Haris Che Mat, the former special officer to Mukhriz Mahathir, finally has confirmed what Malaysians had suspected all this while.
That former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad wants to fast track his son Mukhriz to be the Prime Minister after overthrowing incumbent Najib Razak.
Haris stunning disclosure has exposed the real agenda behind Mahathir’s grand “Save Malaysia” propaganda.
He said Mahathir and the former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz were “very hopeful” that the latter would win one of the three elected Umno vice president slots during the party election in 2014.
By becoming a vice president, Haris revealed that Mukhriz thought he can speedily assume the number one post in Putrajaya administration.
“But Mukhriz lost and he got very angry.
“He blamed Prime Minister Najib for his defeat,” said Haris, the Umno Pokok Sena division vice chairman.
“Mukhriz’s aim was to become the Prime Minister on a fast track.”
He said plots and sub-plots to topple Najib and sabotage 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) then started in 2014 after the Mukhriz defeat.
He said plots to sabotage initial public offering (IPO) of 1MDB started in early 2014 with the intention to cause a mess and crisis in the government-link-company.
“The crisis was plotted to bring down Najib,” said Haris.
He said Mahathir was determined to overthrow Najib by all means to ensure that his son Mukhriz would head the federal government.
He said Mahathir initial plan was to oust Najib and appoint Muhyiddin Yassin as an interim Prime Minister to allow a grace period to prepare Mukhriz for the top post.
He said Muhyiddin would last as the premier until Mukhriz had won the deputy president post in Umno party polls in 2018
“After that Muhyiddin will be forced to resign and surrender his seat to Mukhriz,” said Haris.
