SEMBANG SELASA: PITA POLITIK (4)

AHMAD SHABERY ON TUN MAHATHIR

Ahmad Shabery said during the former prime minister's leadership, many regulations were imposed, including a resolution that there should be no contest for the president and deputy president's posts.

"There was no contest (for the president's and deputy president's posts) after 1987 but now he is saying it is undemocratic. The Malays have not forgotten all these things but maybe Dr Mahathir has forgotten.

"I am sad to bring up these things but the openness in Pak Lah's era should not be taken advantage of."

At one time, he said, Umno supreme council members couldn't even be challenged in their divisions.

Division chiefs in Kelantan also couldn't be opposed when Dr Mahathir was the state Umno liaison head, he said.
He added that in the 1999 general election, the anger of the grassroots was aimed at Dr Mahathir's leadership. However, he did not step down.

He (also) said more Malay voters rejected Umno and Barisan Nasional in the 1999 general election compared with the March 8 elections.

Ahmad Shabery also said he was disappointed with Dr Mahathir's comments as during his leadership, many Umno leaders were detained under the Internal Security Act as they were seen as threats to national security. In actual fact, they were threats to his leadership. -- Bernama
