DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang will quit politics if Dr Mahathir Mohamad fails to hand over the prime minister’s post to Anwar Ibrahim ahead of the 15th general election.

Lim said this was his wager with acting Umno president Mohamad Hasan who recently cast doubt on the agreement that Dr Mahathir would hand over power to Anwar as agreed by all Pakatan Harapan parties.

  • LKS -- a good play !!!! Now the Mohammad Hasan boy has to live up to your challenge. If not he is a coward and balless to be an effective opposition leader.Similar traits in all the Umno leaders to date. Mere talks and no substance. Do not be surprised you will have a another unknown hero wannabe to in for to take up your challenge. Typical coward play to divert the heat. If they talk too much somemore than show hand with Mahatir to throw the challenge.

  • I trust Tun Mahathir more than Mohamad Hasan because people who have knowledge, don't predict. Those who predict, don't have the true knowledge. Sadly to note a person like the status of Mohamad Hasan, who claimed to have worked with Tun for a long period, could now cast doubt on the personal integrity of Tun? I hope Hasan will accept the said wager with LKS if he has the confidence with his prediction?
