In some chapters of his book, Dr Mahathir also outlined the reasons why he feel displeased with Anwar.

Dr Mahathir admits that he had promised he would step down before the next general election, but Anwar presured him to step down earlier.

“I only needed extra time to resolve some of the more complicated problems we were facing. Other members of the coalition were gracious enough to allow me this.

“They did not force me to step down. It was only Anwar who was putting pressure on me to leave sooner.”

Mahathir also pointed out that there was talk about setting up a Malay-Muslim government, the moment Pakatan Harapan (PH) won the elections.

“But I never thought it would happen. I could not see how it could happen.

“Besides, I could not imagine Bersatu leaving Pakatan Harapan,” he said.
