Najib Claims Signed SD to Back New Government

Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak asserted that he was among federal lawmakers who made statutory declarations supporting Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to head up a new coalition government.


“Yes, I’ve signed it (the SD), but conditionally,” he was quoted as saying.

However, he did not state what conditions were attached to the declarations.

Speculation is that the new coalition will be called Perikatan Nasional or Pakatan Nasional.

Najib’s admission supports previous speculation that a group of federal lawmakers aligned to Dr Mahathir have signed similar declarations in a bid to have him stay on as PM and prevent PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from succeeding him.
