Dr M: Some want me to stay for 22 years, but I'm stepping down after Apec

'I will be 95 in a few months. Mana boleh tahan?'

A - Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has reiterated that he will step down after the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Kuala Lumpur in November. Responding to questions that he purportedly has the support of 138 MPs to remain in office until the end of his term, the premier quipped he has heard that some want him to stay on for another two decades. "I'm 94, in a few months I'll be 95. Mana boleh tahan? (how can I work that long?)," he told reporters in Langkawi today. On his meeting with Anwar Ibrahim in Putrajaya yesterday, Mahathir said the PKR president provided an accurate account of what transpired in his media statement later. "I promised to step down after the Apec summit. I will keep my promise. I'm not involved in 'kegiatan lain' (other activities)," he said. It is understood that the"other activities" referred to the attempt to round up MPs to support him for a full term. Following their meeting, Anwar confirmed that there is an attempt to keep Mahathir in power involving “PAS, a group from Umno and a small number from PKR.” He also said the transition of power between Mahathir and him would be finalised at next Friday's Pakatan Harapan leadership council meeting. Previously, Sarawak Report alleged that MPs “have been pressured to fly in from all corners to Kuala Lumpur” to ink a statutory declaration (SD) in support of Mahathir. Apart from Umno, PAS and Bersatu lawmakers, the article claimed PKR MPs aligned to Anwar's estranged deputy Azmin Ali had also inked the document. However, Zuraida Kamaruddin, who is one of Azmin's staunchest supporters in PKR, denied the report. In 2018, Mahathir signed an agreement to hand over the reins to Anwar as part of an internal Harapan deal. However, no date was set. Since assuming the role of prime minister in May 2018, Mahathir had dithered on a transition date, sometimes suggesting that it would take place after"two years" or more. In December, Mahathir told Read more: malaysiakini.com

APEC won't held in Malaysia ? No APEC leaders or any leaders from any country in the world will ever visit Malaysia under the present government leadership. Many more don't want you to stay. Step down as soon as possible. tak boleh percaya. master of delay macam najib syahredzan He does not want to state a specific date coz that will make him a lame duck PM. Smart.

We want u to step down now la Even 22 days is long enough jangan risau Tun nanti kami tanam sekali dengan kerusi tu !!!!! sorry for you, Tun. You should take a rest. Majority wants you to step down. Earlier the better. An Agong can rule for 5 years max. Duli Yang Maha Mulia Ibn Syed Siti Tun Mahathir has ruled for 22 years. His reign is similar to almost 5 Agongs. The Supreme Commander of Malaysia.

Which one is it jezlai Tahun 2025 pun after apec Hidup Tun M.

Am I the only one who wants him to stày for another 25 years? Omg, not only is he testing DSAI, PH, the Rakyat & Malaysia but now wants to do it with God? Old Man, you're really pushing your luck - cash out now & begone. Infact, do what Jho Low or Sirul did; run away & seek asylum. We can assure you no one will waste any more time over you.

Menyampah Why APEC! What so special about it? Can’t you still attend representing Malaysia?

Media must be given freedom, says Dr WeeKUALA LUMPUR: The media must be given the freedom to disseminate informative and professional reports to the public, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong. Freedom comes with responsibility Why didn’t u think abt this when you were part of the crony? Remember The Edge? Who was minister back then?

Zahid collecting SDs in support of Dr Mahathir, says Lokman | The Malaysian InsightThe controversial former Umno member says the statutory declarations are now with the prime minister.

S'wak Report claims MPs ink SD backing Dr M, Anwar says 'not officially informed'It alleges that Umno, PAS, Bersatu and PKR lawmakers are signing the document for Mahathir to serve until GE15. Dr Mahathir has done the maths. I did too. Anwar doesn’t have the votes to be PM. Period. Harapan supporters must put Harapan & Msia Baru above any politicians. Is the SD valid at all?! LOL! Bring it to parliament, and the speaker would just strike it out as rubbish. The act of inking the SD is the joke of the new decade. Those who did so must have gone cuckoo. Only PH's presidential council has the final say. Like as though anwaribrahim didn't know about the SD. The SD is about them rejecting anwaribrahim - Why would they ask Anwar Ibrahim sign it? And will Anwar Ibrahim and his running dogs in Parliament sign an SD endorsing Mahathir chedetofficial to remain as PM?
