PUTRAJAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he had personally asked Tun Salleh Abas to resign from his post as Lord President in 1988 as he thought it was the best move. 

He said Salleh had first agreed to step down but a few days later refused to do so, which prompted the Government to take the necessary action to remove him.
