Tun Dr. Mahathir: The Government is absolute failure & everyone is thinking for their own political career

Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said this morning that the last 100 days is a disaster, “The Government is not responding to the rakyat (message). The Government is in denial”. He added, “There is no Government now. Everyone is just anxious in their own political future”.

“The Government is absolute failure! They resolve everything by giving money”, as he gave the examples of RM billions extended to Sabah and Sarawak whenever PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi met their leaders and also the unprecedented ex-gratia payments made to the sacked Judges. He said this at the media conference after the launching Dr. Salleh Buang’s book “Smart Growth” in Perdana Leadership Foundation this morning.

“To spend money, there must be provisions. Now the Government is giving away money secretly”, in reference to the ex-gratia payments, when ask where did the money is coming from. “When you do anything in secret, (there is) a lot of things to hide”.

“The PM says something, the Cabinet says something, the Ministers says something else. Then there’s ‘flip-flop’ decisions!”, responding to the question on de facto Law Minsiter Dato’ Zaid Ibrahim’s proposal for law reforms, announced the day he was listed in the Cabinet after the 8 March General Elections.”A dinner is given to back his proposal (for Zaid Ibrahim’s Judicial reforms) and he had the PM announced the ex-gratia payments (where else the Cabinet already decided there will be no apology to Tun Salleh Abas and the five sacked Judges)”.

When asked about DAP Chairman’s move to motion on Raja Petra’s statutory declaration based on “reliable source”,  at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday, “They are not really interested in Justice. They are not really interested in solving the crime. It’s a political agenda. This is an opportunity they seize to run down someone”.

Last night, former Supreme Court Justice Tan Sri Azmi Kamaruddin, who was suspended for three months during Tun Salleh Abas’s tribunal period appeared on TV 1. He was asked whether he was ready to appear on TV and tell his story “Yes I am. But don’t have to call me. They can call anyone else, including other Judges. Some of them can give contradictory opinion”. He then elaborated on Justice Ian Chin’s inconsistency statements on the “Veiled threat”, “Today, Ian Chin said ‘I dropped hints here and there’”. “I hear ‘hints’ that he is a corrupt Judge, but that is only a ‘hint’”. He also said he will ask for  Judicial Review for decisions already made in court, responding to the question on V K Lingam’s intention after the tribunal convened.

“I am guilty as ‘Judge’ (charge)”, adding sarcastically which drew laughter from the Press in the PLF conference room.

The former Prime Minister also elaborated on nation’s financial standing, “Petronas has a lot of money. In 2006, they made RM 86 billion. The Goverment supposed to have a lot of money. On one hand The Government is freely distributing money and yet they claim they have deficit”, and explained that the country’s saving ratio is high, which is 40% of the GDP.
