PETALING JAYA: Dr Mahathir Mohamad had made a shocking revelation during an online press conference that he wanted to give the position of prime minister to Anwar Ibrahim but the current prime minister stepped in to deny Anwar the seat.
He alleged that Muhyiddin Yassin brought down the Pakatan Harapan government to take the place of the prime minister.
He further states that Muhyiddin is aware that he would have no chance of becoming the prime minister if Anwar took the job because he had promised that Anwar would take over when he stepped down. If Anwar had become the prime minister, he believes that Muhyiddin would not be appointed as Anwar deputy and Muhyiddin would not have a chance to lead the country.
Meanwhile, on the Black Flag movement, Dr Mahathir indicated that the rakyat are suffering and they do not know where to seek help. “The government is interested in being the government and the prime minister is interested in being the prime minister”, he said. – FMT
