Mahfuz: Anti-Mukhriz SDs worth not more than ‘toilet paper’

Following Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s meeting with Kedah state Regency Council members yesterday, Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar said any statutory declarations (SDs) presented in support of urgings to remove Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir are worth nothing more than “toilet paper”.
“Any SDs from Kedah Umno assemblypersons presented to show that Mukhriz no longer enjoys majority support are an insult to Tuanku Sultan (Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah).
“The SDs are worth nothing more than ‘toilet paper’ because they were obtained through undemocratic means, as alleged by Kota Seputih state assemblyperson (Abu Hassan Sarif),” said Mahfuz in a statement.
Abu Hassan was quoted by The Malaysian Insider last week as having said that he nearly fell into the ocean while running away from being “chased” to obtain “something”.
While Abu Hassan declined to reveal the real reason behind the incident, the same report quoted sources who said 19 state assemblypersons have signed SDs to show a loss of support for Mukhriz.
“If the SDs were accepted to remove Mukhriz as MB, this means the new government that will be set up is a ‘puppet government’, with no political morals to administer Kedah.
“That government is only qualified to administer and manage a toilet,” said Mahfuz, adding that Abu Hassan’s admission only serves to confirm his suspicions on the legitimacy of the SDs.
It was previously reported that two MCA Kedah state assemblypersons had denied signing the SDs, despite sources claiming otherwise.
Yesterday, Najib said his meeting with the Regency Council went smoothly and the list of names proposed as Mukhriz’s successor had been handed over and not refused by the palace.
However, he did not disclose the list and said Mukhriz would stay as Kedah menteri besar and state Umno liaison chief until further notice.
The Kedah state legislative assembly has 36 assemblypersons - 21 from BN, and the remaining 15 from PAS, PKR, DAP, and Parti Amanah Negara. -Mkini
