EXCLUSIVE | Five years from now, Dr Mahathir Mohamad would be a centenarian but this has not prevented him from wanting to become prime minister again, for a record third time.

His aspiration, however, has ruffled the feathers of PKR, whose president Anwar Ibrahim has been waiting for more than two decades for the coveted post, and created a rift in Pakatan Harapan.

Although he is requesting for a six-month stint before passing the baton to Anwar, who would be his number two under the proposed arrangement, PKR is doubtful that the promise would be kept.

In an exclusive interview with Malaysiakini this morning, Mahathir, however, stressed that his word is his bond.
