Malaysia’s jailed opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has declared support for arch nemesis Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in his efforts to pressure Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to resign.
“I support the position of friends in civil society, political parties and individuals including Tun Dr Mahathir, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and others to build up strength and understanding together as articulated by the leader of the opposition recently,” he said in a message from prison on Thursday (March 3).
“This understanding will focus on the demand for Mr Najib to resign as Prime Minister as he has clearly failed to lead this nation,” he said.
Kalau kita tak ikut, ana takut Pas akan jadi parti yang ketinggalan jauh.
Bukan ana kata Mamu ini baik sangat orangnya, tapi dia masih ada kekuatan dan pengaruh. Bab itu ana ada rasa khuatir sikit.
Kita kena buat keputusan cepat. Jangan tertinggal bas. Dalam politik, kalau tertinggal bas, jawabnya ke laut.
