It is up to their dignity. They took the Bai'ah Oath as PAS elected reps. They took the oath, made the promise. So they should resign and vacate their seats.

Umno and Malays
Some people say that the Malays will be defeated, beaten or fall flat on the ground but I choose the word 'bastardise' (Terbangsat). he Malays and Muslims would lose everything if Umno loses power.

SB deputy director
They may be worried about my loyalty to carry out a certain agenda. I am a professional and whatever I investigate, that is exactly what I will produce. We will not change the report to say otherwise. We will reveal the truth of the matter, and perhaps they don’t like that and want to hear something nice instead. They want to ‘syok sendiri’ (kid themselves).

Vote of no confidence
Najib’s strategy is instead of trying to avoid or stop the attempt to push for a vote of no confidence against him he will exploit that move to his advantage. Once they successfully pass a vote of no confidence he will go before His Majesty the Agong and ask that Parliament be dissolved. The state governments would not be affected, they would remain. According to the Federal Constitution, the Agong must act on the advise of the Prime Minister. So the Agong will consent to the dissolution of Parliament and federal elections can be held in all the 222 parliamentary constituencies. Najib will then use this election to do some spring-cleaning and purge the party of those who are against him. Of course, none of his detractors will be given a seat to contest. So that will end their political career.
Raja Petra Kamaruddin, Malaysia Today owner, predicting what would happen if a vote of no confidence is passed on Prime Minister Najib Razak
As Home Minister I had received accurate information about what they intended to do and put a stop to it. Their plan was to set up a unity government. But their real aim was to seize power through the back door.
Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister, insisting that the government could have been toppled by undemocratic means if no steps had been taken to prevent it from happening
First of all, I would like to remind the minister that there is a huge difference between DEIG and RM2.6 billion ‘donation’. DEIG is a new GLC that has not started operation but the RM2.6 billion has been proven to be ‘donated’ into Najib’s personal account. Secondly, the DEIG issue was raised by a select committee with six of the seven committee members are government backbenchers. On the other hand, the RM2.6 billion “donation” was exposed by international newspaper WSJ.

RM2.6 billion donors
Those were the answers given to me when I asked them the reason for their donation. They also told me that Malaysia was not the only country they have donated money to. They have also helped other Islamic countries.
