PAKATAN Harapan’s focus is to win the next general election rather than quibbling over government leadership, as speculation builds when Prime Minister Najib Razak will call GE14, Nurul Izzah Anwar told a forum in Melbourne.

The PKR vice-president said the pact will not be swayed by distractions about a Dr Mahathir Mohamad-Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail ticket as interim prime minister and deputy should it capture Putrajaya.

  • To Nurul, "get your house in order first, fight a good fight."

    One should accept that Anwar may mever be the PM in his lifetime. But he is already a martyr for many who fought with him against the tyranny of Mahatir.

    To sign up Mahathir, You will betray the people who put you into Parliament.
    You CAN one day me the PM of Malaysia, god willing. His torchbearer. Your dad would be proud of you.

    You can fight Najib on your own right. Just dont betray the people who gave their all by sleepin with an enemy. Do you trust Mahathir?

    • Don't think your intention to sow discord between Nurul and Tun M will work. The whole movement of reformasi is waiting for 70% of rakyat to happen and this will be realized by a second tsunami brought about by Tun M. PH needs Tun without whom reformasi will become only an empty slogan.

  • Unlike others, Nurul is not one who bears grudges. She is forward looking and judges well on issues that benefit bigger agenda. She has all the makings of a PM in the future.

  • Nurul is a leader that imparts leadership to the grassroots, unlike the many NATO opposition politicians.
