PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has done well to ensure political stability in his first 100 days in power, says an analyst.

Universiti Malaya’s Awang Azman Pawi cited Anwar’s decision to call for a vote of confidence following his appointment and the establishment of the unity government secretariat as among the measures that strengthen his administration.

Awang Azman said Anwar also acted quickly to deliver concessions to Sabah and Sarawak as another key factor to ensure stability.

The Anwar-led government has increased the annual special grants to Sabah and Sarawak by at least 10-fold to RM260 million (Sabah) and RM300 million (Sarawak). The Borneon states have also been granted autonomy over infrastructure projects under RM50 million.

“This stability allows Anwar to focus on the country’s economy and strengthen ties with the neighbouring countries,” Awang Azman told FMT.
