PETALING JAYA - It is not up to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to decide who should be the Opposition's prime minister candidate, PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic) said.

He told an English news portal at a Shah Alam court on Monday that there must be consensus among Pakatan Harapan members in naming the candidate.

On the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairman's recent statement that he "might be forced to consider" becoming prime minister again if his friends in the Opposition want him, Anwar said: "It is not for him (to decide), it is for Harapan (to decide)."

"People don't volunteer (to be prime minister), there has to be consensus," he told the news portal on the sidelines of a court hearing.

PKR has always maintained that Anwar is its candidate for prime minister, though the dynamics may change with the involvement of Pribumi in Pakatan.

Pribumi had previously thrown its support for either its chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin or Dr Mahathir as its candidate of choice.

Anwar is currently serving a five-year prison sentence for sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan in 2008.
