Pakatan Harapan (PH) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim reiterated that he still has the majority numbers to form a government as of tonight.
The Pakatan Harapan candidate for prime minister reportedly told a foreign reporter when they met outside his residence, Sin Chew Daily reported.
He also refuted claims that he was meeting with Barisan Nasional chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to form a government.
“It is rumour,” he said.
Anwar Ibrahim also shared that he would submit the statutory declarations as requested by Dewan Rakyat speaker Tan Sri Azhar Azizan Harun.
It’s a done deal
“We have virtually settled this. As of last night, it is settled,” he said as quoted by NST.
However, he remained tight-lipped about which parties or other coalition MPs he would work with.
He also expressed his confidence that he would be given the chance to lead the country.
To make things more formal, the political parties will issue a statement by tonight or tomorrow.
When asked whether Pakatan Harapan would form a coalition government with Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Anwar said it would not be easy.
“After all, GPS and the Barisan Nasional have a long history working together.”
“But we have a common mission: to save the country’s economy, future, and work together to create stable political environment,” he added.
