Anwar will be PM if Pakatan wins polls says DAP But PAS otherwise

What will happen if two radical and extremist political ideologies meet?

The DAP maintained that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be the prime minister if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) wins the next general election.

The PAS Ulama wing pushed for the party to be the major power in PR so Abdul Hadi can be elected as Cabinet leader.

Following a push by PAS delegates at the PR party’s assembly last week for Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to be the next PM, the DAP reminded the public today that Anwar is the opposition pact’s choice to be the next leader of the country.

This is the consensus of three parties that is Anwar. If it is Pakatan Rakyat that wins, it is Anwar who will be prime minister,” DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng told reporters at the Parliament lobby when asked to comment.

Asked about the proposal for the party with the most seats to get the prime minister’s post, Lim said that consensus among the PR parties was more important.

“But we think (the one) that can represent the whole of PR, the whole of Malaysia is Anwar...” Lim said, pointing out that his party currently has the most seats, followed by PKR and PAS.
