Mahathir has made it quite clear he doesn't think Anwar is right person to lead Malaysia: Analyst

The roller-coaster relationship between Mahathir Mohamad and Anwar Ibrahim has spanned nearly 40 years, and has played a big part in shaping Malaysia's political landscape. Professor James Chin, director of the Asia Institute at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, shared his thoughts on Dr Mahathir's resignation as Prime Minister, as well as the power transition in Malaysia.

    The real reason Dr. Mahathir didn't think Anwar would be the next PM because Anwar knew so much about his dark secret especially his wealth . If Anwar become PM, he might screw him back.

    Rather than carrying out the manifesto on which he was elected, Dr Mahathir took his eye off the ball and also in the process failed to guard his back from members of his own party who were in fact renegades of the corrupt party. Mahathir started straying away into international politics eg picking on India in its internal politics and thereby losing massive income from India from sale of palm oil. He then started trying to head an Islamic group of countries which incl Pakistan the great holder of minority human rights etc. This ended in failure. Having been elected by nearly all the races of Malaysia he strayed into the lobby of people who wanted to give rights to one predominant race. He is the victim of the two-faced politics he was playing. By his own actions he had outlived his usefulness to Malaysia.

    PH fell because of their undoing. So don't blame others for their downfall. The infighting and backstabbing were among themselves. The PM resigned on his own accord because of the power struggle between themselves. Back door government? This is karma. Remember the time when Anwar told that 30 MPs were jumping to Pakatan Rakyat to form a new government on September 16, 2008? Wasn't that going to be a back door government too? Only Karpal Singh was against this coup and he made it clear to Guan Eng and Kit Siang that he was against the immoral idea. But both these two unscrupulous leaders supported Anwar's idea of bringing down PM Pak Lah and forming a new government through the back door which was known as Anwar's Move then. What goes around, comes around. A lesson learned. Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you. An immoral LGBT leader is not fit to lead Malaysia. Period.

    Yes, dats very right... Mahathir had no intentions of handing over PMship to Anwar. Dats y all this is happening, its almost two years since PH won n also d promise of handover. If mahathir meant wht he said, so y resign n cause chaos??? Could've just handed over AS PROMISED n all this would have never happened. What we have now is a chaotic situation of a plan dat backfired.

    Dr Mahathir was never sincere in handing over power to Anwar. It all began in 1998 when Anwar during an UMNO general assembly suggested the government will pursue corruption cases even if a leader retires or resign. From then on there trumped up sodomy charges against Anwar. The cases went on for sometime and he was charged for interfering with police investigations. He went to jail. When Najib was the PM Anwar was charged again for sodomy. Anwar was sent to jail again. It was during this time Dr Mahathir met Anwar while he was still serving sentence. Anwar gave his blessings to Dr Mahathir to be the PM should Pakatan Harapan coalition wins the General Elections. God willing Pakatan Harapan won and Dr Mahathir became the 7th PM. All the the candidates in Pakatan Harapan stood on PKR tickets. Perhaps Dr Mahathir have has forgotten that. I strongly believe Dr Mahathir wanted to get rid of Najib and destroy Pakatan Harapan when the mission is accomplished. Dr Mahathir has nothing to lose.

    The majority of Malaysians know who Anwar Ibrahim really is. Which is why Malaysians are rejecting Anwar as prime minister. Pakatan Harapan Party won in the last election because of the Malaysian confidence in Mahathir and not Anwar. After won the election, Anwar start to play dirty by urging Mahathir to give up his prime minister position. Due to the overwhelming urge, Mahathir had to resign as prime minister in order to suppress Anwar's greed to become prime minister in the wrong direction. When Mahathir resigned, the decision of the prime minister was handed to the king. This is called a Mahathir Game 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
