SHAH ALAM: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has also slammed PKR lawmaker Hassan Abdul Karim for calling Dr Mahathir to step down.
News portal Malay Mail quoted him yesterday saying there was no need to make statements calling for Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to step down.
“Our (PKR) advice has been to respect the Pakatan Harapan consensus to support Dr. Mahathir as prime minister and Anwar as the next prime minister. That’s been the consensus.
“There are attempts to sabotage (us) both ways but as far as I’m concerned as far as Dr. Mahathir’s concerned and as far as Pakatan Harapan leaders are concerned nothing has changed.
“So my advice is, therefore, refrain from any statements of this nature,” said Anwar when met in Shah Alam for the National Professional Motivators Convention, according to the Malay Mail.
Last week, Hassan Abdul Karim claimed, Dr. Mahathir is not able to manage several issues that have been erupted in the country and therefore he should step down.
PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali yesterday also slammed Hassan for saying that.
Azmin said, “the matter of Dr. Mahathir being Prime Minister has been decided by the people in the last general election,” and reminded Hassan to concentrate on the development of his constituency instead of making statements.
