“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”

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.
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.”
Clare is currently in cahoots with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and is peddling half lies and half truths, presumably at the PKR president’s behest.
In the past, TTF revealed that Mahathir already has majority support from UMNO, PPBM and PKR, as well as AMANAH, Sabah and Sarawak and is merely consolidating his position by ensuring that his majority is strong.
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.
This is what Sarawak Report wrote:
“Over the last 48 hours MPs loyal to UMNO, PAS, Bersatu and Azmin Ali have been pressured to fly in from all corners to KL to sign a so-called SD or statutory declaration to support the continuance of 95 year old Dr Mahathir as prime minister until the next election, in a direct defiance of the Harapan coalition pact to transfer power to Anwar Ibrahim.
“As to how the proposed SD will actually be used it is clear that many of the MPs who are being strong-armed into signing it are unclear. Rumours abound that if sufficient numbers are obtained the organisers intend to march themselves to the palace to attempt to get the Agong to acquiesce – an ‘effective coup’ as one angry Harapan MP described the move to Sarawak Report.”
This is a lie – there has 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 masse for his continued leadership.
As per the institution of Pakatan Nasional, Clare has more or less confirmed it by indicating that a group led by Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is behind such a move.
It is crystal clear that Azmin is in control of PKR together with Zuraida Kamaruddin and is fast proving to be a threat for Anwar.
As per Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang, the duo is said to no longer command the support of DAP Members of Parliament and State Representatives in significant numbers.
According to credible sources, these MPs and ADUNs are not in favour of Anwar and have no qualms ditching the DAP at a moment’s notice.
Clare has 101 reasons to defend Anwar and currently is engaged in a media smear campaign in his favour with a mission to topple Mahathir.
