KUALA LUMPUR — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has resumed work and seems none the worse after his nose started bleeding during a news conference this morning, his press secretary said.
Endie Shazlie Akbar also said the 94-year-old was not rushed away for medical treatment as believed earlier when the nosebleed happened midway through a press conference at the MPOB International Palm Oil Congress Exhibition here.
“He is working as usual,” Endie said in a statement.
Dr Mahathir’s escorts then interrupted the press conference and ushered the PM out. – MALAY MAIL
‘Shocked’ Muhyiddin says Pakatan must change drastically to avoid being one-term wonder
KUALA LUMPUR — Pakatan Harapan (PH) must make changes to both its strategy and execution if it intends to survive the next general election, coalition deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The Bersatu president was commenting on his party’s catastrophic lost in the Tanjung Piai by-election on Saturday, when Barisan Nasional’s (BN) MCA Datuk Seri Wee Jeck Seng won with a 15,086 majority.
“But what is important is that after the elections we have had the results. We know and we must prioritise it.
Muhyiddin said today the party will conduct a post-mortem analysis to determine if the loss was attributable to the election machinery, strategy, or Putrajaya’s policies.
Leadership issues will also come under the microscope when Bersatu meets tomorrow to prepare its presentation to the Pakatan Harapan presidential council, he said.
Muhyiddin said emphasis must be given to the coalition’s cohesiveness.
He also believed that more pro-people policy must be prioritised with a focus on economic development as it will directly benefit the B40 component.
“We know there were financial factors and so on. If we think this is the reason, we must rethink this and bring it to the finance minister to fine tune it and how we can implement it besides other issues that touches on education,” said Muhyiddin. – MALAY MAIL
