THERE is a possibility that Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi will get a deputy prime minister position in Anwar Ibrahim cabinet, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

The former prime minister said Anwar’s government could collapsed if Umno pulls their support like what had happened with the previous administrations.

“They (Umno) are now white washing Zahid. In our legal system you are innocent until proven guilty.

“If he can avoid that (guilty) and he is still innocent then they will say he is qualified.

“They (Umno) will demand, because if Umno pulls out then the government will collapse.”

Earlier today, party sources said Anwar is likely to name Zahid as one of two deputies as the new prime minister balances a stable administration against a strong Malay opposition bench. –  November 30, 2022.
