Dr. M's preconditions for " reconciliation " ?

KeADILan's publicity chief Tian Chua (left) is quoted in a Bahasa Malaysia item in Malaysia Today that one of the preconditions of ex-PM Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad for any reconcilation with PM Abdullah is that a controversial 'adviser' of the latter, Khairy Jamaludin and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz be first removed from the govenment. The Oxford-educated Khairy Jamaludin is also the PM Abdullah's son-in-law.

Tian Chua is further quoted as saying that he obtained the information from " Dr.Mahathir's people". Excerpts of Tian Chua's statement is quoted today in Harakah Daily.

Meanwhile, former editor-in-chief of the New Straits Times Kadir Jasin claimed in his blog that in a meeting held last Saturday afternoon in Dr. Mahathir's resident at the Mines Resort in Sungai Besi, former Umno secretary-general Khalil Yaacob was told that as long as PM Abdullah does not answer to the questions he has raised publicly, he would not change his positions. Kadir also quoted sources as saying that Dr. Mahathir opines that PM Abdullah has the right to reply and rebut his questions.

According to Kadir, the meeting took place from 6.00 pm to 7.30 pm.
