Flip - Flopped On A Number of Issues, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad Is Now A Liability To The Opposition Pact - Vell Paari


Press Statement
Datuk Seri S. Vell Paari

9 July 2017

Vell Paari : Flip - flopped on a number of issues, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is now a liability to the opposition pact

1. I refer to the recent statement made by Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department who had reminded opposition leader, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that Anwar Ibrahim was sacked during Dr. Mahathir's tenure as Prime Minister of Malaysia. I totally agree with what has been said by Datuk Seri Azalina and would like to remind the opposition supporters that Dr. Mahathir is a serial U - turn specialist whom is now a liability to the opposition pact.

2. Just to recap, on the 6th of July 2017, opposition leader Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, in a remarkable U - turn, issued a statement from London where he confirmed that he will support Anwar Ibrahim. The man that he once sacked and imprisoned on charges of sodomy to be Prime Minister of Malaysia.

3. The main objective of supporting Anwar Ibrahim to become Prime Minister is to ensure that Dr. Mahathir will be able to unseat current Prime Minister Datuk Seri Haji Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak who was democratically voted in by the rakyat. However, less than 48 hours of issuing the statement, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has now made another U - turn by denying he had supported Anwar Ibrahim to be the next Prime Minister, as previously reported by British daily, The Guardian.

4. Dr. Mahathir has now flip - flopped on a number of issues and this in turn have made him the butt of jokes in Malaysia's political circles. In fact, due to his constant U - turns, it can be safely concluded that Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is a liability to the opposition party. Since he joined the opposition, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad have further eroded the influence of the opposition pact where each party seems to be fighting one another because of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

5.
Let me remind the opposition supporters that since 1997, Dr. Mahathir has consistently and continuously attacked Anwar Ibrahim. In an interview with CNN on 4th September 1999, Dr. Mahathir had said that Anwar Ibrahim was unsuitable to be Prime Minister. The reason given was wide - ranging starting from Anwar Ibrahim had abused his position as Deputy Prime Minister, corruption charges and also due to his moral conduct. In fact, it was during Dr. Mahathir's tenure that Anwar Ibrahim was sacked and put behind bars as what was mentioned by Datuk Seri Azalina previously.

6. Another major scandal that involved Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was the Anwar Ibrahim "blackeye" incident on 30th September 1998. At that time, in an interview with Bernama, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad had ridiculously suggested that the injuries sustained by Anwar Ibrahim - revealed may have been self-inflicted. This was later proven to be a lie and demonstrated that Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is a liar even as far as 20 years ago.

7. Finally, World renowned magazine The Diplomat, in one of its article also blasted the opposition pact and admitted that the Barisan Nasional government might be even in a better position to win the next General Election (GE) because of the cracks and incompetency of the opposition pact. Add Dr. Mahathir Mohamad into the equation, the opposition seems even more hopeless coming into the next GE.
