Wan Azizah declined King’s offer to be made PM, says Anwar

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail declined the King's offer to be made prime minister because she held true to the deal by Pakatan Harapan component parties to elect Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as premier, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar said that Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V had first suggested that his wife, also the PKR president, be appointed Prime Minister as the party had garnered the most seats in GE14.
