“You have to ask him that, because he may change his mind tomorrow. But Bersatu have decided to leave the party,” He added

However, Anwar quickly pointed out that  he is willing to cooperate with everyone including Dr Mahathir.

“I am not discounting anywith anyone including Mahathir. I have no problem meeting and having discussions with Mahathir and the others,” he said.

When pressed  about Mahathir’s statement that Malays are unable to accept him as the next premier,  Anwar said that it was Mahathir who rejected him and reiterated that 60 percent of Malays supported him during the Port Dickson by-election.

“My patience is legendary and I have been slandered on many things.. Our priority is our struggle to uphold justice and the interests of the people.” He said.
