Intellasia East Asia News – They just wanted to change the PM, not govern the country, says Dr M

Without naming any political party, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has slammed a group trying to change the prime minister instead of wanting to govern the country.

He was commenting on former Umno Supreme Council member Tajuddin Abdul Rahman’s claim yesterday that Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi pushed to get the party’s MPs to sign statutory declarations (SDs) backing opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim as the prime minister.

Mahathir said Tajuddin’s revelation proved that there were many issues which the public were kept in the dark about.

“There was a pact working to have a new prime minister,” he said in a Berita Harian report.

“That is what they were working towards… not to govern the country.”

At a press conference yesterday, Tajuddin, who was dropped from the Umno Supreme Council last week, said that while he did not want to sign the SD in support of Anwar, he was “forced” to.

The Pasir Salak MP also accused Zahid of making unilateral decisions, and alleged that 130 of the 191 Umno division heads wanted Zahid to step down as Umno president in 2020.
