Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has denied today knowledge about a purported bipartisan statutory declaration (SD) to support Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as claimed by the Clare Rewcastle Brown owned and run Sarawak Report.

However, I find that hard to believe given that Clare is currently in cahoots with Anwar and is peddling half lies and half truths, presumably at the PKR president’s behest.

According to the Clare Rewcastle Brown owned and run propaganda portal, the deal is to amass as many Statutory Declarations as possible to “support the continuance of 95 year old Dr Mahathir Mohamad as Prime Minister until the next election.”

However, Najib and Rosmah are not in any way part of a deal which Clare claims will save their necks, though some level of negotiation is said to have gone on in the past involving Najib and camp Mahathir but fell through when Mahathir conditioned that Najib needed to admit his guilt and go to jail.


Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has denied today knowledge about a purported bipartisan statutory declaration (SD) to support Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as claimed by the Clare Rewcastle Brown owned and run Sarawak Report.

According to a news portal, the PKR president said he has yet to be informed about the purported move to block him from becoming the next prime minister before the next general election.

Earlier today, I wrote:

Sarawak Report has pulled a fast one by alleging that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor are orchestrating a backdoor deal together with Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, Datuk Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

There has also never been an urgent attempt on Mahathir’s side to amass any number of SDs. As a matter of fact, camp Mahathir has long been in possession of a significant number of SDs that indicate support en massefor his continued leadership.

Despite having claimed that talks of a new Muslim Majority unity coalition dubbed “Pakatan Nasional” is hogwash, Lim Guan Eng constantly harps on it and even warned The Star against publishing ‘fake news’ related to it.

Anwar too seems obsessed with PAS’ plan to motion a vote of confidence for Mahathir’s leadership, though in this case, I am in agreement with the PKR president, albeit for different reasons.

Anwar claims PAS is tabling the motion to prevent him from becoming Prime Minister. My position is that such a vote makes no sense as Mahathir was mandated to hold the post of Prime Minister.

On Monday, I wrote:

The mandate was constitutionally delivered post GE14 (General Election 14) by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong following a decision by the majority of parliamentarians to turn him into Prime Minister.

Thus, it is not necessary for the mandate to be repeated as the Federal Constitution of Malaysia does not warrant the need to do so.

Parliamentarians, however, can decide to challenge the mandate by moving a vote of no confidence. In this case, it would make more sense for PAS to challenge Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to move the vote if indeed Anwar does command majority support.

A failed “vote of confidence” is not tantamount to it being a “vote of no confidence.” This is considering that since a vote of no confidence is not constitutionally required or recognised, the results mean nothing.

The fact that it is not constitutionally recognised or necessary would also affect the vote itself as some parliamentarians may deliberately not vote just to air their grouses.

The same parliamentarians, however, would take a “vote of no confidence” more seriously as they know the outcome would have a definitive impact on the position of Prime Minister.
