Jan 10: The organisers of a forum tomorrow night to discuss the nation's fate if Mahathir Mohamad becomes PM again have agreed to add two more speakers to ensure a more balanced discourse. The two are Rais Hussin, who is the chief strategist for Mahathir's Pribumi party, and Hishamuddin Rais, former student leader.
I wish they could include Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali, who shocked many today when he slammed the Mahathir-Anwar alliance (Deciding on an ex-con to lead the country is a shameful act, says Perkasa president)), says Perkasa president). Perkasa has long been associated with Mahathir and Ibrahim was, until that statement, considered a Mahathir loyalist.
I ask one of the organisers if they expect Mahathir to make a surprise appearance at the forum. "I hope he will."
