Mukhriz, Muhyiddin in Mahathir, Anwar proxy war
Another Brick in the Wall
The interviews of Dato Mukhriz with Nikkei Asia Review and Dato Husam Musa with Sinar Harian opened a new front for the silent war between Tun Dr Mahathir vs Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim for the coveted position of the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Dato Seri Azmin’s ambition could be considered to have found a conclusive ending.
It could be Anwar’s camp ploy to take the succession narrative from himself to the choice of the next Deputy Prime Minister.
On Thursday July 11th, Nikkei Asia Review published their interview with Mukhriz with the title: Mahathir’s son ready to inherit Malaysia’s political legacy.
Mukhriz took a swing at Anwar thus indicating he is in the running against Anwar.
A former Minister from Pak Lah’s day remarked, “It’s finally out in the open.”
It means this blog is right to say Mukhriz is not competent for the highest position in the country, but was wrong to not believe his father has plan for Mukhriz to be a Dato Najib to Tun Abdul Razak.
The former PMO officers and those close to former PM Najib correctly read Mukhriz as Mahathir’s heir apparent.
The PPBM insider that tipped off neither Anwar nor Azmin is Mahathir’s choice as successor is now proven right.
Whether it was planned such or a change of plan from the Four Point Hotel, Sandakan, it will only be clear in later days.
In the meanwhile, AMANAH Vice Presiden, Dato Husam Musa had suggested Tan Sri Muhyiddin as running mate of Deputy Prime Minister to Anwar.
