PUTRAJAYA: Che Det, the critical Malay writer of the 1940s whose essays explored the problems of the Malay world, is back - in the blogosphere.

It was the pen name used by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when he wrote essays for the then Straits Times newspaper.

Yesterday, he joined a growing number of local politicians who, since the March 8 general elections, have started blogs to express their views.

His site at is simply titled "Dr Mahathir Mohamad".

"This site is dedicated to publishing my writings as and when I am able to pen my thoughts and opinion," he says.

Dr Mahathir's first entry was on the judicial appointments commission proposed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

In point form and succinct language, he noted the lack of details as to how the commission would operate.

He questioned the extent of the powers to be given to the commission, whether it could appoint or merely recommend judicial candidates for the prime minister's or for the King's approval.

He also questioned if the Conference of Rulers would have a greater say in rejecting and requesting new candidates.

Dr Mahathir's maiden post was on Labour Day at 1.27am and it drew over 100 comments by mid-afternoon.

Many welcomed and congratulated him on becoming a blogger, while a few stated their disagreement with his statement that the government would display weakness should it work with the Opposition.
