KUALA LUMPUR — In a family Hari Raya video, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has reminded Malaysians the fight is not yet over, and there is just “a little bit more” to go.

The video starts with a sombre looking Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, staring at an empty chair — Anwar’s seat at the dining table — in the couple’s home.

The deputy prime minister is seen reflecting on the years Anwar was imprisoned between 1998 and 2004, and 2015 and 2017.

Then comes the news the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has agreed to grant Anwar a full pardon.

Anwar is then shown checking his books in his home library, while speaking to his daughter Nurul Nuha.

“So how? You’re free now papa. What are your plans? We rest first all right, papa?” Nurul Nuha tells Anwar.

A smiling Anwar replies, telling her he has rested long in prison, and now is the time to continue working for the people, to not betray the trust they put in Pakatan Harapan.

“People are waiting. They gave us the trust. If we don’t fulfil the trust and support they gave, it will be a waste,” Anwar says.

Dr Wan Azizah then walks in, telling Anwar it will be a hard task from now, as there are many things to fulfil in terms of PH’s promises to the people.

“Since we have won, it is even more difficult, dear. We have to fulfil all the promises. Why? Because we need to fill our win. If possible, with the support of the people, we can do it,” Dr Wan Azizah says.

“All right. Like how we did before, all this while, we will be together, in good times and bad,” Anwar says, hugging the two women.
