Anwar hands over SD supporting Dr M as PM

PETALING JAYA: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has handed in a statutory declaration at the Palace, stating Pakatan Harapan has named Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as their candidate for Prime Minister.

Earlier Saturday (Feb 29), Anwar spoke to reporters outside Eastin Hotel before leaving for Istana Negara, that he was grateful to the party leadership for agreeing with his motion to stop the struggle for power.

"I will be taking a step back and have named Tun Mahathir as our candidate for Prime Minister so that we can avoid the country being further dragged into this power struggle and into an old system which has been rejected by the people.

"May Allah bless our efforts to save the country and give attention to activities that can restore the economy," he said.

Anwar said he again chose to look at what the country needed within the bigger picture instead of his own personal agenda.

"I hope my friends will not be anxious or disappointed but think of the country and how we can develop it," he said.
