Anwar backs anti-Najib consensus including Dr M, calls for support

De facto PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim today announced his support for efforts to oust Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and institute systemic reforms, even if this movement includes former Umno strongman Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was responsible for jailing him in 1998.

Anwar, now under a second incarceration since last year, urged the people to support this effort and to set aside “personal vendettas”.

“I support the position of friends in civil society, political parties, and individuals, including Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Muhyiddin Yassin, and others to build up strength and ​common ​understanding ​together ​as articulated by the leader of the opposition recently.

“This understanding ​will focus on the demand for Najib Abdul Razak to resign as prime minister as he has clearly failed to lead this nation.

“Therefore I urge my friends and the rakyat to stand together in this effort without limiting it with​ personal agendas or personal vendettas.

“We must together chart a new way forward to save our beloved nation,” he said in a statement issued through his party.

Anwar said Najib is responsible for selfish political acts, wreaking havoc upon administrative institutions and burdening the rakyat with continued economic crisis.

Anwar added the 1MDB scandals involving Najib is the “most severe scandal in our history” and has badly damaged the country’s reputation.

“This can only happen when power is centred in one individual such as the prime minister, as well as the failure of key financial, judicial, and enforcement institutions to perform their tasks independently without fear or favour.

“We have also learned from history that meaningful ​transition of power cannot happen only with a change of leadership but it also demands a systemic change,” he said.

Anwar claimed that key institutions have been badly damaged under Najib’s administration and outlined the areas of changes that are needed.

“The rights of the rakyat must be returned through a free and fair elections, as well as an independent judiciary and free media.

“Economic policies must be reformed to refocus on fresh economic growth combined with equitable distribution of wealth,” he said.

From saving nation from Dr M, to saving it with Dr M

“Mahathir wants me dead but I pray that Mahathir will live to 100 years to see the decline and end of Mahathirism.”

Little did Lim Kit Siang know at the time that Mahathir’s influence would dwindle within the next three years of him uttering those words.

Fast backward, prior to the last general election, the 75-year-old DAP stalwart was furious because the 90-year-old former premier wanted the voters in Gelang Patah to put Lim’s political career in a coffin.

There was not the only thing which ruffled his feathers.

Mahathir had also warned that Lim, should he be elected, would bring conflict and antagonism among the races, especially between the Chinese and the Malays.

“When Lim decided to contest in Chinese-majority Gelang Patah, it is because he wanted the Chinese there and in Johor to reject working together and sharing with the Malays.

“An unhealthy racial confrontation would replace Sino-Malay cooperation which has made Malaysia stable and prosperous.

“That cooperation would end when Kit Siang wins Gelang Patah,” he said.

But now, it appears that Lim – having won Gelang Patah – is willing to bury the decades-long hatchet and work together with Mahathir to save the nation from Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Prior to this, he had spent most of his political career attempting to save Malaysia from Mahathir.

For example, in a blog posting in 2012, Lim responded to Mahathir on the reasons for BN’s dismal performance in the 2008 polls under the stewardship of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

“The reason why Abdullah suffered the worst Umno/BN electoral defeat in the 2008 general election is because he failed to live up to his promise in the landslide 2004 general election victory to begin the serious task to dismantle the Mahathirish legacy of corruption, cronyism, and abuses of power.

But then again this is politics, and in the words of Mahathir himself, there are no permanent friends nor foes. Alliances change, according to common interests.

Furthermore, politicians do suffer from amnesiac spells.

Indeed, the recent meeting between Mahathir and Lim “to find a solution to the national cul de sac” shows that politics is really the art of the possible.

Tomorrow, Mahathir is expected to ink a joint declaration with a gaggle of opposition leaders, some of whom had suffered the brunt of Mahathirism.

Foes at the same table: Dr , Harapan to hold joint press meet

Geraldine Tong

The political situation in Malaysia continues to witness bizarre twists, with the latest being a press conference scheduled for tomorrow involving Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Pakatan Harapan.

Revealing this was none other than PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar, whose father Anwar Ibrahim is considered to be the former prime minister’s arch nemesis.

“Yes, tomorrow we will have a press conference together with Tun Mahathir at 3.30pm.

“Let’s wait for tomorrow’s press conference to see what is being offered officially,” Nurul Izzah told a press conference at the party headquarters in Petaling Jaya today.

This was in response to a question on Mahathir’s proposal to set up a core group against the leadership of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Mahathir, Kit Siang meet on ‘national issues’

DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang said today he had met with former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad on national issues and they were able to find encouraging developments in solving the problems the country was facing.

This comes amidst speculation that following his exit from Umno yesterday, Mahathir may now champion a movement to oust Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

“I have met and discussed with Mahathir the current national situation, as well as with Zaid Ibrahim on his March 27 initiative.

“Both of these are encouraging developments to find a solution to the national cul de sac,” Lim said in his speech at a retreat for DAP councillors in Selangor this afternoon.

Without elaborating, he said the party would support all efforts to ‘Save Malaysia’ as opposed to campaigns to just ‘Save Najib” or ‘Save Umno’.

All eyes on Dr if he’ll lead anti- campaign

When Dr Mahathir Mohamad quit Umno yesterday, all eyes focused on whether he will lead a campaign against Prime Minister Abdul Razak in cooperation with the opposition, and possibly even civil society joining in.

If everything goes on smoothly for Mahathir and the opposition, political commentator Josh Hong expects, in the next general election two years down the road, a coalition or alliance that matches the ruling BN to be established.

Several conditions are needed to strengthen the anti-Najib campaign so that it can weaken the BN led by Najib, Hong said.

These conditions include both Mahathir and opposition ironing out their terms for co-operation, plus other heavyweight leaders in Umno and BN supporting their efforts.

MAHATHIR MEETS PKR, AMANAH & PAS LEADERS: NO SIGN OF PRO-NAJIB HADI & DAP

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has rejected a proposal to set up a new party following his decision to leave Umno today, saying that the country already has too many political parties.

According to former Umno leader Tamrin Ghafar, who met Dr Mahathir earlier today before he announced his decision to quit the ruling party, the former prime minister felt that a new party would not help their struggle in any way.

“No need, there are already too many parties.

“The break-up of Umno resulted in PAS, Tengku Razaleigh left Umno and formed Semangat 46, Anwar set up PKR, and Amanah is a splinter of PAS,” Dr Mahathir told Tamrin, four Amanah MPs and one PKR lawmaker who met him in Putrajaya today.

They are Datuk Dr Mujahid Rawa (Parit Buntar MP), Dr Hatta Ramli (Kuala Krai), Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (Kota Raja), Mohamed Hanipa Maidin (Sepang) and PKR MP for Batu Chua Tian Chang.

In the meeting, Dr Mahathir told them that he had gotten together 40 influential leaders of the country and would prepare a public memorandum to be presented to the Conference of Rulers.

Recently, Dr Mahathir met two senior PAS leaders at his home in Country Heights, Selangor.

The meeting was held at the request of Dr Mahathir, who had wished to meet PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man Also at the meeting was PAS elections director Datuk Mustafa Ali -.. TMI

UMNO CRACKS IN TWO – EXODUS FROM ‘PARTY NAJIB’ LIKELY: Grassroot leaders to decide tonight

The Coalition of Branch Chiefs Malaysia (GKCM), a group of Umno branch leaders demanding party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s resignation, will hold an emergency meeting tonight to decide whether to remain in the party or leave, following the departure of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad .

GKCM vice-president Rushdan Mohamed said the news of Dr Mahathir quitting the party was serious and reflected the political situation in the country.

“We had a closed door meeting with Dr Mahathir a while ago and he assured us that he will always be with us although he has left ‘Party Najib’.

“It is very sad that we have reached this state that the man who built this country has made ​​a decision to leave the party.”

Dr M wants to form core group, tells Muhyiddin to quit via

He says the core group will comprise leaders from across the political divide.

PUTRAJAYA: Dr Mahathir Mohamad has mooted the formation of a “core group”, comprising leaders from all across the political divide wishing to see the country free from Prime Minister Najib Razak’s grasp.

Mahathir, who today announced his resignation from Umno, or as he called it “Najib party”, said the next step would be for all those who shared similar goals of ousting Najib to stand united.

“People are voicing the same opinion on different occasions, separately, and people are confused.

“We need to have a core group with a single objective.

“So if anyone wants to consult or object (to matters related to Najib), they can do so with this group which will also represent citizens who want to get rid of him,” he added at a press conference at the Perdana Leadership Foundation here today.

When asked if he would be the one leading the group, the former premier said: “I am not leading, but I will be one of the members.”

Mahathir also expressed hope that suspended Umno Deputy President Muhyiddin Yassin would follow suit and leave the ruling party to join the core group.

Free Malaysia Today

Mahathir quit the party claiming that Umno was now serving its president, Najib Razak.

“All the institutions of constitutional democracy had been violated to an unprecedented level and the mother of all financial scandals has broken loose with the perpetrators going about with absolute impunity.

“The fundamental principles of governance such as accountability and transparency have been turned upside down. Never in the history of our country has so much damage been wrought by so few.

“As a result, the citizens are paying a heavy price for the crimes of corruption and the abuse of power in Putrajaya,” Azmin, who is also Selangor Menteri Besar, claimed.

He called upon all Malaysians, regardless of political affiliation, race, creed or religion, to seize the moment and bring about real and effective change.

PETALING JAYA: The ramifications of former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad leaving Umno have yet to be understood, PKR Deputy President Mohamed Azmin Ali said today.

“Nevertheless, there is no doubt they will be far-reaching and will have a long-term impact on our political landscape.

“We are witnessing a sea change in Malaysian politics. The old walls of division built upon years of politicking are finally collapsing.

“The announcement today by Tun Mahathir, who has been instrumental in bringing Umno to the pinnacle of power and success, means that he has finally turned his back on his party.”

Dr Mahathir: Umno should be voted out, but…

Umno should be voted out of power if continues to back Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, said former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“The party should be voted out of power.

“But the opposition doesn’t have the majority,” Mahathir said when asked if Umno should be given the boot.

Dr refuses to apologise for current situation

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has refused to admit nor apologise for allegedly laying the foundations that allowed the current political crisis surrounding Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to occur.

“Tell me what I did,” Mahathir asked while dening criticism that he among others undermined the judiciary.

“I don’t accept this accusation that i undermined the judiciary.

“The judiciary during my time could even find Umno illegal,” Mahathir said.

He added that this would not be possible now, alleging Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali would not allow the case to go to court.

The episode in which Mahathir was said to have undermined the judiciary took place in 1988 after Umno was declared illegal by the courts.

This, along with several other decisions made by the courts which did not favour the government, prompted Mahathir to amend the constitution to limit the judiciary’s powers.

Retweeted Firdaus Abdullah (): The UMNO now stands for Untuk Mohd Najib Only

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mengumumkan keputusan beliau serta isteri Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali untuk keluar meninggalkan Umno pada satu sidang akhbar sebentar tadi.

Bekas Presiden Umno selama lebih dua dekad sejak tahun 1981 dan Perdana Menteri Malaysia dari 1981 – 2003 keluar Umno kerana parti itu telah hilang prinsip dan menyimpang dari matlamat penubuhan.

Keputusan Dr Mahathir ini  menunjukan dengan jelas bahawa beliau lebih mementingkan nasib  rakyat dan negara daripada sebuah parti politik yang telah menyimpang jauh dari perjuangan asal dan sesat.

Ini jelas satu permulaan baru dan bukannya titik noktah dalam perjuangan untuk menyelamatkan negara tercinta dari pengkhianat dan kuncu-kuncunya.

Perjuangan kita belum selesai.

Khairuddin also quits, likens Umno to a corpse

Following in the footsteps of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Khairuddin Abu Hassan has also decided to quit Umno on a macabre note.

Likening Umno to a corpse, the former Batu Kawan Umno division number two said the ruling party is fated to dwell in the realm of the dead (alam barzakh) forever.

Citing the Islamic burial rites, Khairuddin said Umno is a corpse which has been given its ritual bath, wrapped in a burial shroud and lowered into the grave.

“I am officially declaring to leave Umno with immediate effect. From this moment onwards, I am no longer a member of the Bukit Tambun Umno branch or Batu Kawan Umno division.

“I have lost faith in the leadership who are headed towards destroying the party,” he said.
