Anwar to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia by May 2020

Many DAP and PKR representatives are calling for May 2020 to be the date for a 
smooth transition of power that would see PKR president Anwar Ibrahim appointed
 as prime minister this year.
DAP and PKR leaders and grassroots are expecting Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad
 to leave office in May.
Yesterday Dr Mahathir conceded that he would step down and relinquish his
 post with immediate effect if the Pakatan Harapan presidential council demand it.
“I think this will be decided by all four (Harapan) parties together. Whether they
 want me to go or not to go,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.
In a statement released today, DAP leader who is also the Sungai Pelek 
assemblyperson Ronnie Liu is happy with Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s remarks
yesterday that he was prepared to relinquish his post if Pakatan Harapan
 presidential council asked him to do so.
“In the light of what is happening in the country lately, it is necessary for 
Dr Mahathir to pass the baton to Anwar.
“This transition of power should be done smoothly for the good of the
 nation, the people and Dr Mahathir and his family as well,” said Liu.
Mahathir had previously said the handover of power would not
 happen before Malaysia hosted the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
 (Apec) in November.
But many PKR leaders called for a May deadline instead.
“With Mahathir’s intentions to carry out a cabinet reshuffle, perhaps,
 it is time now for him to also allow Anwar to pick his new team to
 helm the government,” said Liu.
