Malaysian PM Anwar confident Unity Govt will continue to be strong

SHAH ALAM (Malaysia), March 18 (Bernama) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim expressed his confidence that the Unity Government he leads will last for the next five years.

Delivering his speech at the PKR Special National Congress 2023 here, Sunday, Anwar, who is also the party's president, said the confidence was based on the strong support of other parties that formed the government for the past four months.

“For us to be strong as a government for the next five years, we need solid cooperation so that we focus on correcting the damage that occurred and developing the country and the people. There will be threats, to some extent, but I am confident that the Unity Government will continue to be strong and here for the next five years.

“Our shared responsibility is to continue the struggle, to mobilise the reform movement and the party machinery so that this MADANI agenda can be translated in a more serious and meaningful way,” he said.

The congress was also attended by the party’s deputy president Rafizi Ramli, secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, DAP secretary-general Anthony Loke, Amanah vice-president Dr Mujahid Yusof and 41 office representatives from foreign embassies.

Anwar also stressed that as Prime Minister, he is not afraid of threats from corrupt individuals or any gathering wanting to bring down the government led by him.

“You want to threaten us with a rally, you want to threaten us with fear of the corrupt, then you chose the wrong prime minister. You are trying to (bring down the government), go ahead, but it will not be easy,” he said.

Despite the criticism levelled at his government, Anwar said that since the Unity Government governed the country in November last year, there has never been any interference by government leaders in issues such as the independence of the judiciary and tender award process.
