Being lucky

Khairy is lucky because he is Pak Lah's son-in-law. Ibrahim Ali would be lucky, too, if he is Pak Lah's son-in-law. But I am just anak orang kampung (a kampung boy). In Umno, everything is inherited.

Ibrahim Ali, Perkasa chief, questioning whether Khairy Jamaluddin can even win a party divisional post if he was not the son-in-law of former premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi



Kedah MB

I feel there's no reason for me to let go of this position. There's no huge problem that needs me to do so.

Mukhriz Mahathir, Kedah Menteri Besar



Dr M – Najib’s war continues

(So I said) 'show me the agreement' (but) there was no such agreement. For six months he didn't talk to me.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, saying Prime Minister Najib Razak gave him the cold treatment after he questioned the prime minister on the delay of the ‘crooked bridge’ project in the Johor Strait


I have a lot of respect for Mahathir, (but) I think he has to give an opportunity to Najib to prove himself. (Najib) has done a lot of good work [...] if we go and stop him now [...] I think the people will suffer.

Samy Vellu, former MIC chief




These employees who receive minimal salary play a role as the country's implementors, are citizens and assets to the government and nation. If these assets are not taken care of, we worry that they would not be able to put their mind and soul to their tasks and enhance their productivity. Aside from that, they would also not be able to provide good education to their children because of financial constraints.

Azih Muda, Ceupacs president, revealing that about 400,000 civil servants in the country are still earning as low as RM805 a month



No drama

It is fine that they want a new face, after all, I held the post for the past seven terms. No drama, 100% okay but this should continue at the top level election in June.

Why watch the watches?

I mean, why should we monitor (watches owned by politicians)? Before I joined politics, I was a corporate man.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Home Minister, alluding to his corporate past as the reason behind his ownership of luxury watches
