Pakatan’s dead?

Pakatan is not dead, only 'pengsan' (fainted).

Mustafa Ali, former PAS secretary general


Who says Pakatan Rakyat no longer exists? If the wife has problems with her husband, will they be awkward? Just sit down and discuss.

Azmin Ali, PKR deputy president, denying that the opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat no longer existed


I have followed the latest developments that have impacted the formal Pakatan Rakyat coalition. However, in substance, the cooperation between the three parties at state and parliamentary level to oppose greed and injustices by BN still goes on.

Anwar Ibrahim, former Opposition Leader


Despite Pakatan having been dissolved at the national level, the mutual decision we take together, with DAP and PAS, is that it is best to continue political cooperation in the form of a coalition government at the state level.

Rafizi Ramli, PKR secretary general




The desire of the Selangor people remains the same. They want the three parties to get their act together. They have voted for this government and given it a two-thirds majority. Even when not under the flag of Pakatan Rakyat, it still does not absolve PKR, DAP and PAS of their responsibility of having a workable government specifically for the people of Selangor.

Khalid Samad, Shah Alam MP




To all my criticisms, 1MDB can only say that they are all wrong. But there are no proofs given. The answer is always about secrecy of government matters.

Ringgit slump

Global developments would include the investor expectations relating to monetary policies of major central banks and the trends in crude oil and gas prices. Domestic factors include concerns about government linked entities and ratings related issues. While external developments are beyond the control of any open economy, every effort needs to be undertaken to bring about resolution to the domestic issues that confront our economy.
