Malaysiakini - 30 Mac 2009:
"Dr M expects 'firm' leadership from new PM,"
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berkata:
"Unfortunately as a second man (deputy) he (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) hasn't performed very well. His tendency is just to follow blindly his leader," he said.
"It doesn't speak well of a leader who allows himself to be so overawed by his superior."
