Newly-appointed Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad had said yesterday that the ruling coalition would petition the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for a full pardon, and he would be released the same day the pardon was granted. Mahathir, now 92, once served as Barisan leader and prime minister for more than 20 years but crossed over to the opposition out of dissatisfaction with corruption scandals enveloping his successors.
His first stint in prison - from 1998 to 2004 - came after Mahathir, then serving as prime minister - sacked him as deputy over claims of Anwar's homosexuality.
A full pardon is however required for him to re-enter politics because, as it stands, he is disqualified from being an MP for five years following his release.
"Pardon (is) based on a miscarriage of justice", said Anwar's daughter Nurul Izzah Anwar, who is also Permatang Pauh MP in a WhatsApp text to The Straits Times.

This would allow the new government to make the jailed leader the next premier within two years, a key campaign pledge.
Mahathir has said he will step aside and hand over the prime minister's post to Anwar once he is pardoned.
He explained that Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Nurul Izzah Anwar's visit to the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital on Friday afternoon - where Anwar is being held - was just a normal family visit.
"Whether Anwar will be part of the cabinet or not will be decided when the time comes", he said. Dr Mahathir said initial policies would focus on fulfilling promises made in the alliance's manifesto, including the abolition of a goods and services tax (GST). "We do not want to favour any country, we want to ensure that the market for Malaysia is as large as possible".
