Mahathir: Umno must go, not just Najib

mahathir-najib-umnoIt is no longer enough to remove Najib Razak from power, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today. Umno itself must be defeated.

The former premier, speaking at a ceramah in Kota Bharu last night, said he was disappointed with Umno’s condition.

Umno leaders were no longer proper leaders; they feared to speak up and would only follow orders, he told the Sinar Harian newspaper.

“This party (Umno) has to be defeated and we need a new party that is stronger than Umno. I loved Umno, that was why I was with Umno for a long time,” he said.

Dr Mahathir has spearheaded a campaign for more than a year with the focus on ousting Najib Razak as Umno president and prime minister.

He left Umno earlier this year and has founded Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, which is awaiting registration, to form a united opposition front to contest at the next general election against the Barisan Nasional.

Responding to criticisms of his association with the DAP in the new alliance, Dr Mahathir said Najib’s father, Tun Abdul Razak, had also forged an alliance with opposition parties.

Tun Razak had formed the Barisan Nasional in 1973 after bringing opposition parties Gerakan and PAS together with Umno, MCA and MIC, which had formed the Alliance party.

“Some people have asked me, how can I work with (DAP’s) Lim Kit Siang when I fiercely condemned him in the past and he did the same to me. But in our efforts to achieve success, we have to always be smart,” he said, pointing out that Tun Razak had also approached the DAP (which rejected the offer).

He said he was using the same strategy.

  2. Why can’t Dr Mahathir work with DAP? Tun Razak worked with the opposition after 1969. Now, Najib is working with PAS?

    What has Najib done except loot the country and brought shame and disgrace to the Malay race and Islam. He ins internationally recognized as the billion RM man who lied when he said that some Arabs donated the monies to his account. Now the DOJ report is clear the monies came from 1MDB to MO1. Still the paid mercenaries continue to spread disinformation and lies to protect their corrupted paymaster. Mahathir did not swindle rayat’s money into his bank account. The reason at this age mahathir need to do this because Najib blatantly took rayat’s money. The rayat must support Mahathir as what he does now is good for the nation.
