Update: Mahathir Mohammad’s son Mukriz (MP for Jerlun) is said to be staying put in UMNO as he is vying for UMNO Youth’s top post this December.
This goes to show, there are no principles here, only greed. Why ask the prime minister to resign as soon as possible?
So now that Mukriz has deserted his father, too, what now Mahathir?
Earlier, I said that it seems like UMNO MPs have made up their minds about Mahathir Mohammad, who thought he caused an earthquake when he and his wife resigned from UMNO yesterday.
Did his plan backfire instead?
His plan was to weaken present PM and UMNO president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi so bad that the man hands in his resignation A.S.A.P.
Today in Parliament, however, the opposite had happened.
Dollah only gave the Mahathir resignation issue five minutes, according to the Malaysian Insider. And all the MPs threw their support behind him. Minus Mahathir’s son Mukriz, of course. What is his stand? Still contemplating? Why not say you resign A.S.A.P?
What do you expect of UMNO MPs anyway?
In the meeting, Dollah also took the opportunity to condemn Mahathir by saying that his resignation was selfish and self-centred (putting himself above the party).
Worse still UMNO MPs are saying this move by Mahathir is going to make UMNO stronger.
Dear Lord! Isn’t that the worst news you have heard so far? What does it really take to get rid of UMNO – completely and totally?
