Two nuts for Maddy

TMI - To forge ahead, Dr Mahathir must exorcise ghosts of the past, say analysts (extracts):

THE ghosts of Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s 22 years as prime minister must first be addressed before he can successfully convince voters Pakatan Harapan (PH) is qualified and able to take over the country, say analysts.

From criticisms he ruled with an iron fist, to the firing of his popular deputy Anwar Ibrahim in 1998, Dr Mahathir has been attempting to put the controversies of his time in power to rest.

Political observers have said special care has been taken by Dr Mahathir to address his sacking of Anwar, because the 92-year-old is aware he needs the backing of Anwar’s PKR party.

“Issues of the past will never be resolved, but when it was agreed he would be the chairman of PH, the first thing he said in his speech was to thank Anwar’s family for accepting him,” said Institut Darul Ehsan deputy chairman Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman

MM Online - Former IGP: Sacking a DPM is ‘not like plucking coconuts’ (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 — Former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Mohd Noor denied that the sacking of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the deputy prime minister in 1998 was due to police interference, as alleged by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

In an Utusan Malaysia report today, Abdul Rahim called Dr Mahathir’s statement “baffling” as the police have no legal power to sack a politician.

“I don’t know why he said that and what he was thinking. Police do not have any legal power to dismiss anyone,” he told Utusan Malaysia.

Abdul Rahim was referring to a March 12 Sin Chew Daily report in which Dr Mahathir said police had prompted him to sack and arrest Anwar for corrupt practices and sodomy.

In the interview with the Chinese daily, Dr Mahathir was quoted as saying he “had no choice” but to take action against Anwar after police presented all the evidence to him.

Abdul Rahim said the removal of a deputy prime minister from office was a complicated process that requires justification from the prime minister and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s consent.

“The appointment and dismissal of a deputy prime minister is not like plucking coconuts; it was all proposed by the prime minister at that time.

“The police are only a government department whose powers are subject to the Police Force Commission as stipulated in the Federal Constitution which outlines the duties of the police,” he reportedly said.

ready to help mahathir
one nut for exorcising his 'ghosts'
one nut for plucking as if it's anwar (to prove igp wrong)


  1. did mahathir said the police fire anwar?

    1. Dia suruh polis tangkap Anwar.. impliedly dia suruh fire Anwar la bro..

  2. Mahathir is nuts. If the polis wanna fire somebody, they'll fill 'em with bullets.

  3. Now, now...Rahim Noor is now contradicting Polis Raja DiMalaysia's constantly repeated claim that they are independent and act free of political interference from the Ruling Regime

    That guy has reason to abhor Mahathir, because he hung him out to dry after the Black Eye incident instead of whitewashing him he had expected Mahathir to do...

    Now we know the truth tha tmost of PDRM's heavy handed actions are politically motivated and politically directed.
