Berapa kali terhantuk?

The Malays have a saying “Dah terhantuk Baru nak tergadah”, which is ‘Once bitten twice shy’. However in the case of the Prolific Most (PM) Gerontocracy Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, this is way beneath him.

Mahathir’s party nominates him to be PM again

The pro-tem committee of Pejuang is reported to have unanimously nominated Dr Mahathir Mohamad to be prime minister again.

PETALING JAYA: New political party Pejuang has nominated its co-founder Dr Mahathir Mohamad for a third stint as prime minister, “to save the country” until the next general election.

The decision comes days after Mahathir had denied backing anyone or any particular individual as a candidate to replace Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister.

Mahathir’s political secretary Abu Bakar Yahya said the decision was made by Pejuang’s pro-tem committee.

“The committee members have unanimously decided that Mahathir is our candidate for prime minister to replace the current prime minister pending the next general election if the country wants to be saved,” Abu Bakar said in a Facebook post.null

Mahathir was Malaysia’s 4th prime minister, serving from 1981 to 2003, and 7th prime minister, from 2018 to February 2020.

Pejuang is an off-shoot of PPBM, and was co-founded by Mahathir and his supporters after he left PPBM in March in a dispute over the composition of the federal government.

The announcement comes a day after Mahathir submitted a fresh no-confidence motion against Muhyiddin. An earlier attempt in May did not succeed for lack of time at the Dewan Rakyat.

Several other MPs have proposed similar motions, including Mahathir’s son Mukhriz who is pro-tem Pejuang president.

Parliament is due to convene for its year-end session on Nov 2.

News of the no-confidence motion comes in the wake of an announcement by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is PKR president, that he had “formidable” support to form a new government.

However, Mahathir had said he doubted whether Anwar had the numbers in Parliament to take over as prime minister and even if he did, the country would remain in political deadlock.

On Tuesday, Mahathir denied he was backing any particular person as a candidate for prime minister.

“I was informed that I am backing one of the candidates aspiring to be the prime minister, I would like to state that I have never supported anyone as a candidate to become prime minister,” he said in a Facebook posting.


This proposition cannot at all be taken seriously, especially after the peril that Dr Mahathir’s administration as eighth prime minister brought forth to the nation.

It is obvious the Malaysian economy and status of quality of life deteriorated after Dr Mahathir established the PH Government upon winning the 14GE.

His Finance Minister and DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng cancelled the GST system, which is the most progressive tax system the nation ever had and lost RM43b annual revenue into His Majesty’s coffer.

Almost all the Cabinet Ministers under Dr Mahathir’s watch cocked up in their portfolio.

They were a bunch of incompetents with witch hunting high on the agenda instead of making it right for the nation and people.

The Government’s coffer was poorly managed that during Dr Mahathir’s stewardship, RM80b was paid by Petronas in royalties, taxes, dividends and special dividends.

Race and inter faith relations was at its lowest ebb since the formation of the nation. A perfect example is the inflammation by DAP leaders on the Sri Mahariaman Temple in USJ which resulted in a riot on 26 Nov 2018 and a fireman Muhamad Adib Adam was killed whilst on duty.

Currently, the general feeling of Malaysians are sick of over-politicking and they are just interested to have a life and continuity of livelihood, more so in the challenging global economy trying to weather through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bring back Dr Mahathir to run the nation is the last thing Malaysians should do.
