DAP’s directive to PKR

Although Hee Loy Sian has submitted the notice, we hope that he can withdraw it.

Motion of no-confidence against Najib

Given the problems mentioned, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has affected the country's image in the world and caused investors to lose confidence in the government, to the extent the economy has become unstable, (with) the share market declining badly as well as the fall of the value of the ringgit against the US dollar.

Hee Loy Sian, Petaling Jaya Selatan MP, on why he submitted a notice for the tabling of a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak


Items 1 and 2 are government motions, 3 and 4 are bills, and 7 to 28 are private member's bills by the MPs. There are also five bills scheduled for their first reading tomorrow. So the consideration on motions will be done according to the Standing Order 15 (1), which states that at every sitting, government matters will be settled before other matters.

14th GE

We are a national party and we contest nationwide...we had been contesting (in the general elections) even before DAP existed. We are not a state party nor a racist party.

Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS president




To us, Amanah is no big threat to PAS, which had faced much bigger threats than this, especially in 1978, which resulted in the people in Kelantan holding demonstrations which caused the downfall of the PAS state government. Nevertheless, we could continue with our struggle well, and we not only managed to increase our party membership and but to also improve the party's administration.

Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS president




We are thankful to Allah that today’s programme have been successful thus far. We have over 100,000 people attending from across the country, who came on motorcycles.

Takiyuddin Hassan, PAS secretary general



Raising tolls

We will do whatever is necessary for the people, but because we are in government, we cannot take the populist approach all the time. The reality is that we have to deliver. The opposition, they say all sorts of things but when they are in government, (the fees) go up anyway […] So sometimes we have to increase. We have no choice. If not, you pay compensation. It’s like the toll.

Najib Razak, Prime Minister, taking a swipe at the opposition state governments, saying that even they found it necessary to raise charges imposed on the people
