PONTIAN: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday reiterated that even though Pakatan Harapan (PH) has been in power for only less than two years it has cured many diseases that have been paralyzing the country economy.

“We are in power only for more than one and a half years.

“Many have said we have been unsuccessful, but we managed to cure a lot of diseases that were left behind (by Barisan National government),” said Dr. Mahathir at a Ceramah here last night.

He also advised people to give him and Pakatan Harapan (PH) government enough time, at least five years to fulfill the election promises and solve the country`s financial woe.

“We ask for five years (to fully revive the country’s economy) and we have plans to transform the country, especially in terms of wealth distribution among the people,”  he added.

In another event today, the 94-year-old Langkawi MP urged people to vote for Pakatan Harapan in the coming Tanjung Piai by-election.

He told the voters that voting for the opposition Barisan Nasional (BN) out of anger is like shooting themselves.

“If you reject the candidate who can serve us, because of anger or other reasons, you will be the ones at a loss.

“In English, they say don’t shoot yourself in the foot. If we do so, who knows what will happen,” the prime minister said at a ceramah in Kukup, Tanjung Piai today.
