My wife would do the same

Dr M: My wife would do the same

Malaysiakini News

Dr Mahathir Mohamad responded with his trademark sarcasm when asked to comment on his former protege-turned-nemesis Anwar Ibrahim announcing his decision to ‘run’ in a by-election.


“A loving wife could do nothing better… My wife would have done the same,” replied the 82-year-old former premier with a grin when posed with the question during a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Wan Azizah – who is also PKR president and opposition leader – submitted her resignation to the House Speaker this morning.

If successful, Insya Allah, the by-election would pave the way for Anwar to return to Parliament after a 10-year setback to his political career and try to claim the prime minister post, which Mahathir had denied him back then.
