KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pix) arrived at Bersih 4 rally, getting down near Central Market here.
The former prime minister was accompanied by his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, former Umno minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim and four bodyguards at about 4.10pm Sunday.
He was wearing a checkered blue shirt with a hat and headed towards Central Market, where he gave an impromptu press conference.
"I am here to support the people. This is not about the Chinese or Indians or Malays. This is not about Umno, BN, PAS, DAP or whatever. This is about the feelings of the people." he said.
He also repeated his allegations against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, asking him to step down.
"We should move for a motion of no confidence in Parliament," said Dr Mahathir.
He then headed for Dataran Merdeka, where the bulk of Bersih 4 participants are gathered.
Dr Mahathir was also seen in the vicinity of Dataran Merdeka Saturday night.
He said he "just wanted to see" the situation for himself and left about 10 minutes later.
