PUTRAJAYA: A group of Bersatu Youth members have gathered in numbers outside the Perdana Leadership Foundation to express their support for Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
About 100 of them arrived before 8pm Friday (Feb 21), anticipating the arrival of Dr Mahathir at the Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting here.
Armada exco member Mohd Fahim Mohd Farid said the group will support whatever Dr Mahathir decides for his premiership.
"If he said he will let go after Apec, then he will let go after Apec. If he wants to stay as Prime Minister until the end of his term, then let him stay, and we will support the move.
"But we are against anyone who tries to pressure him to step down beforehand.
"The question of the power transition should only be discussed within the presidential council.
"If it is brought up in public, it will only affect the administration of the government," he said to reporters.
The issue of power transition is expected to be raised in the Pakatan presidential council meeting.
Dr Mahathir, who is also Bersatu chairman, had repeatedly said that he would hand over the prime ministership to PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim after the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) meeting in November.
