AYER KEROH, Dec 7 — The focus of the Pakatan Harapan government should be on implementing much-needed reforms and not talk about power transition of the prime minister’s post, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said today.

“You don’t have to talk about it (power transition) every day, every week and every month.

“When the people voted us in, they wanted us to reform and deliver and that should be the focus of the new government,” he told a press conference at Ames Hotel lobby today.

Azmin, who is the Economic Affairs Minister, said since PH had only come into power less than two years ago, the ruling coalition needs to work overtime to ensure the country’s stability.

“There is so much to do. We couldn’t even fulfil all the manifesto yet because that manifesto was planned for five years.

“We are committed to delivering it and we are here to ensure that we will deliver, but we have to work as a team. We should not undermine each other,” he said.

Prior to the 14th General Election last year, Pakatan Harapan had agreed that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will replace Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad but did not set the time frame.
