PH govt in no hurry to make Anwar PM

Pakatan Harapan intends for Anwar to be elected to Parliament and made prime minister following his pardon

Anwar Ibrahim, who is tapped by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad to be his successor, is expected to be released on Wednesday, after the Malaysian head of state grants him a full pardon, Malaysian state news agency Bernama reported on Tuesday.

"Indeed, we are going to build the government under Tun to run smoothly and change as much as we want, especially the demands for reform we have been emphasising all this time", she said after visiting Anwar at the Cheras Rehabilitation Centre here today.

"It has never been about our father but doing it because it is right", she said when met at the hospital, where Anwar has been undergoing treatment following surgery.

Asked about Anwar's health, Dr Wan Azizah, who is the MP for Pandan, said her husband was recovering.

The PKR president said the appointment would be made, in accordance with the original plan, during the mid-term of the new Pakatan Harapan administration.

Daim, one of the five members of the Government Council of Elders appointed by Dr Mahathir, said it would be stupid to change prime ministers now.
