My Sinchew/ Mahathir

Of Merdeka and Mahathir

On October 31, 2003, we bade adieu Mahathir's 22 years of autocratic rule. Thanks to his tramping of human rights, intervention of the judiciary, and outright cronyism, today our children have to pay the price to some extent for his iniquities.


Behind Mahathir's apology

So, this whole thing actually works behind a very simple logic. It doesn't matter whether he admits his mistakes or apologizes. The important thing is why this apology has been tendered after all these years.


Mahathir's cheap apology

Ironically, given the confrontation between Mahathir and PM Najib, the former PM's action two decades ago has done the incumbent a huge favor today.


The prognosis of Mahathir's new party

A political party with such a narrow-minded objective can hardly go far. Moreover, there isn't actually much room now for another new entity to grow into a political party of any respectable size and influences.


A new Umno?

To displace Umno, one must never backtrack the old way Umno has trodden for seven decades. Moreover, does this new, junior Umno ever have what it takes to bring down the Big One?


Mahathir and his racist party

Mahathir is never an idealist but very much a pragmatist himself, a label which under certain context, I would say, is more derogatory than complimentary.


New party to be registered soon: Muhyiddin

Muhyiddin says in a Facebook post that he will soon apply to the Registry of Societies for the establishment of a new political party.


Nov 7 hearing of Najib's application to strike out Mahathir's suit

The High Court here today set Nov 7 to hear Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's application to strike out the 'misconduct' lawsuit against him by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and two others in regard to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)'s strategic development fund.


Mahathir's dilemma and his 'retribution'

Mahathir repeatedly preyed on such balancing mechanisms to greedily expand his power scope, creating an infinitely powerful ruling machinery, only to discover the gravity of the problem after bowing out and later confronting the sitting government.


High Court dismisses Mahathir's bid to cross examine Najib

The High Court today dismissed former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and two others' application to cross-examine Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak over his supporting affidavit in a suit relating to misconduct of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
