Elected PM can be removed before term ends, says Dr Mahathir

An elected prime minister can be removed through legal means, says former Umno supremo Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as he continues to defend his grassroots campaign to oust Datuk Seri Najib Razak. Dr Mahathir, who had put down a people's movement to oust him in the late 1990s, said today it was legitimate to call for a prime minister to resign before the end of his term. "The fact that the PM is elected does not mean he cannot be removed before his term (ends). "Elected people have been removed or terminated from office for various reasons all over the democratic world," Dr Mahathir, the fourth prime minister, said in the latest posting of his blog He then proceeded to list in point form all the reasons Najib had to go, including the prime minister's role in the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) financial scandal and the RM2.6 billion donation channelled into his bank accounts. Dr Mahathir is leading a campaign called "Save Malaysia" aimed at getting Najib out of office. – March 14, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
