Breaking Silence: Dr. Mahathir Disavows Alleged “Dubai Move” Ouster Plot

In a stunning revelation, former two-time Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has categorically denied any involvement in the purported “Dubai Move,” an alleged conspiracy to remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from office. The 98-year-old political veteran, known for his tumultuous history with Anwar, took to X (formerly Twitter) to address the swirling accusations. Dr. Mahathir, a key figure in Malaysian politics, not only refuted the allegations but also took a pointed jab at his former deputy, questioning Anwar’s own history of attempting backdoor governments dating back to 2008.

Read Story In Detail

Dr. Mahathir’s Defiant Response

In his online statement, Dr. Mahathir asserted his innocence, emphasizing that he has not visited Dubai in a considerable amount of time. Dismissing any connection to the alleged backdoor government plot, he expressed surprise at the timing of the accusations and questioned their credibility. The seasoned politician drew attention to past instances where similar maneuvers were not considered treasonous, betrayals, or threats to governmental stability, economic well-being, or democratic principles.

Anwar’s Backdoor Government Expertise

Dr. Mahathir did not stop at denial; he directly challenged Anwar’s stance, claiming that attempts to form backdoor governments were Anwar’s “expertise.” He highlighted various incidents from 2008 onward, suggesting that such maneuvers were acceptable in the past, as long as they led to one assuming the role of Prime Minister. This subtle yet incisive critique adds a layer of complexity to the ongoing political narrative.

Confirmation of Ouster Plot

The alleged ouster plot against Prime Minister Anwar, initially disclosed by Community Communication Department deputy director-general Datuk Ismail Yusop, has garnered confirmation from both government and opposition figures. Perikatan Nasional elections chief Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor clarified the location of the “Dubai Move,” stating that it did not take place in the United Arab Emirates capital but rather in downtown Chow Kit. Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi supported the claims, citing intelligence reports that authenticate the existence of the ouster plot.

Anwar’s Response and Political Implications

Acknowledging the allegations, Prime Minister Anwar chose to downplay their significance, focusing instead on his governmental responsibilities. As these developments unfold, Malaysia’s political landscape braces for potential ramifications, with the alleged backdoor maneuver injecting a new layer of complexity into an already intricate political scenario. The nation watches closely as key players respond and the true implications of the “Dubai Move” continue to unfold.
