KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim intends to accelerate a needs-based New Economic Policy set by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad under his leadership.

Anwar - who was introduced as the next prime minister at a symposium in Parliament - reiterated previous statements that the "obsolete" racial New Economic Policy must be dismantled, but added that it must be done with a firm commitment to needs-based affirmative action to help the poor and those who have been sidelined.
