ALOR SETAR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is willing to give his advice to the Government whether he is given a special post or not.

His son Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir said his father was willing to share his experiences with the current Barisan Nasional government.

“My father is a veteran leader and politician, he still loves the Barisan government,” he said when met after attending the Jerlun parliamentary Hari Raya open house here Sunday.

Also at the function were state Umno deputy chairman Datuk Paduka Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah and Jerlun Umno division chairman Datuk Abu Hasan Sarif.

Mukhriz was commenting on a statement made by Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) president Datuk Ibrahim Ali, who proposed that Dr Mahathir be appointed as adviser to the Government.

He was quoted as saying in a Bahasa Malaysia daily that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak should consider the proposal to prevent other parties from using the former premier’s advice to confuse the people.

Mukhriz said that his father’s experiences could be use to overcome problems faced by the current Government.

“Although the problems are different from my father’s era, I believed that his method of handling the earlier problems is also applicable in the current situation.”
