PETALING JAYA – Former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad claimed that the main reason the Pakatan’s administration ended is when Bersatu left the coalition and that his resignation is was only a “formality”.
According to Mahathir, When Bersatu left, it automatically triggered the end of Pakatan Harapan Government. When Bersatu left, all of the members of the cabinet lost their position including him as a prime minister.
The 95-year-old Langkawi MP hinted that the end of the PH administration was the brainchild of Pekan MP and former Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak who’s proposing to set up a Malay-Muslim administration with PAS.
Bersatu, by allying itself with PAS and Umno party, Najib has gained enough Malay support. Dr Mahathir also accused Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin for conspiring to oust DAP and end PH administration.
He claimed that Zainuddin work to get UMNO support him as Prime Minister, Although he opposed this move, uhyiddin supported the idea and majority of party member supported Muhyiddin
Mahathir said that he refuses to be the prime minister of Umno/PAS/Bersatu government as he would not like to work with UMNO and Najib, He felt like it would be betraying the people who supported him in the elections and working with UMNO would also mean he’s reneging on his promises to the other parties in the PH coalition. He also said that the reason why he left the party is because Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was willing to work with UMNO and PAS to gain more support.
