With the announcement that former PM Tun Mahathir Mohamad is to fight the elections in Kedah as a candidate for the opposition, tongues are wagling that the state is lost to the ruling Barisan Nasional.

The UMNO is currently heading the state with a slim majority, but with Mahathir set to be a candidate at Kubang Pasu, his old seat for decades, things might go well for its opponents.

While the party’s candidate has yet to be finalised, the PPBM chairman’s name is, unsurprisingly, among those shortlisted, said Free Malaysia Today.

Kubang Pasu PPBM division chief Mohd Hairy Md Saad said this was because the 93-year-old was a former MP of the area and still much loved by the community.

He said sentiment towards Mahathir was still favourable, even after the former prime minister left Umno and formed his own party which is now part of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) opposition pact.

“It is not just Kubang Pasu folk and PPBM supporters who still love Mahathir. Those from Umno still do as well.”

Umno has been a dominant party in the constituency which had only two representatives so far, Mahathir and his replacement, Mohd Johari Baharum.

Mahathir, a Kedah native, held the Kubang Pasu seat, which has over 65,000 registered voters, for seven terms until 2004.

He was the prime minister from 1981 to 2003.

The opposition party said a majority of Umno branches in Kubang Pasu have failed to hold their meetings due to a lack of quorum.

The only hiccup for Mahathir’s party Bersatu in Kedah is the Islamists PAS. They will contest against the Umno and the Bersatu.

  1. double headed double tongue politician. will go to bed with anyone so long as he can regain power. hope the malaysian chinese wake up and deny him. else they will be the first in his line of fire!

  2. The CIA is out to bring pro-China Najib Umno down & replaced with its stooge Anwar which Mahatir brought down with sodomy charge.

    Now that Mahatir son is sacked from UMNO adter failed to dislodge Najib, he wanted to collaborate with his arched enemy Anwar to put his son back on power.

    If stupid Msia Chinese let PAS-lead opposition win, get ready for another ethnic cleansing riots, Sariah law, economic crisis that purge all China business. Just look at Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Nepal… long list of countries that CIA regime change to contain China.

    Facebook is tool for instigating color revolution, ply with fake news.

    All Spore newspapers are publishing Reuters fake news using Sporean/Malaysian paid journalist name, but editor is always angmo CIA. See how they hyping Russophobe & sinophobe, fake Hague court for South China Seas trial. Sporean are fed West BS by PAP.

  3. Tun M cause so much problems during his 22 yrs and till now. Najib has made good relationships with singapore, philippines, china and even USA. During his time Tun always “cari gaduh”. and make many U-Turns.. It’s time he reflect on his failures instead of critic others, He even accuse and destroyed Anwar of SODOMY calling him an anal sex maniac & divided the nation because of personal agenda. Not forgetting Mahathir and Anwar hide the 32.5 billion in 1990s Forex (now worth 100+ billion) from the people of Malaysia.

    Despite a short time, Najib has created MRT, Pan Borneo Highway, new ports, High speed rail, TN50, billions of investments, cash handouts, low cost housing, new merdeka tower, East Coast RAIL, subsidized hajj, more funding for chinese sch and indian temples, created 2.2 million jobs, digital free trade zone, 6.2% economy growth, highest tourism numbers, Indian blueprint, saving Proton, removal of tolls and many more.. This is despite Malaysia surviving 2 MAS Air Disasters and Air-Asia crash all in one year 2014. plus opposition committing economic sabotage of the country. wHAT has the opposition done to improve the lives of Malaysians apart from instigating the rakyat to hate the govt?

  4. For those ignorant people out there…. Mahathir wants to topple Najib because he refuse to help his son Mukhriz to be Prime Minister. Mukhriz lost the UMNO Youth chief elections twice to KJ and lost the vice presidency of UMNO election. Mahathir is unhappy Najib did not do all he can to help his son Mukhriz (e.g endorsement, stopping other candidates from contesting). What Mahathir is doing, is un-democratic and corrupt.Till today nobody in the world can provide a single evidence Najib did any wrong as it is all lies from the opposition. Be smart, not stupid you people!
