  • Despite 1MDB woes, pundits say Najib now unassailable after Cabinet purge

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 ― With the strategic removal of potential challengers from within his Cabinet, Datuk Seri Najib Razak is likely to remain prime minister until the next election despite his troubles with debt-riddled 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), political observers said. With a specific reference to his deputy in government as well as in Umno, Tan Sri Muhyiddin, the analysts said the prime minister has effectively neutralised dissent within his party at the risk of enlarging the rift between the camps of both leaders. “Najib will stay as PM, what he has done is standard textbook on political survival, a carrot-and-stick approach where you get rid of your detractors and reward your loyalists,” Universiti Malaysia Sarawak political scientist Dr Faisal Hazis told Malay Mail Online when contacted yesterday.
