The bonus in Mahathir’s plan is a slot for son Mukhriz

Regardless how the Pakatan presidential council decides, Mahathir’s detractors and doubters have got it right on one point and are now proclaiming to everyone what ultimately is the 94-year-old’s objective – and that is about having the window to be able to Mukhriz somewhere into the equation to be deputy prime minister 2 in a country where there is no provision even for a deputy PM

Malaysia’s ‘Malay-first but multiracial’ winning formula in politics faces test

Arguably, sticking to the Malay-led multiracial formula remains, for now, the best approach to governing Malaysia. However, politicians must not lose sight of the merit-based multicultural idealism upheld by many young Malaysians.

A letter to Dr Mahathir

Our questions are:

Is it the end of the road for Mahathir?

Malaysia’s grand old man is used to having his way. Everyone has seen how he can damage those who do not do what he wants. He was never aggressive, he did not raise his voice even though we know he would not back down. We are not sure what he will do but this is the chance to make a fresh start. It is time for Mahathir to support Anwar.
