PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim calls on all civil servants to work alongside his administration, saying it is impossible for ministers to achieve success without the civil service.

Having had previous experience working in various ministries, the 10th Prime Minister said he had benefitted from the views and ideas brought forward by civil servants.

The Prime Minister said he will also advise his soon-to-be-appointed Cabinet members to forge good working relations with civil servants.

"I know many are waiting to know (who will become ministers).

"I will be sure to remind them to respect the process," he said on Tuesday (Nov 29).

Anwar was addressing staff at the Prime Minister's Department, his first meeting with them since his appointment as Prime Minister.

Anwar took the oath of office as Malaysia's 10th Prime Minister on Nov 24.
