Former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad tries to set the record straight on why he resigned as PM during the Sheraton Move when the Yang di-Pertuan Agong asked him not to and before a conclusive vote was carried out, and discusses why he believes in an all-Malay party rather than be pro-multiracial, Pejuang’s role as kingmaker in the next general election and his old score with Anwar Ibrahim.

“..sets the record straight on why he resigned as PM during the Sheraton Move..” – to be fair to that evil ex-dictator I should listen to the recording.
But I refuse to as i believe he is trying to hoodwink the rakyat again.
I don’t know there’s any record to set straight?
Mahathir resigned because he did not want to honor the pledge to hand over the PM’s post to Anwar after 2 years.
Period!!

His resignation allowed the backdoor govt. to crawl into Putrajaya.
His resignation dashed the hope for change among the rakyat who gave their votes to PH in 2018.
For his betrayal, then and during his 22 years reign of terror, I hope he will rot in hell for eternity.
