Buying Time

Govt Will Answer To Dr Mahathir's Criticisms - Bernama, 24th Oct 2006
  • Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Tuesday that the government will respond to former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's allegations against the government and the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
  • The deputy prime minister said Abdullah would give a "long and detailed" answer to all the questions and clarifications sought by his predecessor.
  • "I have spoken to Pak Lah (Abdullah) and he is prepared to answer the issues raised by Tun Dr Mahathir in great detail."The answers will be given at a meeting or in's up to the prime minister," Najib told reporters at the Aidilfitri open house of the prime minister and cabinet ministers at the Putra World Trade Centre here.
  • However, Abdullah needed time to answer all the latest allegations by Dr Mahathir because they were only raised last Sunday, he added.

When a leader claims that he is "in control", why wasn't he able to give an immediate response to people's enquiry? Why does he need to "prepare" answers while everything should be on his fingertips?

Is this another typical response, just like the previous ASLI's case? Every Malaysian who is not senile, would recall that Najib still owe us an answer on Bumiputera's equity debate. Buying your time again? I still have doubts, Najib. When are you showing us the figures?
