Dr Mahathir said the ''Arab Spring'' exposed undemocratic and autocratic
regimes which forced the people to topple their governments.
In comparison, he said, Malaysia was quite different and as such, there was
no necessity "for us to act outside of the law to topple the governmment" and
therefore, the people should evaluate the situation rationally.
Meanwhile, when asked to comment on the leadership tussle at Parti Keadilan
Rakyat (PKR) in Selangor, Dr Mahathir said that it would affect Selangor PKR but
Barisan Nasional (BN) should not be exhilarated over the situation.
"The turbulence taking place will affect PKR, but BN needs to continue its
effort to win back Selangor in the coming general election. They (BN) must work
hard as they cannot just expect to win against weak opponents," he added.
