KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim invites the public to listen and digest the mandate he will deliver on Thursday (Jan 18) in conjunction with the discourse on “Developing a Madani Nation” at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC).

The Prime Minister said his mandate, to be aired live, is part of efforts towards a new leap for the nation.
