Dr M to Najib: Choose Cabinet lineup carefully...

...otherwise he will be “signing his own death warrant if the wrong selection is made.”

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that a corrupt cabinet will not only be the incoming Prime Minister’s death warrant but could also lead to the demise of Umno.

“People are watching and we know who is corrupt. If Najib as prime minister chooses them, it will be signing his own death warrant and he will lose the 13th general election."

He said this during a Q&A session after his lecture on “Democracy and the Future Leadership of Malaysia” at the Tun Hussein Onn Memorial in Kuala Lumpur Saturday.

The former Prime Minister pointed out it was up to Umno members and the people to check the party's candidates and prevent the corrupt from winning.

"There is a lot of money politics and if corrupt leaders win, then Umno will not regain support," Dr Mahathir said.

He added that graft had turned off most people, even BN members, from supporting the coalition in the last elections.
