This is a childish and immature decision. Each party elects its own leader. So if the parties want to work together, they must accept the leader chosen by each party.
Mustafa Ali, PAS secretary general, on DAP’s decision to cut ties with PAS president but not the party
For PAS, no party can ask another in PR to leave, other than that party to withdraw itself.
Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS vice president
Cutting ties with the PAS president is not the way nor the best solution to overcome this issue.
Salahuddin Ayub, PAS vice president
Any decision to cut off ties with PAS President brings a negative impact to PAS.
Mohamad Sabu, PAS deputy president
However, we will not reach that stage because we believe that there are more goodness and positive things that we can learn from this world of information overload or what is known today as hyperconnectivity.
Ahmad Shabery Cheek, Communications and Multimedia Minister, insisting that the government will not make any move to block social media and networking sites, such as Facebook and Google, despite having to face the challenge of negative information overload on the Internet
PM’s stand on hudud
I believe BN has already conducted their meeting and they will have a joint statement later. We should just wait for this final statement from the prime minister. Let us give him (the PM) some time.
Liow Tiong Lai, MCA president, urging all to give Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak more time to make public the government’s stand on the implementation of hudud law
I don’t agree that PM’s decision to delay the announcement on BN’s stand on hudud is strategic. Instead it shows the PM’s weakness in making important decisions.
Sim Tze Tsin, Bayan Baru MP
I think we want to ensure the final position of BN not only reflects the views within BN but also takes into consideration that the federal constitution is supreme and that Islam is the religion of the federation. This is a delicate matter but we must be guided by the fact that the constitution is supreme.
Khairy Jamaluddin, Umno Youth chief
I have seen the comments made in response to my comments, they conveniently excluded the fact that we do not only declare our assets to the prime minister but also to MACC. The MACC have our files to scrutinise our wealth. If they see we are living beyond our means, should that be so, action should be taken against us.
Khairy Jamaluddin, Sports and Youth Minister, responding to critics who called on ministers to declare their assets
