Say it to my face, Tun M tells ‘Mahathir too old?’ panellists

PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan Chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad surprised the panellists of a forum entitled "Is Tun M too old to be PM?" in Shah Alam today by showing up for it.

The panellists are Institute for Malaysian Political Analysis (Mapan) director Dr Kamarul Zaman Yusoff, psychologist Prof Datuk Dr Mat Saat Mohd Baki and Fitness Malaysia instructor Kevin Zahri Abdul Ghaffar.

The forum organised by a media house was moderated by Nazri Kahar from Astro Awani.

The 93-year-old former prime minister received a standing ovation when he gatecrashed the forum.

"I am willing to become prime minister because I was forced to do so ... When I retired, I thought I could go on a cruise," he said.

Taking to Twitter and Facebook, Mahathir said: "There is a forum on whether Tun M is too old to be PM. I am present. I am here, guys. Say it to my face."
