During a teleconference with The Wall Street Journal CEO Council on Tuesday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he may remain as premier for up to two years and will play a role in the background even after he steps down. He added that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, after his release, would need to seek a seat in parliament and then might be given a cabinet post, but would play the same role in the coalition as leaders of the other three parties in the alliance.
