Malaysia: Anwar plotted against me right after pardon, says Dr Mahathir

  • DR Mahathir Mohamad has accused Anwar Ibrahim of going behind his back to rally support after the jailed politician was pardoned in 2018.
  • The former prime minister alleged Anwar met with the royalty and other parties to shore up support for himself instead of supporting the Pakatan Harapan administration.
  • “When I arranged for his release and pardon, he did not support me. Instead, he went around meeting everyone, he met with the royalty, foreign powers and many more,” Dr Mahathir said in an interview with Malaysian Gazette on 30 Sep 20.
  • The Langkawi MP said he mulled on the idea of bringing Anwar to his cabinet but did not after what the latter did and the solid performance of former deputy prime minister Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Anwar’s wife.
