Every single media conference, the press will ask (Dr Mahathir) ‘when are you going to retire?’.

“Give him a break, let him continue to serve,” said Anwar while answering a question regarding the succession plan of the prime minister, after his keynote address at the APEX Leadership Conference here.

Is the highlighted full stop necessary?

Many thanks.

No, I don't think so. It looks wrong. Also, a word seems to be missing. The sentence should begin with: At every single media conference, the press will ask (Dr Mahathir) ‘when are you going to retire?’

We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit

Thanks, FounDit.

You're right about the missing word!
