The revelation by former Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman including the signing of statutory declarations (SDs) shows that many things are hidden from the people, claims Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Without naming any political party, Dr Mahathir added the change of prime minister was an issue played by the parties involved to garner people’s sentiments.

“It seems that many things are happening that are hidden from the people. There is a pact to have a new prime minister, so they are playing with the issue of changing the prime minister.


“That is their real job…they are not here to govern the country,” Berita Harian reported, quoting the former premier.

The former premier was speaking to reporters outside the Attorney General’s Chambers compound in Putrajaya on Tuesday (June 28).

Dr Mahathir said this in response to Tajuddin’s tell-all press conference on Monday (June 27) whereby he claimed that Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was not qualified to lead the party.

Tajuddin said that Ahmad Zahid was a liability and needed to resign respectfully.

Tajuddin also said that Ahmad Zahid led the pact of getting Umno members to sign the SDs in 2020 to support Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to become prime minister. – The Star
