LANGKAWI (Bernama): Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is confident that the recent chaos which marred the PKR congress, will not affect Pakatan Harapan as a government.

The Prime Minister said that it was the party’s internal problem and he would not interfere.

"It is normal that there would be disagreements in any leadership, but I am confident that it will not affect Pakatan as the government.

"Even the opposition has a lot of problems but since they are not the government, the people do not really care. But being the government, there is bound to be some misunderstanding, that is normal," he said.

Dr Mahathir said this to reporters after attending a get together with Langkawi department heads, Pakatan division heads and Village Community Management Council leaders at Hotel Adya, Kuah here Sunday (Dec 8).

When asked about the claims of PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali

that party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was overly concerned with the transfer of power as prime minister, Dr Mahathir said he did not want to interfere in the party's affairs.

"That is PKR’s internal problem. I do not want to interfere with whatever he (Azmin) thinks as long as we can work together as a strong government," said the Langkawi MP.

Commenting on an Amanah delegate who said that the "flying car” project was useless and embarrassing while debating the presidential speech at the Amanah national convention, Dr Mahathir said the issue was due to misunderstandings about the project.

"The mistake was in calling it the flying car. It is actually a big drone which is capable of carrying people around without having to use the roads as it can fly.

"It is okay for the people to reject it. This is just an idea, if they like it they can accept it, but if they don't like it, they are not forced to accept it," he said. - Bernama
