KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 — Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali joined today Opposition parties PAS and Umno in calling for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to serve out his full term as the prime minister.
Lauding PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s endorsement on behalf of the Islamist party and Umno, Azmin said he has consistently called for Dr Mahathir to be given all five years of his mandate to rebuild Malaysia.
He also added that the two Opposition parties’ endorsement of Dr Mahathir did not mean an end to their political differences with the ruling Pakatan Harapan, saying that this could continue without harming the larger population.
“The leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir is required to ensure the stability, continuity and consistency of government policies to drive investment as well as create jobs and prosperity for all.
“I believe that political stability will build up the country's fundamentals and integrity including the concept of 'shared prosperity' that will bring Malaysia back to being an Asian Tiger,” he said in a statement today.
He said Malaysians voted in the previous general election for institutional reforms that would only be possible if there was stability in the government.
Azmin also expressed his belief that PAS and Umno’s professed support for the leadership of Dr Mahathir would usher in a new era of bipartisanship and build on the collaboration that allowed Malaysia to lower the voting age from 21 to 18.
On Saturday, Hadi said the PAS-Umno alliance was in favour of Dr Mahathir completing his full term as prime minister.
hmmm, time to eff others besides .....
Thus Azmin Ali has shown his true colours vis-a-vis Anwar Ibrahim becoming the next PM.
Even by tokking kok about an Old Man, already semi-nyanyiok, carrying on as PM until he is 97 years old, Azmin Ali has:
(a) declared war against his old mentor and party leader Anwar,
(b) reneged on a PKR deal with Pakatan (as testified by Lim KS who assures everyone Mahathir will hand over to Anwar),
(c) severed his umbilical cord to PKR,
(d) demonstrated his complete allegiance to Mahathir (after all his uncle) and Parti Pribumi, and
(e) even found space to embrace his old matey PAS and Mothership UMNO in another tok-kok spew about bipartisanship, implying indirectly the DAP (PAS & UMNO bete noire) can go to blaze,and also Lim KS to go eff himself with the latter's Ah Pek assurance of a cordial Mahathir-Anwar handover.
Azmin's old matey
Azmin's older old matey
Azmin's erstwhile matey
To re-summarise, Azmin Ali has told (a) Anwar and (b) PKR as well as DAP and (c) Lim KS to go to Eff.
I wonder whether PKR will still allow such a treacherous renegade to remain in the party?
