Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad says his party Pejuang aims to win 36 seats in the 15th general election.

Mahathir, who founded the party earlier this year, said the number would not be enough for Pejuang to form the government but would allow it to determine who should.

“I think we can be in the position to join either (Perikatan Nasional or Pakatan Harapan) coalition.

“If they can accept our conditions, then we will join them,” he told a press conference in Putrajaya yesterday.

Mahathir also claimed to have a list of 18 MPs from Sabah and Sarawak who were already on Pejuang’s side.

“They are not from our party but they are friendly to us and believe in the same principles,” he said.

Adding that Pejuang would work closely with these MPs, he said he also hoped to get enough support from those in the peninsula.
