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).


Which way is national politics headed to?

The national politics must be brought back to the right track soonest so that we can once again concentrate on revitalizing the national economy, containing the threats of terrorism and tackling the issue of deteriorating administrative efficiency, among many others.


Expediency

Such expedient collaboration or alliance is not unknown, but for an opposition camp that upholds lofty aspirations and cherishes the ideals of democracy, teaming up with the wrong partner would only erode its political morality further.


The political future of the Malays

The by-elections in Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar are decisive battlegrounds for various Malay political forces: Umno, PAS, PKR to the more recent Amanah and Mahathir's movement. The more divisive the Malay society, the more people will look to Umno for guidance.


Proton and patriotism

Patriotism is something absolutely abstract that could never be translated into some realistic gains. It is totally impractical to tie the sale of Proton to patriotism alone.


Where's the shadow PM?

Without a shadow PM, the anti-Najib campaign will not strike a chord with the general public in particular the mainstream Malay society which prefers to sit on the fence and watch before jumping into action.


Mahathir's comments to topple PM may be seditious: Nur Jazlan

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's statement to do things 'outside the box' to topple Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak can be considered seditious, says Home Deputy Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed.


A few points to ponder

Will this country be a better place without Umno? Can Umno really bring about the changes? If yes, why no changes have been instituted so far? If we were to continue allowing Umno to decide the choice of prime minister, how can we be sure the old mistakes will not be repeated?
