ANWAR Ibrahim’s failure to defeat Budget 2021 yesterday shows he does not have a “strong, formidable and convincing” majority to unseat Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin in Parliament, said analysts. 

They believe Anwar’s long quest for power is to win his own mandate through a general election, which could happen as early as next year once the Covid-19 situation improves. The next general election is only due in 2023.
