Instead, he said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who was previously the Minister of Home Affairs who has full power to deregister the DAP if the party was clearly able to destroy the Malay race.
"It is the Malays who could destroy the DAP if the Malay Home Minister cancels the registration of DAP. The power to cancel was with Muhyiddin Yassin if he saw the DAP will destroy the Malays.
"But what Muhyiddin is interested in is using the DAP to scare the Malays so that they (Malays) joined the movement to bring down the PH and he (Muhyiddin) became prime minister with the support of UMNO and PAS," he said in an article on his blog today.In fact, Dr Mahathir stressed that it was not possible for the DAP to control the Cabinet with just six of its ministers.
He said the number of DAP ministers was the same as the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) which won only 13 seats but received the same ministerial quota."It is impossible for the DAP to control the Cabinet with six ministers. All decisions in the Cabinet require the approval of 28 ministers.
"The assumption that six Cabinet ministers can control 22 other ministers is absurd. After all, my approval as Prime Minister has to be secured," he said.
Dr Mahathir said Muhyiddin was now trying to rid Bersatu of its leaders by nullifying their membership.
Thus, Dr Mahathir reiterated that he would not cooperate with Muhyiddin who had brought down Pakatan Harapan (PH).
