Kuala Lumpur: Former Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad insists that Shafie should be the next Prime Minister and his son Mukhriz Deputy Prime Minister.
He said the proposal to name his son Mukhriz Mahathir the deputy prime ministerial candidate has been suggested by DAP and Amanah leaders.
“I’m aware that I would be criticised when naming my son Mukhriz as the deputy prime minister II.
“This proposal did not come from me. In a joint statement by Amanah president Mohamad Sabu and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, Mukhriz’s appointment as deputy prime minister II was already mentioned,” Mahathir said in a blog post today.
