Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad has already started campaigning for Parti Amanah Negara in the coming Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar by-elections, claims an ex-minister.

Former de facto law minister Zaid Ibrahim told Malaysiakini this when asked if the long-time former Umno president would support the splinter party that had come from the latter's arch-enemy PAS.

“Oh, he (Mahathir) is backing Amanah. He has already gone down to campaign,” claimed Zaid when met after a forum titled 'Should the Roles of the Attorney General and the Public Prosecutor be separated?'
