Hudud - Horses’ Mouths – 18 March 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .


The aspirations and will of the people who have given PAS the mandate to rule in Kelantan since 1990 until 2015 for 25 years must be respected.

Mahfuz Omar, PAS information chief, defending Kelantan PAS' plan to table the hudud amendments today


The voice of the voters must be heeded as they are concerned that with state assembly focussing on other matters, it may have an impact on their fate. They may also be supporters of the Kelantan PAS government.

Mujahid Yusof Rawa, PAS central committee chief, calling on Keltan to heed Merdeka Centre’s findings that showed 84 percent of Kelantanese wanting the state government to focus on providing relief from last year's devastating floods


It is only an amendment. Why the fuss (kecoh)? What DAP is asking is for the state government to do the amendments, clause by clause, instead of tabling it as a whole bill. But our view is that it would be too complicated if we do it like that.

Khalid Samad, Shah Alam MP


It is not as if that once we table this enactment, we will forget about the flood-recovery works altogether. Everything can move simultaneously.

Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah, Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar



The Government needs to be transparent and inform the Dewan Rakyat the true situation regarding the country's debts. The reason behind the GST should not be kept a secret. If the rakyat is given additional burden we are being unfair to them. We need to be cautious on whether the government has a right to enforce this additional burden.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Gua Musang MP, calling for a detailed explanation regarding the nation's current financial situation, which he deemed was in a "critical" state


The GST collection will go into a consolidated fund whereby it will be returned to the people for the good of the people.

Ahmad Maslan, Deputy Finance Minister, denying that that proceeds from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be used to pay the government's debts


Pakatan Rakyat

Pakatan Rakyat must continue its work of exposing the power abuse and mismanagement within the Barisan Nasional (government), and know that these two issues will be the key fodder to get the people to help us defeat BN. Pakatan Rakyat must continue to unite regardless of our differences. These differences are only little and we need not fear or augment them.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS vice president, calling for greater unity in Pakatan Rakyat


Selangor water issue

We have already received a mandate from the PM to do whatever necessary and continue to proceed with the matter. We are scheduled to have a meeting at the officer level within this week. We are still waiting for feedback.

Maximus Ongkili, Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister
