Dr M says he wants a merit-based government, not party-based

PETALING JAYA: Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says he wants a Cabinet built of capable individuals that does not have to cleave to party affiliations.

In televised address to the nation on Wednesday (Feb 26), he also urged support for this proposal. “Right or wrong, my opinion is that politics and party politics have to be put aside for the time being. “If this is allowed, I will try to have an administration that is not side with any party but only the national interest will be prioritised, ” he said. More to come This is his address in full: 1. Terlebih dahulu izinkan saya memohon maaf kepada semua rakyat Malaysia kerana keadaan politik Negara yang agak kucar-kacir dan mungkin menimbulkan keresahan dikalangan tuan-tuan dan puan-puan. 2. Seperti umum ketahui, saya telah menyerah surat peletakan jawatan sebagai Perdana Menteri ke-7 kepada Ke bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang diPertuan Agong. 3. Walaubagaimanapun, saya telah dipanggil mengadap Yang diPertuan Agong kemudiannya, dan setelah berbincang selama lebih satu jam, Tuanku telah bersetuju menerima surat peletakan jawatan saya dan setelah itu menitah saya supaya menjadi Perdana Menteri Interim. 4. Ada banyak sebab mengapa saya meletak jawatan tetapi cukuplah saya katakan bahawa saya merasa kononnya mendapat sokongan dari semua pihak sehingga saya tidak dapat memilih pihak mana yang saya pilih. 5. Selain itu, terdapat juga tuduhan bahawa saya tidak berniat untuk melepas jawatan dan gila kuasa. 6. Maka saya letak jawatan kerana saya tidak melihat kuasa dan jawatan itu sebagai “be all and end all” adalah matlamat saya. Bagi saya kuasa dan kedudukan itu adalah “a means to an end” ataupun satu alat untuk mencapai objektif. Dan objektif kita semua tentulah untuk kebaikan negara. 7. Kerana itu saya meletak jawatan kerana bagi saya ternampak bahawa bagi orang politik yang terpenting ialah parti mana yang memerintah, sama ada yang kalah atau yang menang. 8. Sebenarnya saya telah janji akan letak jawatan untuk memberi peluang kepada Dewan Rakyat menentukan siapa yang akan mengganti saya. Jika benarlah saya masih disokong saya akan kembali. Jika tidak saya akan terima siapa sahaja yang dipilih. 9. Jadi peluang untuk menukar kepimpinan memang ada. Hanya saya berpendapat oleh kerana saya disokong oleh kedua-dua pihak, masa untuk saya letak jawatan belum tiba. 10. Saya minta diberi masa. Tetapi parti saya BERSATU memutuskan untuk keluar dari Pakatan Harapan. Ada juga ahli dari parti komponen lain yang akan keluar. Dengan perlakuan ini Kerajaan Pakatan Harapan akan gugur. 11. Kesannya jika BERSATU sokong PAS dan UMNO maka parti-parti yang kalahlah yang akan diri Kerajaan. Kerajaan ini akan didominasi oleh UMNO sebagai parti yang terbesar.12. Saya sanggup terima ahli UMNO yang keluar UMNO dan menyertai parti lain. Tetapi UMNO akan sertai Kerajaan campuran ini sebagai Parti UMNO. Ini tidak dapat diterima oleh saya. Maka terpaksalah saya letak jawatan. 13. Sebagai manusia biasa saya tidak sunyi dari melaku kesilapan. Saya pohon maaf jika peletakan jawatan oleh saya adalah salah. 14. Yang diPertuan Agong bertitah supaya saya dilantik sebagai Perdana Menteri sementara. Saya sedar apa juga yang dilakukan oleh saya sekarang akan ditentang dan ditolak oleh ramai, tetapi mungkin ada yang menyokong. Saya tidak cari untuk disukai ramai. Saya hanyalah membuat sesuatu saya anggap baik bagi negara. 15. Politik, orang politik dan parti politik terlalu utama politik sehingga lupa negara menghadapi masalah ekonomi dan kesihatan yang mengancam negara. 16. Saya berpendapat betul atau tidak, politik dan parti politik perlu diketepikan buat masa sekarang. Jika dibenar saya akan cuba adakan pemerintahan yang tidak memihak kepada mana-mana parti. Hanya kepentingan negara sahaja yang akan diutamakan. 17. Jika diizin inilah yang akan saya cuba. 18. Saya berdoa dan saya pohon kepada Allah SWT saya diberi petunjuk dalam usaha ini. Sekian, terima kasih. Read more: The Star

When u win an election, Carbinate members of the Govt have to come from ur party coz the work for the party & help convince people give them the mandate. So Sir u’re telling us that there is no competent individuals that can run the affairs of this country from ur party? ...and he is the ultimate lord .

Since the people give a chance to PH and screwed up the economy and worse than BN, why not give the old man another chance to finally make things right or a snap election Intisari PC Tun. 1. He doesn’t have majority 2. Nobody has simple majority 3. Looking for unity government 4. Wants the power to appoint cabinet & not pressured by partisan 5. He wants to stay in power & have full authority to govern with no opposition. In short - Dictatorship

Maybe because he doesn’t have enough party support? mpklang Tun M nak buat malaysia menjadi China government? Bila penipu kena tipu dengan penipu This man full of shit. mpklang Dear chedetofficial, your concept is good but can only work in my country not in Malaysia; Most of your politicians are morally bankrupt. Pls do NOT let the thieves and robbers UMNO/PAS rule the country again... otherwise all will be removing themselves from criminal charges

What is the constitution and election for? My respect Tun M. I know last year have a PM MALAYSIA team have protect me go. To KLIA . I no fly because the scammer is already standby at the airport car park., however I just want to say thank you very much for sayang TUN Dr MAHATHIR....

Agong accepts Dr M’s resignation, reappoints him as interim PM | Malay MailKUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 — The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has accepted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation earlier today as the seventh prime minister, but has now reappointed him to hold the position in the interim, Chief Secretary to the... chedetofficial please don’t leave. Here we go...a rollercoaster ride ahead for next few days... Interim makna tiada kabinet dan tidak boleh tempoh lama. Adalah baik dibubarkan parlimen

mpklang Too late to try and do this. You had a second chance, and you blew it. Again. How is the merit of his son? If the person is unable, let the people decide. Not some made up merit. Mcmlah kau ada merit sial! Saya mau ini mcm... saya ckp jalan, lu orang semua jalan, saya ckp mkn, lu orang makan.. ini baru bagus punya kerajaan

Then we hv a govt without proper opposition. PM not anwerable to any1. Then we will hv a bigger crook than Najib & bigger scandal than 1MDB. How to get merit based. Educated but proud. Young but snobbish. Minister become like a King. Lawmakers shouting like monkey in Parliament He has no rights now to say “I want”

I support u Tun..lets try Unity Gov... Too many jokers in party In short he wants to a dictator without opposition. Merit Minister can, then make them (ammend d law) only minister basic salary. Cannot hold any other post then minister. No benefits & privileges. Ministerial position is a job like all. Nothing else! No messing into judicial and legislation. Then it might work. Fly declare asset

Sudah tun

King accepts Dr M's resignation, appoints him interim premier for nowThe Yang di-Pertuan Agong has accepted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's resignation as Prime Minister. However, the King also consented for Dr Mahathir to continue running the country as interim PM while waiting for a new premier to be appointed. Read more here: This is so strange When a CEO has resigned why do you still appoint him as interim CEO ? It should be someone else altogether or someone next in line. The king is wise in rising above politics and in stabilising the political situation, to appoint Mahathir as interim PM till the political horse trading stops and hopefully things go back to normalcy, or there could be another GE wise king. the not so wise will question the appointment. but job well done sir ! chedetofficial

The most powerful independent MP Cadangan Tun M ini...saya sokong.. Tun M wanted a non party-based government. It just like our national football team whereby their best players are selected or called up from the states/clubs. I like this idea How? Is this constitutionally possible? People been bullied by politician since b4 independence!This is d right time to use ur own discretion so stay as int PM till the day u die & appoint only nonpoliticians as ur cabinet ministers, after all u r d caretaker.What matters most r d ppl.Politician juz a collateral damage

That should be the right way moving forward!! Not forever stagnant wherever it is. Y now? Establish no jumping ships law instead! Keeps everyone in check. Traitors at bay!!! Sayangimalaysiaku Merit-based means qualified brains! Can we also leave out Religious and Cultural conflicting issues from all groups Out as well? Mutual Respect should be promoted and encouraged more..

Dr M clocks in as interim PM, even as Cabinet stays empty (VIDEO) | Malay MailKUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad arrived at Perdana Putra at around 9.25am today where he began work as the interim prime minister, believed to be shortly after he met Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia leaders at home. His arrival was caught on live on video by state news agency... I also like to work alone 👍🏼

Kid minister is not merit based. Just saying la this is better! you don't need to belong to any certain party. Just serve the nation Merit based means 90% of the MPs don't qualify That's one big headache you have there Does this mean change 'first past the post'. Maybe let voters choose the PM n elected PM is free to choose capable/qualified Malaysians, not necessary MPs as ministers. Elected MPs van be the check on the PM n cabinet. Ministers focus on work, not divide w constituency work.

hidup Tun rezzasyazwani Oh god grant Tun M strength and good health. If you notice his voice seems tried yet he still doing his job and try his best to do what he could for Malaysia. Time to have strong and powerful and effective government. Not for the parties, For malaysia That's honky dory 😁 only needs party when not in power

drama king..a main actor behind the scenes...old but stilll corcky n snakey attitude..power crazy Get lost traitor i suggest all minister are from top professionals in their respective fields. enough with politicians being minister and then clueless about what they should do.

Dr Mahathir mula tugas perdana menteri interim | The Malaysian InsightBeliau dilihat memasuki Perdana Putra yang menempatkan Pejabat Perdana Menteri pada pukul 9.29 pagi.

Agreed.. this is the most needed now for 🇲🇾 Sokong How does Umno & PAS fits into this equation! All are useless and corrupted! Reading between the lines, He wants to be a DICTATOR, Absolute Power, where all his Ministers are Yes man. Sorry, this is 2020 not the same UMNO you had corrupted ! Dr M has my full support and prayers in this matter. Only the best brains should be in the cabinet. Enough of power crazed politicians.

tiniz I love this idea even more His party decided to leave PH and talked with UMNO. If UMNO is accepted en bloc (as requested by UMNO) the country will be effectively ruled by the party that had lost, because of their numbers. He couldn’t accept that, so he resigned. Fair enough to me. VERYKOO3 If done earlier, post GE 14, we won’t have flying car minister, special escort minister, minister for developer, twitter minister and disunity minister.

He creates the chaos just because he doesn't want to handover the premiership?
