Kota Kinabalu: Amanah and DAP have asked that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's backing of Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal as the opposition's Prime Minister candidate in the event of snap polls be discussed for a consensus to be reached.

Amanah President Mohamad Sabu and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng said both parties saw the former Prime Minister's choice as a "new option to realise efforts to return to the mandate given by the people to the Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Warisan coalition in the 14th General Election.

"However, the suggestion needs to be discussed at Amanah and DAP's central leadership level before it is brought to the PH Presidential Council for a consensus to be reached," they said in a joint-statement Saturday.
