  • Lets be fair lah, 5 years term means half for each. 2.5 years each. Means PM transition power should happen in November 2020. Simple as that, Dr M is trying to be fair but don't try to instigate anything otherwise. Dr M is also a fighter like Anwar, if u over do, he is upset and have evey capability to make things difficult for PKR or Anwar for that matter.

    • DR M is a bad PM, he is old, believes that Malays are supreme in Malaysia-meaning Chinese and Indians are worthless passengers-he is an Islamist who does not respect other religions, he is taking Malaysia backwards-Mahathir is the Mugabe, Suharto,Marcos and Idi Amin all in one. You must be kidding that we would want this man to continue as PM. Malaysian of all races would prefer not to have PH in government than a diluted government with Mahathir and Hussein Onn's family with cromies pulling the strings. Anwar must force the issues-millions of Malays support Anwar. people on the ground dont like what they see in UMNO.

  • As long as Mukhriz is left out of the government together with Hishamuddin-Malaysia will be a better place. We dont want dynasties. We want young,vibrant,resilient, open-minded,educated Malays, Chinese and Indians to be in government-not Rafidah Aziz type or any other old frogs.
