RM2.6 billion donation to Najib’s account
As someone who receives his salary from the rakyat, the PM must explain to his boss the source of the RM2.6 billion that was transferred into his accounts. It is better for the people to know who the donor is to avoid accusations and suspicions as to whether the PM is working for the donor or for the people.

We got to know the donor's information from bank documents and letters sent to the Prime Minister when large sums were deposited into his account.

We would also like to state that we would be calling prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to give an explanation on the donation he received.

Things might be slightly different now, but going by past experience, when a standing politician loses his position in the government, he also loses a great deal of influence. What may be seen as an initial, emotional outpouring of support or opposition to the boss will normally fizzle out, because people will start to weigh the cost of opposition.

Now is the crucial hour for all opposition parties to unite. This is the time opposition political parties sit together to find common ground and minimise their differences. There can be many formulas (to achieve this).
