Dr M dijadual angkat sumpah 9.30 malam ini

(10-05-2018)

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dijadual mengangkat sumpah sebagai perdana menteri ketujuh negara pada malam ini, menurut laporan Bernama. Terdahulu, pengerusi Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) itu mengadap Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V di Istana Negara, Kuala Lumpur. Menurut New Straits Times, Ketua Setiausaha Negara Tan Sri Ali Hamsa, Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun dan Panglima ATM Jen Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor juga akan mengadap Agong bagi membincangkan proses peralihan kuasa.

Mahathir dan isterinya Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Ali tiba di Istana Negara petang tadi dengan kereta limusin Proton Perdana berwarna hitam metalik dengan nombor plat “Proton 2020”. Ia melambangkan visi Mahathir – ketika menjadi perdana menteri untuk kali pertama – untuk menjadikan Malaysia menjadi sebuah negara maju menjelang 2020. Namun selepas “berpatah arang” dengan Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak, presiden Umno itu membentangkan visinya sendiri iaitu Transformasi Nasional 2050 (TN50). Selain isterinya, Mahathir juga ditemani pemimpin parti HARAPAN iaitu Presiden PKR Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Presiden BERSATU Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Setiausaha Agung DAP Lim Guan Eng dan Presiden AMANAH Mohamad Sabu.

Chin Tong: I’ll continue as Harapan’s strategist, backroom boy

Ousted lawmaker Liew Chin Tong will now focus his efforts on being a strategist and backroom boy for Pakatan Harapan. Speaking to Malaysiakini about his narrow loss to MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong for the Johor parliamentary seat of Ayer Hitam, he said it had been a calculated risk when he chose to contest the difficult seat. “I came into this seat with my eyes open, I knew that it was either Wee losing with a small margin or winning with a small margin.”

“I have been an MP for 10 years (in Kluang), I didn’t want to stay in a safe seat to see Najib (Abdul Razak) remain in power. “I knew by me doing this very daring move in Ayer Hitam, I would set up some positive waves (to other seats), which I did, I think,” Liew said after attending a press conference held by Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad earlier today. Thus, in view of Harapan taking the federal government, he considered his loss as a small cost. He also shared his plans for the current future. “This is a new government and there will be plenty to do. I have always served as a strategist and a backroom boy, so these will be my roles,” he said.

希盟总裁马哈迪披露,国家王宫获悉希盟取得国会简单多数议席后,已召见希盟领袖稍后到王宫。马哈迪今日凌晨约3点,与一众希盟领袖召开记者会时表示,他会与公正党主席旺阿兹莎,即希盟的副首相人选一同觐见国家元首。

由于希盟以公正党旗帜竞选,所以王宫传召的是公正党领袖。他盼望,能在稍后到王宫觐见国家元首时,宣誓出任首相。“国家王宫获悉我们取得多数议席(执政),已经联系我们。”“我们会有宣誓就任首相仪式。”宣布周四、五休假他说,当首相宣誓就职后,就能组阁并委任副首相与部长。“我已通知政府首席秘书(阿里韩沙,Ali Hamsa),

他应宣布明天与后天放假。(包括周末在内)4天放假。”但他笑言,对于胜出大选的希盟而言,接下来则没有休假可言。
