I will be DPM until Anwar becomes PM: Wan Azizah

KUALA LUMPUR:Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail says she will not relinquish her post as Deputy Prime Minister until Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim takes over the country’s leadership from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Dr Wan Azizah was commenting on call by Selangor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) treasurer Mohd Shaid Rosli who urged her to step down if PKR wanted the power transfer between Dr Mahathir and Anwar to occur within the year.

Dr Wan Azizah said she would stick to the agreement made by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government which had earlier approved Dr Mahathir as Prime Minister and she was the deputy when taking over the government.

She also stressed that the power transfer would happen as promised by Dr Mahathir as he would make way for Anwar to become prime minister after two years of the formation of the PH government.
