Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad feels the time has not come yet to discuss the release of jailed former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The former prime minister said no promises could be made about the agenda stated by Pribumi president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and it could only be considered if the party was in power.

Muhyiddin had expressed support for the release of Anwar and pledged to make that the agenda of the party’s struggle.

"All plans of the party will come later. Now, we cannot make any promises because we are powerless.

“If that is the desire of all, surely we cannot say no. We will look into the efforts (to release Anwar) later," Dr Mahathir told reporters on the sidelines of the 55th annual meeting of the Muslim Welfare Organisation of Malaysia (Perkim). [...]

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department and Perkim vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said if the opposition political parties took up the agenda to 'free Anwar', they should also campaign for the release of other prisoners.

"If you want to have Anwar released, then you must also free all the others.

“If the struggle is to release just one individual, what about the plight of the other prisoners?

"Perhaps they (the others) are too small that they escape notice?" he asked. – Bernama

Wakakaka. From those Mahathir's words, may we safely assume the olde man has no intention whatsoever to release his (1st) archfoe (Najib is currently his (2nd) Nemesis, wakakaka).

Why couldn't he say a simple 'Yes'?

Why qualify his response with so many conditions like "Now, we cannot make any promises because we are powerless" as if we don't know that?

He would be considered to tap-dance, indicating 'No' without actually saying that word, in a manoeuvre we are familiar with and which we term the unique Malay 'beating-around-the-bush', wakakaka.

With the exception of AA and TC, is Pakatan so hard-up that they will still support Mahathir's Pribumi? AA and TC have already committed themselves, wakakaka.

It seems likely that Mahathir's sole motive in shaking the hands of Anwar had been to get his support and more importantly the support of Pakatan. I bet Mahathir had his hand which shook Anwar's carefully sterilised, wakakaka.

As for freeing Anwar, Shahidan Kassim, much as I think he's a clown, might have a point, wakakaka. Anwar was known as  sodomist since Karpal Singh's days, and it was Mahathir who then defended him or ignored his sexual escapades. I reckon it'll be to the benefit, nay, salvation of Malaysia if he stays out of politics, or made to do so, wakakakaka.
