ONE just lost her job as the second most powerful person in the country. Another is staring a the prospect of his life-long dream being dashed. But those are not going to stop Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and wife Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail from a little public show of affection as they marked their 40th wedding anniversary today.

Anwar took to Facebook by posting an undated photo of him cutting a cake with Dr Wan Azizah by his side, with the caption: “Happy wedding anniversary, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. Thank you.”

Just over one hour since the post, it has received over 19,000 likes and 500 shares, with loads of congratulatory wishes.

On Twitter, Anwar posted “40 years of kindness, 40 years of courage, 40 years of loyalty, 40 years of strength. Happy Anniversary @drwanazizah May He (Allah) grant us many more years together.”

Anwar and Dr Wan Azizah are among several MPs slated to meet the King today over the Prime Minister’s succession.
