PETALING JAYA: Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says he would not talk or cooperate with Anwar Ibrahim again. 

He also said he is quitting Pakatan Plus, after PKR rejected the “Mahathir-Anwar” combination for prime minister.

However,  he still wants to continue working with DAP and Amanah.

He told Sin Chew Daily Tuesday (June 23) morning in a video interview.

“I won’t cooperate with him (Anwar) because he doesn’t want to work with me. I need to find other ways to become PM. There might be some other way!

“They have been in Opposition for so long. Before I joined them, in 2008 and 2013, they tried to win but they lost. They couldn’t win.

“I joined them in GE14, and with enough Malay support, we won.

“They were very clear they needed Malay votes to win and thought I could bring them the Malay votes because Bersatu is a Malay party and the Malays won’t support multiracial parties,” Dr Mahathir said.
