My Sinchew/ Mahathir

The handshake

But on the flip side of the game, opposition supporters might leave in frustration with Mahathir's participation, and those already supporting Mahathir might just back off seeing him courting the opposition.


Salleh raps Mahathir for 'ultimate betrayal'

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad committed the ultimate betrayal of Malaysia when he requested foreign powers to intervene and topple the government that was elected by Malaysians, said Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak.


'Historic handshake' will backfire: Nur Jazlan

Nur Jazlan says the "historic handshake" between Mahathir and Anwar will eventually backfire, as many disillusioned PKR members will leave the party en masse.


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.

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
