PETALING JAYA - Pakatan Harapan has committed to the process of freeing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from jail within one week of forming the next government.

Its newly announced chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic), the former premier of 22 years, said that this would follow the legal process with the application of a royal pardon for Anwar who has been jailed for sodomy.

He was asked if Anwar would become prime minister if Pakatan Harapan wins the next general election.

Anwar served as deputy prime minister under Dr Mahathir for five years before being sacked by the latter in 1998.

He is currently serving the sentence at the Sungai Buloh prison.

When asked who would be Pakatan Harapan's choice for the post of prime minister, Dr Mahathir said they would announce it
