According to an article in TheStar, our dearest PM said that:
We worked so hard to build and transform the nation and we cannot allow any trouble to take place as it would destroy unity.
Wow! I’m surprised that this could come from the person who allowed a clamp-down on the largest unity party of the year, which cut across all race and religion, with water-cannons, tear-gas and baton-charges. This is the person who sees 1-Malaysia as a threat to national security.
Also, from the same article:
I don’t want to be the Prime Minister for one moment if I do not have the support of the people.
Rich, coming from the only PM that we have who has not gotten a mandate from the people. Our PM from the last general election was Pak Lah and not Najib who inherited the position when Pak Lah opted to leave office. He has yet to prove that the people actually want him.
He barely made it past the post in his constituency with a narrow 241 vote majority in the 1999 general elections. Maybe our PM might consider calling for a snap election to see just how much support he has from the people?
