Tun Mahathir : Give Najib time and space

TANJONG KARANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak should be given time and space to strengthen racial solidarity and boost the country’s economic development, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He added it would not be easy for Najib to resolve problems unless the people gave him their undivided support.

“If he (Najib) does anything bad, then you can criticise, but if he does something good, we should support him.

“When he gets strong support, he can discharge his duty more effectively,” said the former Prime Minister.

On another matter, Dr Mahathir said the Malays must unite again to regain their political power because although they form 60% of the population, the race had been divided into three.

“Mathematically, Umno only represented 20% of the Malays. The same was also true of PAS and Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

“20% for each Malay party is considered weak,” he said, adding the Malays had lost their direction. — Bernama
