Mengejutkan sekali bila Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, selaku Presiden PKR, secara terbuka menghentam teruk Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad di dalam wawancara beliau dengan wartawan CNBC, Martin Soong, semalam.
Paling besar implikasinya ialah bila Datuk Seri Anwar kini mendakwa Tun Dr Mahathir memungkiri janji dan mengaku beliau sekarang sudah tidak lagi percaya kepada Tun Dr Mahathir.
Soalnya ialah bagaimanakah Pakatan Harapan akan masih boleh bekerjasama dengan Tun Dr Mahathir bila Datuk Seri Anwar, yang merupakan Presiden Pakatan Harapan, sudah tidak lagi percaya kepada Tun Dr Mahathir?
INI ADALAH HENTAMAN BALAS DATUK SERI ANWAR IBRAHIM TERHADAP TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD DALAM WAWANCARA BELIAU DENGAN CNBC
(1) “Mahathir akan terus menyanggah diri sendiri” (“Mahathir would continue to contradict himself”).

(3) “Saya sekarang tidak lagi percaya Mahathir” (“I now no longer believe Mahathir”).
(4) “Saya ingat Mahathir jujur” (“I thought Mahathir was sincere”).
(5) “Saya terima Mahathir berdasar gambaran luaran” (“I took Mahathir at face value”).

INI ADALAH TRANSKRIPSI WAWANCARA DATUK SERI ANWAR IBRAHIM DENGAN CNBC YANG MENGANDUNGI HENTAMAN BALAS BELIAU TERHADAP TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD
“Tun Mahathir Mohamad, nobody rules him out yet, he came out just recently with a statement, and this is not the first time he said it, saying that the problem in his mind was that yourself, Datuk Seri Anwar, you were too impatient to take over as the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Is that true? Is that fair?”
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim:
“Never mind. Mahathir would continue to contradict himself, and makes promises and reneges on them, so I don’t think it is fair for me to say more. But what is important is everybody knows that I have waited for 21 years, I mean, an impatient man wouldn’t have waited that much. Number two, I have given him the opportunity the latitude to govern without interference, right. Number three, he questioned my role in trying to get all the races together. I am a Malaysian, I am a Malay Muslim, the majority is of course Malay Muslims, but my Chinese, Indian, Iban and Dayak friends are part of my family in Malaysia. And you don’t tell me after 62 years of independence that I don’t need a multiracial party.”
“One of these questions that I always wondering myself over these years is whether or not you actually believed Tun Mahathir Mohamad’s promise to hand over power to you to allow you to become a Prime Minister eventually? Do you still believe him?”
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim:
“Well, not now. But then I thought when he came, he was, he seemed to be quite sincere, came to see me when I was in prison, in the courthouse, and appealed for my support and said, “Look, Anwar, we have to work together” and made promises in private, in public, signed documents. What else? I mean I am just a human and I take people at face value and I think people do change with age, with wisdom, but I am not necessarily right always and in this particular case I apologise. I was wrong. No regrets.”
