PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin says he has written to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad asking for forgiveness if there was anything that had hurt his feelings.

Muhyiddin said he welcomed the statement made by Dr Mahathir that the new Cabinet would last until the next election.

"We have formed this government, and I want Tun (Dr Mahathir) to endorse this government. This is the government for the people.

"It is legal, and it is constitutional," the Prime Minister said after chairing his first Cabinet meeting at Perdana Putra here on Wednesday (March 11).

Muhyiddin was asked whether he was willing to reconcile with Dr Mahathir.

Muhyiddin said the Perikatan government would do its best to perform and help the people.

"This is a good thing for people and I think people are hoping that this government will deliver.

"And we promise we will deliver," he added.

He said that the public would be angry if there was a snap election.

Muhyiddin also said he was willing to meet Dr Mahathir any time.

"I am ready to meet any time, any place, anywhere, for the sake of the country," said Muhyiddin.

In an interview, Dr Mahathir Mohamad predicted the new Cabinet of his successor Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin would last until the next general election.

The former prime minister also admitted that a vote of no-confidence against Muhyiddin was likely to fail.
