I support this demonstration, says Dr M
5.30pm: Pasar Seni - Mahathir, who has contradicted DPM Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's earlier claim that the former PM has only spent six minutes in his flash visit yesterday and is hence of little significance, ends his press conference expressing unequivocal support for the rally.
As he prepares to leave after his press conference, Mahathir tells reporters that he is not planning to stay on with Bersih 4 protesters at Dataran Merdeka who are remaining until midnight.
"No, no, I think I have shown my stand here that I support this demonstration against the government.
"My spirit is with you all," says the 90-year-old former premier.

'Najib the one who doesn't love M'sia'
5.27pm: Pasar Seni - Still at his press conference, Mahathir is asked about Prime Minister Najib Razak's remark that participants of the Bersih 4 do not love the country.
Mahathir replies to the contrary, saying, "He is the one who doesn't love the country. We gave him power to become prime minister, what does he do?"
"He is using (people's) money," adds Mahathir.

This is my first rally, says Dr M
5.15pm: Pasar Seni - Former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad 
speaking at a press conference at a restaurant, says he is 
not supporting Bersih specifically but the rakyat.
"I support the rakyat, not Bersih. Bersih is also (made up) of 
the rakyat, they also dislike Najib," he says.

He adds that claims he was pro-Bersih was to smear his name.

Mahathir admits this is the first time he is joining a street 
protest like Bersih 4.

"This is the first time like this," he says.
