They said Dr Mahathir’s proposal for the NOC, and his willingness to head it in order to save the nation, was his desperate and final chance to lead again.

  • Mazlan, what kind of analyst are you? You are not worth your salt la. Najib is a convicted felon and he has screwed the country for billions of Ringgit in the 1MDB saga and you have the gall to suggest him being in the Unity Cabinet??? You surely must be a troll for him

  • Veteran columnist and political analyst Dr. Cheah See Kian, do you realize that Tun wants to just fix the economy which he has a track record of fixing and also the education system which is so decrepit. For instance, Tun has rightly said the school syllabus has too many periods for Agama studies which will not help a student to face the real world and stand on his two feet. He wants greater emphasis on English language usage etc... In short, we need to produce young Malaysians who will have the necessary skills and knowledge to fend for themselves and contribute to nation building.
