Old time rivals former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah put up a show of camaraderie just one day before the Budget 2021 is to be passed on Tuesday (Dec 15) and
said they are ready to form a "unity govt" if the Budget fails to be passed.

Although the duo repeatedly said they are not offering themselves to be the next PM, Dr Mahathir said if he gets enough support from the MPs, he does not mind becoming the next premier.

Dr Mahathir said he is not working with opposition chief PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, adding that he also will not want any MPs who are facing court cases such as former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak or Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to be part of the new government should they vote against Budget 2021 on Tuesday.
