Anwar is confident that the Unity Government will remain until GE16
KUALA LUMPUR - The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has expressed confidence that the Unity Government that was established six months ago will remain until the next General Election (GE).
Therefore, the Pakatan Harapan chairman reminded the government leadership to ensure all governance efforts are implemented perfectly in addition in putting an end to the practice of corruption in the government policy.
"We are proud for being able to establish a government and it was unexpected (because) this Unity Government was said to last for three months only, before Ramadan and before Raya, but with the convention held today we are giving a clear signal to all Malaysians and the whole world that this government is not only stable but will remain so until the next general election.
"The government will remain to ensure good governance, stop the practice of corruption and abuse of power as well as making sure the policies can drive organisations and defend the fate of the people," he said when delivering the mandate of the Unity Government National Convention 2023 at the World Trade Center (WTC) on Sunday.
The convention which was held for the first time was attended by almost 10,000 delegates and supporters from 19 parties supporting the Unity Government and was held simultaneously with the Unity Government National Women, Pemuda and Puteri Convention.
Meanwhile, Anwar had also expressed appreciation to Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi following the coalition's support in establishing the Unity Government.
"Zahid is one of the leaders who was attacked the most besides myself so I want to tell everyone that if it wasn't for Zahid's commitment as Umno president and the support of Umno MPs, history would have been different.
"So we also have to recognise his (Zahid's) role and Umno," he said.
Anwar also said the role of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in dealing with the critical political situation at that time was also a determining factor, in addition to support from the Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS).
