My comments in blue
On PM DS Najib Razak
“I did not ask him to resign. I said I will resign if I’m made the PM now. I'm too old
"I don‘t support him. I’m not supporting him anymore, that’s all.”
“You can’t win elections by giving out cash money. I didn’t do such things but we still won all the elections… better than Najib. Holding up placards saying “I love PM’ won’t win elections either.”
“When somebody does something and you think it is wrong you have the right to say so… the Malays call it menegur. There is nothing wrong in menegur. When I was Prime Minister, Rafidah (Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz) used to tell me in my face when she doesn’t like my ideas. She remained as a minister.”
Dr Mahathir criticized Najib because he doesn't want the PM to be misled by all the yes men and consultants who are all doing so with vested interests. He doesn't want Najib to be fooled again like what happened during GE13. He criticized Najib because he care for the PM and the rest of us Malaysians.
On the current state of Umno
"The divisions will be preoccupied with their own position. They don’t see the things they should be seeing, they ’re not well informed about things because if they read the newspapers, the newspapers are very shy about making criticisms, so they also will not be making any criticisms”.
Most Umno people are still finding it difficult to change their attitude. Dr Mahathir was worried that they will continue chasing after their own personal interests instead of working for the people, especially Malays and the bumiputera. If this continues, Umno will perform even worse in the next general election.
On the Selangor leadership crisis
The saving grace for Umno and BN is that Pakatan is in an even worse situation. They are over confident and arrogant, feeling that they can shove everything down the people's throat. Dr Mahathir said that's why they mess up so badly in Selangor.
On abolishing Sedition Act
Sedition Act is just the gun. It's the person who pulled the trigger who is responsible.
