Pakatan Harapan’s Prime Minister Candidacy To Be Announced In Special Meeting

A decision on the potential Prime Minister candidate from Pakatan Harapan will be announced in a special meeting set to discuss the future of the coalition, says Nurul Izzah Anwar, PKR vice-president. 

Pakatan Harapan’s priority is about reform, thus the agenda of the people takes center stage while the issue (Prime Minister) will not be commented, added Nurul. 
Nurul Izzah responded to speculation of Pakatan Harapan’s potential candidate for the post of Prime Minister after Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim failed to overturn his conviction on sodomy charge. 

In an article written by Ong Boon Teck published earlier by Sinar Harian, quoted the former prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in an interview with The Australian, as saying Anwar is too old for the job, if indeed BN lost its rein over the country’s administration. 

Nurul Izzah however refuted the allegations and further states, in order to save the country, toppling the prime minister is not enough. The reform agenda is the priority to ensuring no prime minister is left to regulate and abuse the institution as presently practiced.
