mahathirselamatkan malaysiaPETALING JAYA: Former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today announced a declaration to remove Najib Razak as PM in which he also called for much-needed reforms after his removal.

“We agree that the country is being led by someone who is doing damage to it. The damage will get worse.

“Hence, we have to come together to rid ourselves of Najib, the PM of Malaysia,” he said at a press conference at Universiti Malaya Alumni House.

Top leaders from across the political divide, including from PAS, PKR, Amanah and DAP, as well as NGOs and civil societies were present.

Mahathir said citizens had expressed concern for a long time about what was happening in the country.

“That is why it is necessary to come together. We must do something to stop the problems we are facing.

“It’s not about joining the Opposition or joining any particular group. It’s about citizens joining together to show support,” he said.

He called on all Malaysians to focus and voice out their concerns to address the problems.

“While we may all have differing ideologies or be from different parties, we all agree for Najib to cease being the PM.”

After reading the declaration, Mahathir became the first of 58 signatories to it.

Following him were his wife, Siti Hasmah Ali, former MCA president Ling Liong Sik, former deputy premier Muhyiddin Yassin and Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali.
