Dr Mahathir: Terminated as Petronas Advisor. Proton next?

12 March 2016

The office of Petronas adviser is a prestigious post reserved only for a former prime minister. Dr Mahathir was appointed in 2003. The third Prime Minister, Tun Hussein Onn, was the adviser before Dr Mahathir.

The adviser received an allowance of between RM12,000 (S$4,046.67) and RM16,000 a month, which would probably be small change for a man of Dr Mahathir’s stature.

However, he also has a secretary and support staff who help with his duties at his futuristic office on the 86th floor.

Even the Petronas board meetings are held on 85th floor.

Dr M deserves Petronas boot, minister tells Twitter protesters

KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 ― Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan took to Twitter to defend Putrajaya’s decision yesterday to remove Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as Petronas advisor, telling followers that the move was appropriate given the former prime minister’s current campaign against the administration.

In a series of replies, Abdul Rahman also criticised Dr Mahathir’s about-turn in his support for the government, pointing out that when the latter helmed the administration, he was shown loyalty by those in Umno.

“Under the present circumstances, his position as Petronas Adviser is clearly untenable,” the Umno supreme councillor said after tweeting a Bernama flash on Dr Mahathir’s termination from Petronas.

“He can’t have the cake and eat it too,” he said in another posting.

To one follower who accused him of failing to understand Dr Mahathir, Abdul Rahman said: “To the contrary. We all in Umno are way too familiar with his SOP, inside out.”

Dr Mahathir should no longer hold any position related to the Government since he was “no longer supporting the current Government”, said the Prime Minister’s Office.

The statement added that Dr Mahathir’s launch of the “Citizen’s Declaration” was aimed at toppling the “democratically-elected Government” led by current Prime Minister Najib Razak, and was against the law and the Federal Constitution.
