It seems that former Pm Mahatir has finally admitted that Umno, which he had helmed as their president for 22 years, does not have smart Malays!
In his speech at the Global Culture Symposium in Malacca, he was quoted by Bernama to have said:-
"For decades Umno has 'not allowed' the smart ones to join the party. That is why many doctors have joined Pas."
But Mahathir has to ask himself whether he was the one largely responsible for the situation since he was their leader for 22 years!
But I suspect that what he meant by smart Malays is smart in the sense that he thinks he is smart.
Well, do Malaysians want to have another smart Mahathir?
