It is likely the talk within PH that she should be the next PM as soon as she garnish enough support from PH MP ss well as consensus from current PM.
From the performance of Anwar since release from jail and pardoned by Agong, there is nothing there that could highlight him as next PM.

As a Muslim woman prime minister, her appointment would elevate Malaysia to the ranks of the progressive countries, which have women prime ministers or presidents. Britain, Israel, Germany, India, Australia, South Korea and Indonesia.
As deputy prime minister, Wan Azizah is the "number one woman" in the nation. She wields much power, or as much power as Mahathir, will allow...
