It is not yet certain if Pakatan Harapan chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad will reprise his role as the prime minister should the opposition win enough seats in the next election to form the government. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, December 28, 2017.

PKR has set three conditions that must be met for it to consent to making Dr Mahathir Mohamad the opposition pact’s interim prime minister ahead of the 14th general election.

According to a party insider who attended the party’s political bureau meeting on December 19, the first condition is that de facto PKR  leader Anwar Ibrahim is immediately released from jail and installed as the prime minister within a year of the opposition coming into power.

  • Its Azmin's bag of dirty tricks and his "skim cepat kuasa" ............. " .... conditions would be put to Dr Mahathir, who would have to sign a contract ..." - Didn't Azmin himself broke the contract he signed on seats allocation for the Sarawak state elections, causing the state's residents disgust with PH ?........ " .... hand the office over to Anwar ..." - one can pretty guess who wants to be PM after Anwar ........ "... it fears that many Umno leaders will flock to join Bersatu after GE14...... " - but OK if they join PKR ??? ....we remembered September 16, 2008 when PKR tried to lure "kataks" over; so NOT only the dishonest and corrupted are NOT jailed but even REWARDED for "jumping" ??? .......!@#$ !!!! ..... its blady self-interest .... rakyat interests are pushed aside !!!!

  • Why no conditions on public declaration of assets? Why did Azmin's exco REFUSED to publicly declare their assets when his predecessor's did?

  • " ..... This is not the first time that PKR has delayed proceedings in PH....... " - Seems PKR is trying to undermine and backstabbing everyone in PH, first its DAP and Amanah, now its Bersatu's turn. Is PAS the only friend they want?

  • If PKR is still conniving to ensure a total victory selfishly for themselves then PH is a lost cause!!!!!!!!!!!. All the three conditions are cearly stated as if they are one ensuring victory. My heavenly advise to the rest of PH is go all out to win seats and rule out PKR as partner. Collabrated back with UmnoBN and make a change from there. Leave PKR and all their dubious leaders to rot in jail or non existent treament. They fully deserve it. Rakyat are fully behing Madhatir, DAP and Amanah. Hindfraf can also choose where they want to go.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
