PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic) says that he will not offer himself as Pakatan Harapan's candidate for the prime minister's post.

"In reference to calls to focus completely on the upcoming general election, I choose not to offer myself as a prime ministerial candidate" said the jailed PKR adviser in a statement.

Anwar added that the ongoing "friction" caused by debates over the issue was "exhausting" as the decision was best left in the hands of the voters.

"I hope all the energy would be focused on strengthening the election machinery and gaining the support of the people," he said.
