Razaleigh’s secret pact with Mahathir

TTF: On the 29th of May 2018, I wrote (in orange):

Mahathir, on the other hand, is here to clog your minds. By telling you that the country’s debt is at an unimaginable RM1 trillion, he frightened some investors off before telling his cronies to snap up the stocks they left behind at dirt cheap prices. Then, once he’s satisfied that his men have what they need, he’ll simply buoy the stock market using funds rerouted from scrapped projects.

And what will become of the stocks?

Weeks prior to the 2019 UMNO election, he’ll get his cronies to sell them off before using the surplus to buy delegates. These delegates – those aligned with Khairy Jamaluddin and Dato’ Seri Mohamed Hasan – will be offered millions to make sure Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin lose their party positions. Assuming the plan works, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah will be elected party president and told to open an invitation for Mahathir to return.

The minute that happens, both Mahathir and Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali will announce the crossover of 47 Pakatan Harapan MPs from PPBM, PKR, Warisan and Amanah into UMNO. The crossover will result in Barisan Nasional making a spectacular comeback as ruling coalition and leave Lim Kit Siang and gang foaming in the mouth. Now, if you do not believe a word I’m saying, just ask Dato’ Nik Azmi Nik Daud – Razaleigh’s nephew – if I’m telling you the truth.

Yes, something tells me he knows the truth.

So you see, Ku Li doesn’t need to tell us that he’s willing to coexist peacefully with Mahathir (see news item below). This half-past-six prince of Kelantan struck a secret deal with Mahathir two weeks ago and agreed to contest the UMNO presidency. In the interim, Mahathir is busy weakening the party by discouraging tycoons from funding its cause.

The Prime Minister hopes that delegates, deprived of funds, will become fed up and rally behind any candidate seen friendly with government. Then, once UMNO is firmly in Razaleigh’s clutches, the Prime Minister will orchestrate the crossover of Pakatan MPs and tell Ku Li to step down as party president by 2020.

But what if Ku Li refuses to step down?

Well, assuming that happens, we will get to know precisely what happened in 1983 as Mahathir revisits the Carrian-BMF scandal. And even if the Prime Minister were to let the Kelantan Prince off the hook, I will step in and tell you guys precisely why certain quarters in government were so eager to finish off Jalil Ibrahim, the BMF auditor whose body was found sprawled in a banana plantation in Hong Kong.

GUA MUSANG: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has declared a “peaceful co-existence” with his political rival Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He congratulated the latter for becoming the seventh Prime Minister and hoped that Dr Mahathir will get all the necessary support to reorganise and to ensure the smooth running of the country’s administration.

“We will assist him too,” he said after opening Gua Musang Umno division meeting and breaking fast on Saturday night.

Razaleigh, who challenged Dr Mahathir in the Umno presidential election in 1987, said it is fated for them to face each other again, this time in opposing camps.

Razaleigh, 81, who is also Gua Musang Umno chief and MP, is contemplating contesting the Umno presidency in its upcoming polls.

He stressed that he has yet to make a decision whether to contest the top Umno post, but he appreciated the support shown to him by the party grassroots.

He said he needs time to weigh various aspects before making a decision on contesting the top Umno post.

Razaleigh warned that being in the top position comes with great responsibility as Umno is now facing a challenging new environment.

Although Barisan Nasional lost in GE14, he insisted that Umno is still strong.

What is more important, he said, is to protect Article 153 of the Federal Constitution related to the rights of the Malays.

He said the people need not worry as Umno will be led wisely, adding that the voices of the Malays will continue to be heard.
