BN’s Annuar for Anwar as next PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Annuar Musa (BN-Ketereh) today stated his support for Anwar Ibrahim in the Dewan Rakyat, saying he is proud of the latter’s speeches and line of thinking.

“I don’t know why the other side (PH) is still in doubt and trying to delay the process (of Anwar taking over),” he said.

“Perhaps the Dewan Rakyat can understand. There is a difference in thinking between Langkawi and Anwar, on flying cars and privatisation,” he said, referring to Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is MP for Langkawi.

To this, RSN Rayer (PH-Jelutong) said under Standing Order 36(6), Annuar should continue the debate without ill intentions in order to prevent conflict.

But Annuar said the people were watching the government through the by-elections.

“If there is a vote, we can give our votes to Anwar,” he said. “We don’t look at personality, we look at what the candidate can do for the country.”

PAS previously hinted at efforts to overthrow Mahathir through a vote of no confidence in the Dewan Rakyat, saying it would support the prime minister in the event of a betrayal by Pakatan Harapan (PH) politicians. However, the rumours were denied by several PH leaders including Anwar.

Earlier today, the Port Dickson MP gave a short speech on various issues which included a call for an emergency debate on the recent Christchurch shooting.

He said the victims had been killed due to their religious beliefs.

“The attack at the two mosques had no other aim except to sow hatred and promote violence globally,” he said, adding that the perpetrators were trying to instigate Muslims to take revenge.

“They also tried to create fear and suspicion among non-Muslims towards Muslims,” he said.

He urged the Dewan Rakyat to pass the motion to strongly condemn the incident. The debate will be held at 4.30pm.
