MAHATHIRISM: of Najib, Muhyiddin, Zaid, Mukhriz and Malaysiakini


Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin does not believe Mahathirism will return when Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak becomes the Prime Minister next year.


Former de facto Law Minister Senator Datuk Zaid Ibrahim’s commented in the Sunday Star that Najib’s impending rise to the Umno presidency would mark the return of Mahathirism.


Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir said Zaid’s comments only showed he was anti-Mahathir.

He said Zaid revealed his anti-Mahathir streak when he called on Cabinet ministers to seek forgiveness from the judges who had been sacked or suspended in the 1988 judicial crisis.

Mukhriz said Zaid had asked the Cabinet to do so even before he took his oath of office as minister.


"There are several former members of Parliment and experts whose advice he should seek to run the country", the former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir told Bernama after addressing a Malaysian Youth Seminar at the University of Melbourne.

"But Najib must not try to do everything himself. He must get proper advice from the right people"


For slightly different view on Mahathir's comment, Malaysiakini through Wong Choon Mei mentioned about shivers sent across the country in here .
