DAP jointly funds effort to topple Mahathir, Anwar lacks numbers
THE THIRD FORCE
The DAP is said to be jointly funding a mass-scale effort led by Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim to buy the support of as many Members of Parliament as possible towards ousting Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Several other MPs who were promised funds by tycoons linked to the DAP are playing it both ends against the middle to see which side is more powerful and has more money to offer.
Almost half of the MPs that handed written commitments to Anwar prepared retractions as backup in case they change their minds once it become apparent to them that Anwar does not stand a chance.
Two very senior UMNO MPs are also in on the conspiracy, with one of them having agreed to second a motion of no confidence against Mahathir in case it is popped up by Anwar or his men.
