Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim addressed some of the rumours spreading around during an interview with Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) in its ‘Naratif Khas Bersama Perdana Menteri’ programme on 7 January 2023,
Anwar said that LGBT, the concept of a secular state, and communism would never be recognized during the administration of the unity government.
He explained that the rumours were created by certain parties to spread lies and question his authority as a leader.
Anwar also addressed the claims that he runs a dictatorial government.
He said the cooperation agreement between Pakatan Harapan (PH) and the coalitions was made to form the unity government because the majority obtained at the time was too narrow.
And to prove that he has the support, he brought the confidence vote motion in parliament last year after the Opposition challenged his legitimacy.
This vote of confidence motion was being challenged by the opposition. They said Anwar had no support… and in a democratic system, the best way to prove is through a vote of confidence or a vote of no confidence which was not proposed. So, I submitted this (the motion) and Alhamdulillah we have strong support. So, my question is where is the dictator? Am I breaking the law?Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
Anwar’s legitimacy as the 10th Prime Minister was proven when the motion of confidence tabled by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof was passed with a voice vote, in which more voices were in favour.

When asked about the lawsuits he filed against several people, Anwar said it was because the accusations undermined his leadership authority.
Since officially becoming the prime minister on 24 November 2022, he has filed lawsuits against several people including Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for making false accusations against him.
Thousands of accusations have been made, slanders have been hurled and for decades I have accepted it but if I feel it is too much as they question my authority and credibility as a leader, then they should be taught that this freedom is not the freedom to slander. We use religion, then we slander, we make qazaf (accusations), I would like to ask their teachers, ustaz (religious teacher), to teach them first before teaching others.Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
