KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 20, 2014:

The Malaysian council of former elected representatives (Mubarak) today urged former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad Mohamad to stop the open ‘cold war’ with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Mubarak president Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman said Dr Mahathir could give his constructive criticism to Najib if it was done in a manner of a “family discussion” rather than criticising the Prime Minister openly.

“Mubarak is disappointed with Dr Mahathir’s open criticism on the leadership of Datuk Seri Najib Razak. The implication of this openness will affect the struggle which Tun (Dr Mahathir) himself admitted as being unfinished, especially now that it has confused members of the party and the people as a whole,” he said in a statement today.

Dr Mahathir, through his blog www.chedet.cc, said that he was forced to withdraw his support and criticise the government under the leadership of Najib after seeing that Najib’s policies and actions were not effective.

Abdul Aziz said Dr Mahathir must give the chance to Najib to continue leading the country as he had shown a good performance following the rapidly growing economy.

He said, Najib introduced the national transformation policy which encompassed the economic transformation programme, government transformation programme and political transformation programme as a bold step to enable the country to achieve the status of a fully developed nation by 2020.

“This policy and other new initiatives launched by Najib have started to show positive signs in the burgeoning economic growth and the increasing trust of foreign and local investors.

“This restructuring process is also recognised by international institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund,” he said.

Furthermore, Abdul Aziz said the international index and rating were going up while the approach of moderation and foreign policy stressing on soft diplomacy under Najib’s leadership had borne fruit as proven in the way he tackled the MH370 and MH17 tragedies.

“Don’t be panicky, the amendment is a process and it had been planned for so long even before the issues on 1MDB and the Sarawak Report had cropped up. The reason… today the abuse of the internet and social media could be due to the Sarawak Report, tomorrow there may be other blogs whose contents are sometimes wholly accepted by the readers.”

Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak stating that the proposed amendments to the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 and Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998 are not intended to curb the freedom of the people to use the social media and Internet.
