Dr Mahathir Mohamad today agreed with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that anyone who wants to be the next prime minister must use the right channel.

He echoed Anwar’s remark that those with ambitions to lead the country must do so through legitimate means.

Yesterday, Anwar said the position of the prime minister must not be won through clandestine measures such as “secretive meetings.”

“We agree with him, it must be through the right way,” Dr Mahathir said when asked for his views on Anwar’s remarks.

Yesterday, Anwar issued the critical remarks when commenting on his deputy, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali’s furtive meeting with 22 Umno MPs at the latter’s official residence in Putrajaya on Monday.

On the possible reshuffle of the Cabinet, Dr Mahathir said he would raise this during the next Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting.

Asked whether he would take ministers’ parliamentary attendance into account for the reshuffle, the prime minister only said their positions were his prerogative.
