Support for Najib
It is strange that other Umno leaders and members only raised their support (for Najib) once or twice and then fell silent. It looks like the deputy prime minister is waiting for Najib to be ousted. Umno Youth are only good at shouldering Najib in the air and then keeping quiet. The Umno deputy presidents have not made a collective stand or help make any explanations. Can Najib survive in such a scenario or is he just counting his days?

Attack on PAS operation centre
Based on information we received, the suspect had caused chaos at the Bandar Rompin PAS operations centre, which turned into a scuffle. One of the suspect is a civil servant while the other is self-employed. We are seeking a remand order for both of them starting today.

Lee Chong Wei
Lee has been taking cordyceps since he was 13, because his family believed that it was beneficial for this health.

Six months felt like two years for me. It was tough and I couldn't sleep well. To me, it's really not my fault. Maybe it was just bad luck. But after waiting for six months, at least I've gotten this result.

The next PM?
This is why I believe that if Mahathir wants better and more accountable leaders for Umno in the years to come—and at the same time put an end to systemic corruption and improve the quality of the public institutions—the choice of successor must be none other than Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.
Zaid Ibrahim, former law minister, on who should replace Najib Razak if the latter steps down
Mahathir has no interest in appointing the fairest among the ranks of Umno to be the next prime minister. To him, it is not about putting a leader who can serve the people. That is not in the equation. It is about putting someone as prime minister who can take orders and safeguard his as well as Umno's interests.

Help in Permatang Pauh
Therefore we urge all PAS members to reject outright any instructions or stand from that goes against the decision of the PAS central committee, and should any actions by any members prove to be counter the instructions, disciplinary action may be taken on the said members based on the regulations in the party constitution.
