Dr Mahathir to set up core group to oust Najib

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he agreed with opposition parties PKR, Parti Amanah Negara and DAP on the need to remove Datuk Seri Najib Razak as prime minister and would set up a core group to achieve this objective. The former prime minister, who quit Umno today in protest against Najib, said he had no plans to set up a new political party but would look at starting a group. "It has not yet been formed, (I hope) a core group can show their commitment by signing a declaration. "We agree on one thing, that is to get rid of Najib," referring to opposition parties. He did not say, however, if opposition parties would be part of this group. Dr Mahathir announced that he would leave Umno today at a press conference in Putrajaya, saying that it was no longer the Umno he knew as the party was now dedicated to keeping Najib in power. – February 29, 2016.
