Dr M: Najib should not be PM

MANCHESTER: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he had second thoughts about Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak becoming Prime Minister as Najib had failed to speak up about the real reasons behind Barisan Nasionals losses in the general election.

The former prime minister claimed that Najib was not brave enough to directly say anything that was not liked by his boss.

We see that he is a penakut (coward). He is always saying, yes sir, yes sir, saya sokong, saya sokong (I support, I support).

He said, when the prime minister blamed Barisans losses on sabotage, Najib merely agreed to it.

Dr Mahathir cited another instance when Najib gave his full support for Malaysia to build a bridge to Singapore despite the republics disagreement. But Najib suddenly changed his mind when Abdullah decided against the project, he added.

I believe he should rightly explain the real reasons for Barisans losses in the election, he said when asked on the reason for his change of mind about Najib after giving a talk on Malay, Malaysian and Malaysia: Challenges Ahead at the University of Manchester on Saturday.

Dr Mahathir had earlier this month withdrawn his support for Najib to be prime minister but did not give his reason for doing so.

Im not so confident (about him taking over as prime minister). Even so, it all depends on Umno to appoint the person to be prime minister.

Najib will have to face competition from others such as (Tan Sri) Muhyiddin Yassin, (Datuk Seri Dr) Rais Yatim, you never know.

He, however, said if Abdullah were to step down now, it would pave the way for a smooth transition as Najib would succeed him in accordance with Umno tradition.

Dr Mahathir also felt that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would not be the sole candidate for Prime Minister if Pakatan Rakyat were to win in the next general election.

He believed there were other candidates as well, saying PAS was eyeing the post while (DAPs Lim) Guan Eng could be premier too.

Anwar thinks he will be prime minister. Its not that they loved him but its a marriage of convenience, he added.

On the plan to set up a judicial appointments commission and the goodwill ex-gratia payments to six senior judges, Dr Mahathir claimed it was a political move to boost the governments popularity.

He said there was no reason for the compensation because everything was done in accordance with the law.

If they can show me the removal of (former Lord President) Tun Salleh Abas was against procedures prescribed by the law, please let me know, he said.

Wow, Dr. M have been talking a lot lately, its good that he reveals lots of information to the Malaysian. I think its also good if he reveals what were happening during his years as the PM.

The reason why Najib is so ssupportive of Pak Lah is due to the fact that Pak Lah help him in the cover-up of the Mongolian Altatunya murder case. I think he also know that he will step-down very soon and the PM position will belongs to him. He can have whichever beauties he want if he become the next PM… hahaha :twisted:
