Country’s future

First, the 1MDB fiasco hangs like a Damocles sword over the country. What has happened to the investigations? It appears things have stalled... That is not good for the country as there must be serious efforts to get to the bottom of it all.

Rafidah Aziz, former Umno Wanita chief, expressing her deep sadness of all that had happened in the country




We believe that if we place MCMC under the Home Ministry, firmer action will be taken against the cyber troopers who spread their lies.

Noh Omar, Selangor Umno liaison chairman, proposing that the Malaysian Multimedia and Communications Commission (MCMC) be placed under the Home Ministry to help strengthen the Internet regulator



Puzzled Deputy Home Minister

Opposition politicians including Bersih organisers used Article 10(1)(b) of the Federal Constitution which states that every citizen has a right to assemble peacefully and without arms. But how about Article 10(2)(b) which states the right and freedom of other people like enjoying their peace, belongings, and rights to do business?

Nur Jazlan, Deputy Home Minister, lambasting the Selangor and Penang governments for not offering venues in their states to hold the Bersih rally



Inverted flag?

No, it is not a mistake, and no one got it wrong. When held horizontally in a parade, a flag must move as if it is 'flying' on a flagpole, so in the case of a parade, it is as though it is 'flying' down the street.

Michael Cheang, a social media user, explaining the pictures of the Malaysian flag being "inverted" during the National Day parade Monday surfaced on Facebook




We have to prove how DEIG has been misused for the political benefit of the state government. We must expose the weaknesses and disadvantages of the DEIG. Do not be afraid to do it for the sake of the people of Selangor.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister, calling Umno to expose the weaknesses in the setting up of the Darul Ehsan Investment Group (DEIG) for the sake of the people of Selangor



Bersih 4

You think you are so brave opposing like that? I have a similar experience in 1998, I was so stupid back then because I just wanted to go to the streets and have fun. At that time, I called for (former prime minister) Tun Dr Mahathir (Mohamad) to step down. I believe many were like me before. I will not say much about this. My opinion - it is a FOOLISH WORK, or in simpler term, STUPID WORK.

Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid, daughter of Deputy Prime Minister, slamming Bersih 4 supporters for taking it to the streets in the name of defending the country


They didn’t do it for fun. They did it to have their voices heard. They did it hope for a better nation for all Malaysians. To say otherwise is childish and she should go back to school and learn what democracy really means.

Sarajun Hoda Abdul Hassan, Bersih 2.0 deputy chairman
