PETALING JAYA: DAP will support PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the next prime minister, says party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng (pic).
"In line with the decision made during the Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting, 42 DAP MPs will give their support to Anwar as the prime minister if he has the numbers to form the government," he said in a statement on Wednesday (Sept 23).
Lim said this in reference to Anwar's announcement earlier, claiming that he had the majority support to form the next government.
Anwar had also said that he had a "strong and formidable majority" to form the government but did not reveal the exact numbers.
Apart from DAP, Parti Amanah Negara, with 11 MPs, has also declared its support for Anwar.
There are 222 seats in the Dewan Rakyat.
