Dr M – Najib’s feud

I have some ability in debates. If you want to debate, okay lah.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, expressing his readiness to debate his successor Najib Abdul Razak on a number of burning issues


Tun Dr Mahathir faced even more tests. He was tested when Umno was banned in 1987. The Team A (and) Team B fight, remember that? What did Dr Mahathir say then? ‘Even if it is by one vote, I am still prime minister.' Which means I can use the same principle... So long as I have the support of the party, I will serve as president. So long as I have the support of the people, I will continue to serve.

Najib Razak, vowing to continue as Prime Minister and Umno President


This is Najib's chance to prove who is actually lying – he or Dr Mahathir, especially as his former boss got his facts wrong about the speaker's resignation.

1MDB’s missing billions

The RM42 billion is not lost. There, the 70 acres TRX and 500 acres Bandar Malaysia lands.

Najib Razak, insisting that 1MDB’s RM42 billion was not lost


Based on the latest available financial statements of 1MDB as at March 31, 2014, the two parcels of land are worth only RM5.83 billion.  How could RM5.83 billion be boasted and inflated to justify 1MDB’s RM42 billion debt? Secondly, Najib Razak failed to inform the audience that the respective piece of land was purchased for only RM194 million and RM1.67 billion from the government. The cost to 1MDB was a meagre total of RM1.86 billion!

Tony Pua, Petaling Jaya Utara MP


Is this an admission that the RM42 billion was spent and now 1MDB has to depend on the development of TRX and Bandar Malaysia in order to settle its debts. RM42 billion is a huge amount. If the amount is used properly, 1MDB can develop TRX on its own without having to sell land to Lembaga Tabung Haji.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS vice president




This is a humanitarian crisis that is critical. Malaysia ought to come up with concrete solutions. It’s useless if we only beat our chests that we are Asean chair, but at the same time fail to solve the issue that is happening at our very borders.

Mahfuz Omar, PAS information chief, chiding Prime Minister Najib Razak for paying lip service to the Rohingya refugee crisis


We can't send the wrong signal, that they (the refugees) can come here and be welcomed [...] because then hundreds of thousands will come here like what happened during the Vietnam (war).

Muhyiddin Yassin, Deputy Prime Minister, insisting that the Rohingya refugee is a delicate one to handle
