PKR lawmakers yesterday reiterated at a public forum the need for Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad to hand over power to party president Anwar Ibrahim by May.

Although Anwar said the transition issue should be left to the Pakatan Harapan presidential council, MPs William Leong, Chang Lih Kang, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and Wong Chen said a May handover is crucial for the coalition’s survival at the next elections.

  • This shows the failure of PH as a whole, Anwar needs time to implement 'his' reform while Dr M needs time to implement 'his', meanwhile, manifesto is not a bible & after 20 months, there's no coherent master plan for the country as everyone step on everyone else's toes & comment on everything other than their own ministry and PH fanboys still tell others to be patient & PH still learning, reform takes time, etc, etc... while reform will takes time, the lack of coherence & a master plan after 20 months CANNOT be justified as 'still learning' or inexperience.

  • Trully, Mahathir effect is not happening. He needs to go in May 2020. But if he's so interested in the Apex meeting in Nov. Anwar can appoint him as the Senior Minister fully incharged of the Apec meeting. PM handover is very important in May, bcos domestic investors are not confident if the flip and flop policies now and Dr M is not putting a stop to the race and religion political exploitation by extreme politicians.
