Dr Mahathir won’t support opposition, says Mukhriz

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth
executive council member Datuk
Mukhriz Mahathir said his father,
former prime minister Tun Dr
Mahathir Mohamad, would neither
oppose the government nor support the opposition.
“My father will not in any way
support the opposition. He has
fought the opposition all his life,” he said.
Mukhriz, who is also the
movement’s International Relations
and Non-Governmental Organisations
Bureau chairman, said this in
commenting on newspaper reports
today which quoted Prime Minister
Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi
as saying that there had been no
“gentlemen’s agreement” between
him and Dr Mahathir that he only
serve as Prime Minister for one term.
On Thursday, the newspapers had
reported Dr Mahathir saying as such.
He was approached by reporters
for his comments on the issue after
receiving a RM100,000 donation for
Aman Malaysia’s Gaza Humanitarian
Fund from Cheras Umno and
the Cheras Education Foundation,
which were represented by Senator
Datuk Wira Syed Ali Al-Habshee
here yesterday. – Bernama
