Rompin by-election

If I am elected, the first thing I will do is to express the voice of the rakyat to Parliament, especially on the GST issu.

Nazri Ahmad, PAS candidate for Rompin by-election


In Rompin, we have two issues (that will affect the election) namely GST and Felda. People who always support BN, the criticism will not have impact. But for those non-BN supporters, it will.

Adnan Yaakob, Pahang Menteri Besar



Permatang Pauh by-election

If it is (PKR's president and candidate Dr) Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail), she will not even get past my office lobby. There is no reason for me to see her. She is from the opposition.

Ismail Sabri, Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister, threatening Permatang Pauh voters by stressing that applications for agricultural funds and projects in Permatang Pauh will not be approved if Pakatan Rakyat wins the by-election again


We condemn such remarks as totally unacceptable and arrogant.

Nurul Izzah Anwar, PKR vice president


I hope Ismail Sabri does not act wild. If Kak Wan (Azizah) is chased away when she wants to enter the Ministry's lobby, this is too much.

Lim Guan Eng, Penang chief minister, demanding an apology from Ismail Sabri for his remarks

Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, PKR Youth chief, on Finance Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s order to Communications and Multimedia Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek to take charge of the goods and services tax (GST) for prepaid mobile phone services



GST – between Malays and Chinese

Furthermore, we (Chinese) have the least children. Who has the most children? Our Malay friends have more children. When there are more children, there will be more consumption. When there are less children, then there will be less consumption, isn't it?

Heng Seai Kie, MCA Wanita chief, telling the Chinese in the country not to oppose the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as the system will see the Malays paying more
