Dr Mahathir Mohamad today sought forgiveness from Malaysians for any shortcomings on Pakatan Harapan's part that might have caused dissatisfaction among them.
He hoped the spirit of unity displayed by the people of different races at the Aidilfitri open house at Seri Perdana would prevail.
"In this country, we live peacefully and celebrate together the festivals of all races. That's why we can thrive in such a harmonious environment,” he said in front of thousands of guests at the festive gathering hosted by him and his cabinet ministers in Putrajaya.
Alongside him was his wife Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali.
Mahathir added: "My wife and I and our family would like to wish, "Selamat hari raya Aidilfitri, maaf zahir dan batin kepada semua."
