2016 Budget

My constituents (in Bandar Tun Razak) voted for me to do the right thing so I am doing the right thing, from my perspective. I can meet my constituents and tell them that this is what I feel was right. I am not doing things on behalf of other people. I am doing things on behalf of them (constituents).

Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, former Selangor MB, on why he voted the 2016 Budget


No, that means we support the government programmes for the year. It (the Budget) was presented by the minister of finance, who is the prime minister.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Gua Musang MP


Yes, we will call them up and have a chat over coffee, about their action. It is not a serious matter and does not constitute disciplinary action against them.

Donation to political parties

But if there are requests for such financial contributions from the parties, then it will be treated the same way as contributions by non-governmental organisations, which is in accordance to the financial needs of the said organisation and the available balance for CSR at the time of the request.

PKR’s advice to DAP

I stick to a different stance than that of the DAP top leadership, which is that there is nothing to gain if remain confrontational with PAS. This is because our final objective is to ensure one-on-one fights (in the next general election), and this can only be done if they (PAS and DAP) are involved, too.

It has been too taxing on them in the High Court.
