Dr M’s dagger
Apart from (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) dismissing the claims as 'rubbish', there was no investigation. This is a human life. It would be very cruel for Sirul to die for just following orders.
Dr Mahathir Mohamad, questioning who issued the order to murder Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu
Will there be reports similar to those filed against Umno man Khairuddin Abu Hassan for questioning 1MDB?
A Kadir Jasin, former News Straits Times group editor-in-chief, asking if police reports would be lodged against Mahathir for attacking Najib

Nur Jazlan, Pulai MP
Economic mismanagement, investments to enrich only certain people, and widespread corruption - all this is not halal. Such crimes must be prevented first before the people are forced to pay a burdensome tax; this should have been the Fatwa Council’s focus. GST is like pouring water onto smoke. Fire should be fought with fire.
Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS vice president, urging the National Fatwa Council to advise Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak that is it not right to say that the goods and services tax is halal

If I am deemed to be the 'torchbearer' candidate, then I will stand again. But winning will depend on the voters. I know them and I have been around for sometime. I just took a step back for Anwar, and I feel they will recognise me. I hope I can give the service that the people are hoping for.
Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, PKR president, on standing for the Permatang Pauh by-election
The honeymoon is over. In fact, we must work to stop politicking and prioritise the people’s future. We need to show the people that there is continuity and that election promises are fulfilled.
Khalid Ibrahim, former Selangor MB, telling his successor Azmin Ali that honeymoon is over and it is time to deliver on the state’s promises to the people
