PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pix) says she has no problem with being a “seat warmer” for her jailed husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
“I don’t mind, yeah,” said Dr Wan Azizah to a question by interviewer Mehdi Hasan on Al Jazeera’s UpFront programme.
“Frankly, he’s a better leader. He’s a better administrator. He’s a better guy for the job. Why not?” she said when asked why she would give up the prime minister’s post if the Opposition wins.
Mehdi then asked why people would vote for her if she is not going to be prime minister.
Dr Wan Azizah claimed that polls show that Anwar is “the most popular”.
“One of the polls shows that Anwar is the man that is supposed to be the next prime minister,” she said.
