SEBERANG PERAI, June 18 — PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has no post now and he is waiting for Prime Minister Dr Mahathir to hand him the premiership when time comes.

“My position now is as a Malaysian citizen, I don’t have any post.

“I am here to support Mahathir, and I hope he performs his duty well,” he said in his speech last night at his daighter Nurul Izzah Anwar’s Hari Raya open house in Permatang Pauh.

He also said that one day he will contest for a parliamentary seat.

“When the time is right, I will contest for a seat but for now, I won’t think about it just yet,” he said, adding that he will wait for Dr Mahathir to hand over when the latter feels it is time.

In waiting, Anuar plans to visit Turkey and many other countries to give speeches about democracy and about how Pakatan Harapan came to power.

“I will go to Turkey to meet with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is also a friend, and I will later visit several other Asian countries including Arab.

“I will talk about this change and how we manage the change in a peaceful manner,” he said.
