The solution is not to burden the people with taxes. You must encourage economic activity among the people to help develop the economy. Helping people is not just for the elections. To develop the economy, it means making sure the rakyat can stand on their own. We advise the government to remedy the situation by going back to an Islamic economy. Islam is not only about hudud, it is about the economy.
Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS President, calling Putrajaya to turn to Islam to find the solution for the economic woes faced by the country
The government say that GST will reduce prices, but when we go to shops, items that used to cost RM100 is now RM106. This is modern mathematics and is it reasonable?
Idris Ahmad, Bukit Gantang MP
We are all Tok Janggut.
Mohamad Sabu, PAS deputy president, calling all Malaysians to emulate the spirit of Kelantanese legend Tok Janggut and rise against what the opposition claims is the oppressive Goods and Services Tax (GST)

Umno wants to co-operate with us then we co-operate. Whether or not they are sincere let Allah decide. It is not for us to decide if they are sincere or not. As of now, we should just take their gesture as sincere. The rest is up to Allah.
Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS President
The Umno now is about money. The leaders of Umno are loyal because they get contracts. The ones who receive posts receive money.
Dr Mahathir Mohamad, on the present day Umno
The crooked bridge
He had a few concerns which he wanted me to address, and I have shared my views on those matters. He did not approve of the 1Malaysia People's Aid (BR1M) scheme and he asked me to build the crooked bridge to replace the current Johor causeways.
Najib Razak, Prime Minister
My hope is that when he replaced (Abdullah) he would do the crooked bridge and some other things that we agreed to when I was PM. (That they) will be continued after I resigned and which Abdullah did not do. Najib at one time had said if Singapore agrees or does not agree, we will do it… But when he became prime minister, he did not do.
Dr Mahathir Mohamad, refuting Najib Razak’s claims that he was upset with the latter for not building the crooked bridge to Singapore
