Dr Mahathir calls PM Anwar’s unity govt a ‘dictatorship’

KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today hit out at the Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim-led unity government, describing it as a dictatorship.

He said all Malaysians have the right to be able to speak up about their unhappiness towards the current government.

“However, this government is against any form of criticism, they even take action against Opposition parties. This is the state that we are in.

“This (government) is a dictatorship. People can’t speak up or criticise the government and that is a dictator for you,” said Dr Mahathir at a press conference on Malay Proclamation that was streamed live on Facebook.
