Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has stated that LGBT individuals, secularism, and communist ideology will never be recognised in his administration

In an interview with Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) for their 'Naratif Khas Bersama Perdana Menteri' (Special Narrative With The Prime Minister) programme, last Friday, 6 January, Anwar stated that the issue was only raised by certain political parties in the nation to spread lies.

"Sometimes, these politicians will say that if Anwar becomes prime minister, then Islam will be ruined, secularism and communism will gain a foothold, and LGBT will be recognised," he said in a statement reported by Bernama.

"This is a delusion. Of course, it will not happen, and God willing under my administration, this is not going to happen."

During the interview, Anwar was also asked to respond to claims of a weak administration under his leadership because coalitions in the government had to sign a cooperation agreement

The Prime Minister said the agreement had to be signed because the majority obtained at that time was too narrow. However, to prove that he gained support, Anwar brought a motion for a vote of confidence in parliament last year after he was challenged by the opposition, who questioned his legitimacy as Prime Minister.

"This vote of confidence motion was being challenged by the opposition. They said Anwar had no support," he said according to a report by Free Malaysia Today (FMT).

"In a democratic system, the best way to prove it is through a vote of confidence or a vote of no confidence, which was not proposed. So, I submitted this (the motion) and have proven that I have strong support."

On the first day of sitting, Anwar's legitimacy as the 10th Prime Minister was proven when the motion of confidence tabled by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof was passed with a voice vote, of which more voices were in favour of him.

When asked about the lawsuit he filed against several individuals, Anwar stated that it was because certain accusations touched on his authority as a leader

"Thousands of accusations have been made, slanders have been hurled and for decades I have accepted it but if I feel it is too much as they question my authority and credibility as a leader, then they should be taught that this freedom does not give them the freedom to slander," he added.

"...We use religion, then we slander, we make qazaf (accusations), I would like to ask their teachers, ustaz to teach them first before teaching others."

Since taking the oath of office as the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Anwar has filed lawsuits against several individuals, including Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Muhyiddin Yassin, for making false accusations against him.
