SHAH ALAM: PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail will be interim prime minister should Pakatan Harapan win the 14th General Election, said party vice-president Rafizi Ramli (pic).
The announcement, in his speech at PKR's 12th annual national congress Sunday, was followed by Rafizi detailing a plan that would have Dr Wan Azizah making way for her husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be prime minister.
"(Dr) Wan Azizah will be interim prime minister, and Anwar will be released (from prison)," he said to applause from the delegates.
He said Anwar could be released from prison within a month of Dr Wan Azizah becoming interim prime minister.
"After he is out, we can hold a by-election to make him the prime minister," he added.Rafizi made the announcement despite Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir's assertion earlier on Sunday that Pakatan's choice for prime minister will be discussed together by all parties before a decision is made.
