KUALA LUMPUR: Former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic) will be the key speaker at a public talk and dialogue to give his views on the nation’s political transition since he left office in 2003.

The Centre For A Better Tomorrow (CENBET) co-president Gan Ping Sieu said: “He is expected to talk about the economy, political and social dilemma in the current lea­dership. He has been very vocal on the current administration.”

The public talk and dialogue titled “The Malaysian Dilemma” will be held on Feb 12 at Connexion@Nexus, Bangsar South City.

It is organised with cooperation from the Global Movement of Moderates (GMM), Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) and the UOA Group.

Gan said civil societies, student leaders, ­diplomats and the public were invited to attend the talk, followed by a question and answer session.

GMM chief executive officer Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said such open dialogue and discussion was timely.

“Many people are beginning to come forward and propose ideas ... we need to put our heads toget­her and think about the future of Malaysia,” said Saifuddin.

Those interested can email converse@cenbet.org.my to reserve a spot before Feb 5.
