Report: Rais Yatim sceptical Pejuang can last beyond Dr Mahathir’s lifetime
Parti Pejuang Tanah Air will only last within the lifetime of its chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, said Tan Sri Rais Yatim.
(MMO) – Utusan Malaysia reported the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia supreme council member as saying that Pejuang will “evaporate” once Dr Mahathir is no longer around.
“It is clear his son Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir is unable to continue his legacy, following the failure of his administration in Kedah (as its mentri besar),” he told the Malay daily.
Rais also added that Pejuang would be unable to go up against other existing parties, since it has less than 10 parliamentary seats at present.
“Bersatu has 179 divisions. They have not even reached 10. So Pejuang is very limited, and if unfortunate, the party will die in its crib.
