Next PM - Horses’ Mouths – 7 April 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .

The next PM

The PR (Pakatan Rakyat) will lose its silver bullet if Najib resigns. He is its biggest asset. Things will be worse for the opposition if Muhyiddin succeeds in improving the affairs of the state.

A Kadir Jasin, former News Straits Times group editor-in-chief, arguing that Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is the best person to take over from Datuk Seri Najib Razak as prime minister and Umno president, as pressure piled on the latter to resign



Service charge

It is the right of customers to decide not to pay service charges and there is no prescribed service charge rates.

Alias Ahmad, Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism (KPDNKK) secretary-general, insisting that restaurants and hotels without a collective agreement between employers and employees are not allowed to impose service charges



Attacks from former MB

The fact is, the open tender system which has a thousand benefits is now polluted by the cut-off system which allows contracts to be awarded to those who are not the lowest bidder. (It) opens room for back-door negotiations, corruption and abuse of power and public funds. This is tragic because it is the people of Selangor who will have to pay again to fix subpar services funded by the public coffers.

Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, former Selangor Menteri Besar, calling his successor Azmin Ali to resign for allegedly introducing a system which opens the doors to corruption



Show proof

With Sirul's denial and that of his lawyer, the question is whether the IGP had lied.

Mahfuz Omar, PAS information chief, on murder convict Sirul Azhar Umar denying Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar Khalid's statement that he had sent police officers to record the latter’s statement in Australia



Najib and Dr M

Hot and cold.

Shahrir Samad, BN Backbenchers Council chief, on what Prime Minister Najib Razak had told him on how things are between him and Dr Mahathir



Dr Mahathir’s allegations

We have discussed this with the PM and we feel that we'll answer on things that we are able to, especially the purchase of the government jet, 1Malaysia Development Bhd and the goods and services tax. All this we can answer but we also advised him to speak up on this himself when the time is right. And I don't think this is a problem for him. Sometimes we cannot pretend nothing is happening, and I am confident Najib will answer the allegations made against him.
