KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has today promised to form an inclusive government despite stressing that it would still be one that is predominantly led by Bumiputera and Malay-Muslim leaders.
After claiming to have the support of the majority of Dewan Rakyat to form a government, the PKR president also listed several of the traits that his government will possess if it gets to be formed, which includes being representative but also recognising Malay privileges.
“This government will represent all people, with majority Malay-Bumiputera majority and fair representation of all races in this country,” he told reporters.
“We are committed to uphold the principles of the constitution that recognises the position of Islam, the sovereignty of Malay rulers, to uphold the position of Malay language as the official language, as well as the special position of the Malays and Bumiputera as well as give assurance to defend the rights of all races.”
“I promise to form a government with integrity and commitment to address the crisis that befell the country, and put an end to corruption and fight for the wellbeing of the people,” he added.
