There is something seriously wrong with those in the DAP-led Pakatan opposition camp when Tun Mahathir (their self proclaimed ‘top dog’) asked PAS to state their choice for Prime Minister.
Is Tun Mahathir’s memory so short that Pakatan Harapan has just only recently produced his name (Tun Mahathir’s) name as their choice? Just imagine, had Tun Mahathir not run over to Lim’s Pakatan Harapan opposition desperately in search of a platform to give his son Mukhriz’ failing political career alive, Pakatan would still be ducking and dodging questions about their Prime Minister choice.
Now Tun Mahathir thinks that he can somehow back Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and PAS in the corner by forcing them to state their choice for Prime Minister. If PAS does not say who their choice is, then Tun Mahathir will say that PAS is supporting the government. Even if PAS were to provide a name, Mahathir would say that their choice is only to create another factor in a three (3) cornered fight in the 14th general election.
Not falling for Tun Mahathir’s trick, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang provides a response that Tun Mahathir knows that he cannot criticize.
TEMERLOH: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang says Allah will decide who becomes prime minister after the 14th general election (GE14).
Datuk Hadi Awang also said the following:
“We are not greedy to become leaders but want Islam to lead, save the country, save humanity, this is the core of our cause.”
Tun Mahathir should really sit back and meditate on what Datuk Hadi Awang said about not being greedy to become leaders. Even after leaving office, Mahathir has been obsessed with either trying to influence his successors or working to remove them.
Having had no luck in trying to force Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office, Mahathir has now manoeuvred his way into bed with his former Nemesis Lim Kit Siang and woke up the next morning as Lim Kit Siang’s ‘top dog’.
But when you are greedy for power, it does not matter who you make a deal with just as long as you get what you want. But having crawled into bed with comes with a price; Mahathir has to follow the marching orders of Pakatan Harapan’s real top dog; Lim Kit Siang.
So if Lim Kit Siang gets word to Mahathir to use some of his tricks to try to paint PAS in a political corner, that is what Mahathir will try to do.
But it’s myopic on Mahathir’s part that he cannot see the irony in asking PAS to state their choice for Prime Minister when Lim Kit Siang and his Pakatan opposition have only recently named him as theirs!
Mahathir should also remember what Hadi Awang said: Allah will decide who becomes prime minister after the 14th general election (GE14).
