Finally, Dr Mahathir breaks silence over his meeting with the King, thus calling into question Raja Petra Kamarudin’s claims.

1. Dr Mahathir said that he and the ruler had a long discussion when he submitted the 1.2 million signatures of the Citizens’ Declaration. This puts to the lie RPK’s claim that there were only 45 signatures.

Raja Petra Kamarudin: Mahathir brought only 45 signatures. How does RPK know?

2. Mahathir claimed that the ruler did not question the legitimacy of the declaration, nor state that it was an unconstitutional act.

How does Raja Petra Kamarudin know that the Agong questioned Mahathir on the 1.4 million signatures?

Responding to questions on this, the former premier said he and the ruler had a long discussion when he submitted the 1.2 million signatures of the Citizens’ Declaration calling for action against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

“He (the Agong) questioned me about provisions of the law. In the end, I could not convince him… He (the Agong) didn’t say anything, he just said that he is not prepared,” he told reporters.

Mahathir refused to elaborate on what the ruler said as it was mentioned in confidence, but reiterated that the Agong declined to heed their request.

“What we requested can’t be implemented… maybe he thinks he has no power,” he added.

Asked if the Agong had advised him regarding his conduct, Mahathir replied: “No, no advice. He did not tell me to shut-up or anything like that.”

Mahathir claimed that the ruler did not question the legitimacy of the declaration, nor state that it was an unconstitutional act.

The former premier also dismissed Najib’s allegation that he acted beyond the law.
