Najib’s job

The government is here to stay. I am not in a hurry to go back home for fear of losing my job or something like that.

Najib Razak, urging American fund managers to ignore the “noise” back home in Malaysia related to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) but look instead at the "real" fundamentals of a resilient economy despite the current economic volatility



Chinese envoy

If the Chinese envoy said his statement had been misinterpreted, Wisma Putra would ask him to issue an official explanation on what actually happened. Although the Chinese envoy had issued several statements in Mandarin newspapers, he should still issue an official statement to correct the perception on the visit.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister, claiming Chinese ambassador to Malaysia Dr Huang Huikang has been asked to issue an official explanation if the remarks he made during a visit to Petaling Street recently had been misinterpreted



Lempang, tampar

How can I use the word lempang and so on? That is school kids language. This reporter, I do not understand her. That is her interpretation. I am not a young boy. How can I use that kind of word! If I say something, it should suit my stature as a veteran politician. How can I use stupid words like that!

Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, Pasir Salak MP, denying that he used words such as lempang and tampar (to slap) on Chinese who highlighted complaints outside the country


Tajuddin must immediately retract his statement and apologise to the Chinese community. If he ever dares to slap any Chinese, MCA will not sit still. The Malaysian Chinese are proud of Malaysia. Anybody slandering another race is ignorant.

Koh Chin Han, MCA senator, on Tajuddin’s warning that he would slap any Chinese who complains to foreigners is “shocking” and warrants an apology



1MDB boss

From my perspective rather than getting into a war of words with politicians and former politicians, I'm not a politician, I'm a business guy. My job is to ensure that we need to monetise those assets that deliver best results for the shareholders.

Arul Kanda, 1MDB president and executive director, refusing to get into a war of words with politicians over 1MDB, as he is just a businessman


Peaceful Assembly Act 2012

Section 9(5) is valid and enforceable.

Tan Sri Md Raus Sharif, Court of Appeal judge, insisting that Section 9(5) of the PAA, which provides for a fine of up to RM10,000, did not run foul of Article 10 of the Federal Constitution



Ahmad Zahid’s son wedding

I didn’t spend money to organise the reception. I didn’t spend money for ministers and guests from Malaysia to attend the wedding. I didn’t spend money to entertain anyone because the function was not mine.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister, claiming that he did not spend a single sen for his son’s wedding reception in Jakarta on Sept 19
