LANGKAWI: Those working to unseat Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir will lead Barisan Nasional to its doom in the next general election, predicts former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).
"I'm not saying don't change the mentri besar, but know the consequences," he said, Monday.
He said those who wanted to remove the present mentri besar "don't have a good reputation".
"They caused Barisan to lose to PAS (in 2008). So if they take over, the likelihood is that they will lose in the next election."
Dr Mahathir was speaking after opening the Global Doctors' clinic in the arcade of Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa here.
Though Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had also stayed on the island last night, Dr Mahathir said he did not meet Najib.
Asked what advice he had for his son Mukhriz, Dr Mahathir said: "Anything can happen in politics. Nothing is permanent. You have friends and enemies. You can expect friends to behave like enemies, and sometimes enemies will behave like friends."
