Mukhriz gave two reasons: (1) party elections are internal matters (2) Opposition will spin something out of the debate. What he may have failed to realise is that he could very well become Prime Minister of Malaysia one day. So, why doesn't he start by showing to all Malaysians who he really is and what he really stands for. Malaysians may already have become too tired with the politics of anti-Social Contract keris-waving UMNO Youth leaders in our midst. And to say that the Opposition will spin a story, that's so not matured. Of course, everyone will have something to say after a debate.
Come on Mukhriz Mahathir, show the steel in your spine?
