Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak

“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one of my predecessors would be against me in this manner,” Malaysiakini quoted Najib as saying Thursday at the opening of the World Capital Markets Symposium.

“He is no longer a prime minister and should not take centrestage,” he said, drawing laughter from the audience.

While Najib did not mention Dr Mahathir in his speech, it was obvious that he was referring to the elder statesman.

Dr Mahathir has been highly critical of Najib in the past months, particularly on the issue of debt-ridden state investor 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

The former prime minister had raised eyebrows when he attended the Bersih 4 rally over the weekend.

The protesters, among other things, demanded the resignation of Najib over allegations that US$700 million (S$990 million) was deposited into his personal bank accounts.

The Malaysian leader has denied any wrongdoing.
