The title looks quite the same as MalaysiaKini’s one… which MK’s report as follows:
In a rare instance, Dr Mahathir Mohamad appeared to be on the same page with his arch-nemesis Anwar Ibrahim.
I personally it is manipulated.. because, the Star reports read like this:
PETALING JAYA: During his time as prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he had no problems with the palace when he submitted one name for the mentri besar’s post.
“I only submitted one name because we had no problem with the Sultans,” he told reporters after launching a book by Anas Zubedy.
Dr Mahathir was responding to remarks by Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who said PKR was only following Umno’s convention of submitting one name to the palace for the Selangor Mentri Besar post.
Dr Mahathir also hit out at the Opposition, saying the people and the palace will not accept someone who will take orders from others or a “remote-controlled MB.”
“You cannot annoy people and expect the person to co-operate with you. Not just with the Sultan but everyone is busy bickering with everybody,” he said.
On another matter, Dr Mahathir reiterated that he never asked for the resignation of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“I only said that if they decide to appoint me as Prime Minister, I will resign. I am not supporting anybody,” he said.
The elaboration is different.
Yes, Dr M back then may submitted one name, but he has NO PROBLEM with the Sultan.
And that makes the difference between Dr M and what DS Anwar is doing.
In other simple words to rakyat marhaen, if you are okay with your boss, I suppose if you submit that is satisfactory, usually it is okay with your boss. However, if you are not in good terms with your boss, it is harder ain’t it?
(Dalam perkataan mudah, realiti anda di tempat kerja – masa ok dengan bos, oklah segalanya. Akan tetapi, kalau dah tak ok dengan bos, cubalah macam mana sekalipun, kan susah)
Question on the street: How long this MB Selangor drama gonna continue?
