Within 3 years … From last year or today?

Another Brick in the Wall

After the video of Tun Dr Mahathir hesitant body language went viral yesterday, The Star today reported a CNBC interview of Mahathir saying he will step down within 3 years.

Having Monday morning blues.

In between one doctor appointment to another doctor for mother at a hospital, the question that pops up is when do the 3 years begin?

If it is from last year, Mahathir would pass the premiership presumably to Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim within the latest 2 years time.

However, if the three years begin now, then Mahathir could end up finishing the full term.

At the last PPBM party convention, there were calls for Mahathir to finish his term. Tan Sri Rais Yatim recently said there was no agreed date signed between Mahathir and Anwar.

It is not convenient to do a thorough analysis of the various news report now, but it does not take line by line analysis and looking through the sequences of events to reiterate Mahathir is not handing power to Anwar.
