Najib Not Aware Of Abdullah-Mahathir 'Gentlemen's Agreement'! Do You Believe That?
"I don't know about that (gentlemen's agreement). I am committed to support the prime minister and be loyal to the prime minister," the Deputy Prime Minister told reporters after opening a seminar for Felda mosque officials.
Najib said his focus at the moment was on the soon-to-be-held general election and "I want to ensure the Barisan Nasional wins big."
Pressed further whether he knew about the gentlemen's agreement, Najib said: "I don't know. You have to ask the parties concerned."
He was asked to comment on the so-called "gentlemen's agreement" between Abdullah and Dr Mahathir as claimed by the former prime minister that Abdullah would serve as prime minister for only one term before passing the baton to Najib.
Dr Mahathir said yesterday that since Abdullah was older than Najib, he should be prime minister for one term and then Najib should be able to take over.
Dr Mahathir claimed the agreement was made in 2003 when he handed over the leadership to Abdullah. Dr Mahathir, however, admitted that he had no way of proving it. (Bernama)
****** My how innocent Najib is!!! This whole 'agreement' talk has all the ingredients of a sandiwara orchestrated by powerful people to pave the way for the DPM to take over the premiership. It is the beginning of a power grab and the PM should watch his steps very, very carefully lest he finds the ground from under him cut off.
