Dr Mahathir affirmed that Umno is wholly corrupt

Dr M says Umno will lose power because of corruption

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 – Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said Umno will lose the next General Election if nothing is done to weed out corruption in the party.

According to Mahathir, after the next GE defeat there will be no Umno Prime Minister, minister and other positions. No more contracts, APs and licenses. Everyone in Umno will suffer, and be insulted by others. And that is the end of Umno.

Mahathir must be extremely concern about the massive corruption of the leaders and the rank and files within Umno as can be observed in his latest blog posting.

“I know a lot of money is being used. It used to be only the division Youth heads that received the money. But this had resulted in other office bearers of the movement not cooperating. But now everyone can get it and the return is very substantial for the bribers,” said Dr Mahathir.

“The winners can become lawmakers, Exco members, ministers, deputy ministers, parliamentary secretary, chairman of GLCs and receive contracts worth millions of ringgit,” he added.

Mahathir predicted that corruption in Umno will get worse by March 2009 when the General Assembly begins.

“Looking at the positions being contested, every delegate can receive up to RM20,000,” said Dr Mahathir.

He said that the Barisan Nasional's victory in the 2004 General Election was because the people believed that the new leadership was cleaner than the previous administration, but Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi had failed to walk the talk.

“Between 2004 and 2008, they could see that Abdullah's administration was full of corruption. They noticed the role played by his family members and cronies and also Cabinet members. What they saw convinced them that the administration is not clean. The result can be seen in the 12th General Election,” said Dr Mahathir.

Our Mahathir is extremely worried and concern with the massive corruption that had become epidemic within the Umno system. However, it can be traced to its original initiator and promoter; but let's leave that analysis behind us and move forward towards a better society.

Hahaha...Mahatiu Mahatiu, don't you realised that you were the father of all corruption during your premiership,and all these shit in Umno were created by you ?

And this apply to the nation as well, so Mahatiu just STFU !

Jefus said...

who coined the term - MONEY POLITICS? All those years being at the helm, stories of money changing hands in the UMNO washroom by the bagfuls, all forgotten?

It did not bloom like mushrooms overnight, TDM, you allowed it to happen. It took root a long time before this.

Seems to me, TDM as very selective memory. Very convenient.

Morning Mav,

Tun should be very worried coz his son is just climbing up the UMNO ladders. But I agree with his statement that come next GE, BN-UMNO will be wipe out IF BN-UMNO do not change. But changes requires sacrifice, so the MOTHER OF ALL QUESTIONS : Is BN-UMNO willing to loose all, all their warlords sacrifice their cushy environment so that BN-UMNO will survive and the "rakyat" will also get to reap the rewards of their hard earn money?
To be optimistic and open minded, I sincerely hope so, to me whether it's BN or PR running the country is not the issue, it's who can run it better, which party is all for the betterment of the people and the country and not their own pocket first, that is most important.
But being a realistic person, the chances of BN-UMNO giving up their "cushy environment" is rather slim. Therefore, I am now just waiting for next GE to come or PR's miracle to happen, other than that I think everyone should now pay more attention to working hard and finding ways to sustain ourselves as I don't see the current government offering any help to cushion the current global financial meltdown as I strongly believe come Christmas or early part of next year, a lot of people will be hard hit and the impact will be "more" hard felt.

Benda ni berasal daripada zaman dia memerintah dulu. Dulu dia tak ambil peduli pun pasal semua ni, segalanya didiamkan. Dia lebih kepada pembangunan fizikal tapi dalam hal2 begini dia tidak melakukan apa2 pun. Sekadar menutup dan mendiamkan masalah ini saja. Orang yang sekarang ni bertungkus lumus buat benda yang dia tak buat dulu.

Don't blame everything on Mahatir Kutty. Yes his first corrupt act was to change his race for political power and he also never did anything to stop Rafidah and others, etc. He also has to explain his role in the way the Yamtuan of Negri was elected..all those allegations of millions paid to ensure he 'right' royal was made the Yamtuan.

The others in his cabinet including Samy and those in the various states like Toyo the Toyol also have something to answer for.

Being out in the cold has caused part of Mahathir Kutty's brain to creak into acion. Now is the time to acknowledge your Indian father, especially as the Govt of India is exploring he moon. Maybe Mahathir Kutty can be put on their next mission so he can live on the moon, away from all this corrupt UMNO types.

Hidup Mahathir Kutty, Bapak Perindustrian Malaysia anak lelaki India!.

Umno? what UMNO?
The UMNO that I knew died when
it was declared null and void.
That was the UMNO with all its
faults and misgivings, stood for
Malay rights and also the other
races rights.

Now this is not UMNO. just a bunch of
Malay opportunists using race and
religion to influence the simple
folks. Their real objectives are
money and power !!

Those years were easily forgotten.

Ya, global crisis should be the priority.

Moo,

The old man is not; but, maybe, is.
