Najib has the power not to hold elections, says Mahathir

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak might not even hold the next general elections, according to Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“It is within his power to do so. Laws would not bother him,” he said in a blog posting today.
Mahathir claimed that Najib could declare a security situation or state of emergency even if there was none and could suspend the constitution.
“In this, he would have the full support of Umno and BN leaders. They all know that their leader is abusing his power.
“They all know about the investigations and accusations levelled at Najib by investigators in foreign countries. They all know of the reports by the US Department of Justice, the arrests, and closure of banks in Singapore in the 1MDB scandals...” he added.
Mahathir claimed that cabinet ministers, as well as MCA and MIC leaders, do not care what happens to the country, the people or the reputation of good governance built by the founding fathers.
“All they care about is their position, their perks and possibly the bran they get.
“Let the country go to hell. Let it be called a kleptocracy. Let it be listed among the 10 most corrupt countries in the world. They don't care. Cannot be that they don't know. But they don’t care.
“The people can suffer. That is not the problem of the ministers... As long as they do well for themselves, nothing else matters,” he added.
Previously, Mahathir, who is now chairperson of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), claimed that an emergency might be declared if the opposition scored a marginal win in the next polls.
“The opposition may have to face the possibility of the election being declared null and void should the BN lose by a small margin.

“Or, the government would refuse to admit defeat. The opposition would be accused of cheating. No evidence would be needed for the government to declare this. The bullies of the BN would be ready to create instability.
“On this basis, there could be a declaration of a state of emergency and Parliament would be suspended,” he said.
The former prime minister said a national operations council or Mageran (Majlis Gerakan Negara) would be installed and the country would be ruled by decree similar to when the 1969 race riots happened.- Mkini
