KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional and Independent lawmakers are confident that the opposition alliance will not achieve their aim of appointing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as prime minister.
Putrajaya Member of Parliament (MP) Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, for instance, said this was because the opposition would not be able to capture Putrajaya in the upcoming 13th general election.
“The problem with the opposition is that they don’t have a fixed stand on who is the most eligible to be the country’s number one leader.
“I believe the people will not fall for their deceit as the Pakatan parties have not fulfilled whatever they had promised,” he said when met by reporters at the Parliament lobby, here, Monday.
He was asked to comment on the suggestion by a delegate fom PAS’ Dewan Ulama at the party’s 58th Annual Muktamar (General Assembly) which ended yesterday, that the PAS president (Hadi) be made prime minister if the opposition wins the upcoming general election. –Bernama
