He also expressed confidence that Mr Mohd Rafique would do well.
“In Selangor, GTA’s chances are good, as evident from the support we get in certain areas. But we do not have many banners and flags because we do not have money,” he said, according to Bernama.
Asked which seats GTA could win, the incumbent Langkawi Member of Parliament said: “We can win in many areas. Langkawi, my former constituency Kubang Pasu, Amiruddin’s (Amiruddin Hamzah) current seat and Jerlun, which is held by Mukhriz (Mukhriz Mahathir).”
He said that GTA is expected to unveil its manifesto on Thursday.
Among GTA’s candidates include local celebrities Ahmad Idham Ahmad Nadzri (Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan) and Eizlan Yusof (Sabak Bernam, Selangor), as well as road safety activist Lando Zawawi (Tanjung Karang, Selangor).
Back in 2018, Dr Mahathir, Mr Muhyiddin Yassin and Mr Anwar Ibrahim worked together to capture Putrajaya under the Pakatan Harapan (PH) umbrella. At that time, Dr Mahathir had promised to hand over power to Mr Anwar.
However, the PH administration collapsed 22 months later, due to infighting.
Dr Mahathir then founded Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang).
