PETALING JAYA: Dr Mahathir Mohamad today declared he will not agree to becoming the next prime minister “for the time being” should the opposition win the next general election.
He would however, consider the move, if it was the wish of the public themselves.
“I may be forced to reconsider,” he said on his previous refusal to become the prime minister again when asked in recent months.

cukup or not, I still can go for another couple of minutes
And two hours later, at about 9pm, Abdullah, this time with the presence of all the supreme council members, told a hastily held press conference that Mahathir was still their chief.
Wakakaka, same old same old, the sly old musang is using his same tactics again.
Nothing beats an old successful sandiwara.
