DAP confirms Anwar as choice for PM

SEREMBAN: DAP reitrates its stand in choosing opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as their choice for the prime minister should Pakatan alliance wins the 13th general election.


This was voiced by DAP secretery-general Lim Guan Eng during a ceramah at Oakland industrial area here on Friday night, putting a halt to questions on the party's stand on the matter.
"If the opposition took over Putrajaya, who will be the next prime minister? Lim Guan Eng?
"The new prime minister would be Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim," he said to the audience.
He said the Pakatan pact would enter Putrajaya peacefully should it wins the general election, assuring no cracks in the pact.
"There will be no fights but we instead will take over the administration together," he said.
Lim's statement has also answered speculations on whether DAP has approved Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to be the next prime minister due to the party's willingness to use the Pas symbol in the 13th general election.
Its partner, Pas, on the other hand, appears to have reservations with its deputy spiritual leader Datuk Dr Haron Din previously quoted saying that Anwar was only one of the candidates suggested for the post.
Haron said there were other names suggested, including Hadi, who was nominated by Pas' Syura Council.
The ceramah, which started at 8.30pm saw Lim playing the hatred sentiments towards Barisan Nasional in attracting voters for the Pakatan alliance.
He had also seen to be repeating the same promises, among all guaranteeing for free education, abolishing tolls and providing yearly aids to the people.
