Ali Rustam wonders who Dr M wants as Najib’s successor

Former Malacca CM says he is keen to know as former prime minister has not named anyone yet.
KUALA LUMPUR: Dr Mahathir Mohamad should name the person who should succeed Prime Minister Najib Razak if he wants the latter to step down, former Malacca Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam said.
The senator pointed out that till today, Mahathir had not named anyone to replace Najib.
He wondered if the former PM would name sacked Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang, or his son, former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir.
“We want to know as Najib obtained the support of the party and the people in the last general election,” he told a press conference at Plaza Sentral here today.
The former Umno vice-president also poured cold water on the Citizens’ Declaration, an initiative spearheaded by Mahathir that also saw the participation of several Opposition leaders.
Ali said those involved in the movement had their own agenda and interests which negated any efforts to topple Najib.
“Mahathir has his objectives, so does DAP’s Lim Kit Siang,” he said.
The Citizens’ Declaration, launched earlier in March, saw Mahathir, politicians from across the divide, NGOs and civil society join forces to call for Najib’s resignation and institutional reforms.
