DAY 2 of new Pakatan Harapan government: "There is no senior party, no junior party here. We are all equal... it is decided for the moment we are only going to create a small cabinet of important ministers. Not a full cabinet," says Dr Mahathir. #GE14
Dr Mahathir says core ministries will be:
2. Home affairs
3. Defense
4. Education
5. Rural development
6. Economy
7. Public works
8. Transport
9. Multimedia, Science and Technology
10. Foreign Affairs
"If any money is paid to ministers or anyone to cross over, we will regard that as corruption. Just like paying money to get votes. MACC seems to have ignored this throughout the election...we will properly investigate all of this. Because we want to follow the rule of law..."
BREAKING: Dr Mahathir says the King of Malaysia has indicated he is willing to pardon @anwaribrahim immediately. He should be released immediately when he is pardoned. After which he is free to fully participate in politics, says Dr M.
Role of core members of the coalition must be equally the same without any discrimination. Cabinet members will be revealed tomorrow.
Asked if @anwaribrahim would be serving in Cabinet with Dr Mahathir again, he said this will be decided after he is out.
Dr Mahathir says they have not formed a full government yet.
Who will be cabinet ministers in Malaysia's first ever Pakatan Harapan government? I asked @cmIimguaneng if he'd take up a post.
A countdown to @anwaribrahim's release from prison could become shorter if the King grants him a royal pardon. But freedom will still take some time and isn't happening today, says his daughter @n_izzah.
Asked Dr Mahathir if we would see him and @anwaribrahim serving side by side in cabinet again. He said Anwar would have to win a parliamentary seat first. "Whether he will immediately join cabinet or not will be decided when the time comes".…
"We expect (Anwar to be released) in a week... The Prison Act (stipulates) if the director of prison is satisfied & he enables (Anwar) to be released immediately, then it will be within the next two or three days. (Maybe) Monday, I don’t know," she added.
Friday's wrap: Dr Mahathir will be announcing his core cabinet today and it looks like the #1MDB investigations will begin by zooming in on the AG. And what will Anwar Ibrahim's release mean for this new government?
