Rubbing the Royals the wrong way

Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad isn’t going down well with the monarchs when the former got another tongue-lashing by HRH Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Sultan Iskandar of Johor for his critical remark against ‘Bangsa Johor’ as “Parochialism might disunite Malaysians”.

Tun Dr. Mahathir also did not achieve what he hoped to get from meeting His Majesty Seri Paduka Baganda Yang DiPertuan Agong in Langkawi last week.

Malaysiakini story:

Najib: Agong told me of Mahathir meet

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak revealed that he was fully aware of what took place during Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) adviser Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s audience with the Agong last week.

“I was informed by the Agong that he received an audience from the Bersatu adviser at Istana Bukit Malut in Langkawi last week,” said the PM in a statement today.

However, Najib explained that the meeting did not quite exactly go down the route that the ex-premier probably wanted.

“In the meeting His Highness took notice of the matter that was brought up by Mahathir. However, the Agong explained to Mahathir that he cannot be involved in what Bersatu is doing.

“This is as the declaration made by Bersatu was not in accordance with the constitution. Any action should be in line with accepted practices via the parliament and electoral system for the rakyat to make their decision,” related Najib’s statement further.

While it was not mentioned in his statement, the ‘declaration’ that the PM said the Agong refused to be involved in likely refers to the Save Malaysia Citizen’s Declaration started by Mahathir early this year, which the ex-PM claimed garnered over 1.3 million signatures.

In the declaration which Mahathir wanted to submit to the Agong, but failed to do so previously, the former prime minister along with civil society activists, NGO leaders, Umno rebels and opposition leaders urged Najib to step down over the multitudes of scandal since he took office, in particular the 1MDB saga.

Najib had denied all wrong doing and accused Mahathir and the others of trying to circumvent democracy and bring down a duly elected democratic leader.

Malaysiakini had previously reported a source confirming Mahathir’s audience with the Agong, thought no details were forthcoming on what actually transpired during the meeting.

In fact, Tun Dr. Mahathir was told off right into his face that His Majesty should not be involved in politics, especially his.

Najib: King has told Dr M he won’t interfere in political matters

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak says Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah explained to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that he could not interfere in the efforts made by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM).

The Prime Minister said he had been informed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong about the audience granted by the King to Dr Mahathir, who is also PPBM advisor, at Istana Bukit Malut, Langkawi, last week.

“At the meeting, the King had taken note of the issues raised by Tun Dr Mahathir.

“However, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong also explained to Tun Dr Mahathir that he could not interfere in the efforts made by PPBM,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Najib said that this was because the declaration made by PPBM did not comply with the Constitution and any action should be according to the normal practice, which is through Parliament and the election system. – Bernama

In his desperation to oust Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak after so many failed political stunts, the Fifth UMNO President tried to draw the sentiments by  attempting indirectly drawing the monarchs into his political gambit.

A month ago he apologised for removing the power of assent to the monarchs thirty three years when he was the Prime Minister, on the excuse that what ever the Executive brought upon HRHs and His Majesty, it is of the will of the people.

This include new bills passed in State Assemblies and Parliament and would automatically comes into force even without the royal assent after thirty days.

his Majesty the King wouldn't accommodate Tun Dr. Mahathir at arms with the Opposition, particularly his nemesis for 49 years Lim Kit Siang and DAP

His Majesty the King wouldn’t accommodate Tun Dr. Mahathir, especially when the latter is at arms with the Opposition, particularly his nemesis for 49 years Lim Kit Siang and DAP

It is unlikely that His Majesty SPB YDP Agong XVI would be drawn into Tun Dr. Mahathir’s politics, especially the formation of his new party Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is seen as splitting the Malays.

The former Prime Minister of 22 years formed Primbumi Bersatu with other dissenters with the intention to break UMNO’s political support from the Malays.

Tun Dr. Mahathir has resorted to exaggeration, manipulation, lies, slander and even asking foreign intervention to oust Prime Minister Najib, on top of teaming up with his life long nemesis in the likes of Lim Kit Siang and Teresa Kok of DAP.

  1. Maybe the Rakyat, especially the Malays, have no use for them anymore or they have outlived their usefulness.

    • Dr Mahathir is the Fellow who outlived his usefulness and now a menace to society.

      No other former leader within Commonwealth diverse history who retired voluntarily as the PM stirred so much trouble and generated into too much over politicking compared to Dr Mahathir.

      That is a fact!

      • So… Jho Low’s 1MDB and those tenth of Billion debt… is not a menace to 1Malaysia, including those not yet born?

        I’m very sure, if its not because of 1MDB and Jho Low, Dr.M would not have quit UMNO and demanded Najib’s ouster.

        After-all, he had kept his mouth shut, when Najib solicited Razak Baginda as middleman in Gomen’s submarine purchase.
        In-fact, when RPK swore that SD, implying that Rosmah was at the scene where Altantuya was C4ed… Dr.M was still on Najib’s side. As a matter of fact, insist Najib, not Muhyiddin, to replace Pak Lah.

        When Deepak Carpet got an interest-free loan of RM30 million, from Bank Rakyat… Dr.M kept quiet too.

        I guess… it must be Najib’s penchant for soliciting dubious middleman, sort of… broke the camel’s or Dr.M’s back.

        Wonder why Pro-Jibs are very scared, even to mention Jho Low’s name?
        Even Auditor/Attorney General. MACC, IGP and Bank Negara, dare not mention his name or call him for an ‘interview’. Why?
