MAHATHIR IS RESPONSBILE FOR KEEPING TAIB ALIVE FOR 30+ YEARS. ALL STARTED WITH HIM.
HE WANTED TAIB TO DO THE SAME THING LIKE HIM, TO NAME THE WRONG SUCCESSOR?
LET WE THE PEOPLE TO DECIDE
Asked whether Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud should step down before or after the state election, Dr Mahathir said: “It’s up to the people of Sarawak to decide, I think they know best whether he should step down or not.”
However, Dr Mahathir said if Taib were to step down, there should be somebody to replace him, not like former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who stepped down without a good succession plan.
