ANWAR IBRAHIM CLAIMS HE HAS SUPPORT TO FORM NEW KL GOV’T
Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said on Wednesday he has enough support to form a new government and become prime minister, Malaysia’s national news agency Bernama reported.
Ibrahim claimed he had "formidable" and "convincing" support from lawmakers and could form a strong new government, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) said.
Ibrahim, who is leader of the People's Justice Party, said he had enough backing to bring down Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin's government, but did not disclose how many lawmakers had pledged support, New Straits Times wrote.
He is seeking an audience with the country's king soon. "This is not a backdoor government, this is a government that has the mandate and support. Of course it is a Malay-majority government, but will be inclusive so that every community is represented," Ibrahim said at a Wednesday press conference, according to a transcript published by The Star newspaper.
