SHAH ALAM - Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will not be joining the Opposition, as he does not agree with its views.

"No, I won't join the Opposition. I don't agree with them," the former prime minister said, adding that he may re-join Umno once party president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has left.

On Monday, Dr Mahathir announced that he was quitting Umno.

When asked about his future plans, he said that he would continue to expose "the wrongdoings of the Government".

Speaking at the Proton Centre of Excellence here, Dr Mahathir added that suspended Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin could run in the next party elections.

"He is still a member. If he wants to challenge … he can," he said.

On The Wall Street Journal's latest report, he said Najib should sue the publication for false reporting if there is no truth to the allegations.

"They can be sued in their own country. He can sue," he said.
