“If that is the people’s choice, why not?” Dr Mahathir said during a press conference here.

He also said that he stood by his previous assessment that Anwar was unfit to be prime minister, but said that his opinion only applied to the “prevailing circumstances of that time”.

“I might change my mind again next year,” he quipped.
