KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s heightening political quagmire did not stop Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from taking stock of what’s important.
The PKR president whose path to become prime minister was paved until the recent political crisis, took a break to express his appreciation for his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail on their 40th anniversary.
“Happy anniversary Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. Thank you,” he said on his social media accounts while sharing a picture of them cutting a cake together.
Anwar also dropped the #duniaakhirat #tilljannah hashtags to express his feelings for her.
In the past Anwar said that Dr Wan Azizah had suffered much as a mother and a politician throughout his stints in prison.
She also founded Parti Keadilan Rakyat following Anwar’s imprisonment more than two decades ago.
Dr Wan Azizah had served as deputy prime minister when the Agong dissolved the cabinet on the advice of Dr Mahathir following the recent political crisis.
It saw the prime minister resigning on Monday and then being reinstated as the interim prime minister.
The Agong had also dissolved the cabinet on the advice of Dr Mahathir.
