KUALA LUMPUR — March 3, 2020: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang today praised Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for his handling of the country’s recent political impasse which led to its peaceful end.
He also paid tribute to the former prime minister’s contributions and role in leading the nation while prime minister.
According to Hadi, the 94-year-old Mahathir will always be remembered as an exemplary statesman.
“Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad taking over the administration and dealing with the government and opposition since the 14th general election, upholding his duty by controlling the situation until a peaceful end was reached without turmoil like those seen in other countries, even in his age, is an example of him as a modern-day statesman who will be preserved and always remembered in the folds of history,” Hadi wrote at Facebook today.
The political deadlock ended with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong appointing Pribumi Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister on Sunday.
