Umno presidents

Umno leaders are not like prophets who were maksum(infallible). All Umno presidents had committed wrongs (kesalahan).

Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Bera MP, reminding Dr Mahathir Mohamad that he had also erred when he was the Umno president




I humbly apologise for offending anyone including women with my inappropriate analogy at the event. As head of staff, a husband and a father, I always respect women’s contribution to the country and to myself, in high regard… I regret what happened and this will be a lesson for me. I hope the matter will no longer be prolonged.

Mustapa Mohamad, International Trade and Industry Minister, expressing regret for making a “sexist” remark at a townhall meeting by likening the new ministry building to an “inexperienced virgin”



Dr M and Umno AGM

I have not received any letter from the party but I deem the words from him (Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi) as being an invitation.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, announcing that he will be attending the Umno general assembly next month although he has yet to receive an invitation to the event



Charge sheet against Najib

I said it was still under investigations.

Nur Jazlan, Deputy Home Minister


Since the existence of the charge sheet has yet to be proven, do you agree with me it is not proper for Najib to remain as prime minister if there is an investigation against him as he has powers over many offices.

Gobind Singh Deo, Puchong MP



1MDB’s deal

Lands were sold to 1MDB cheaply because 1MDB is 100 percent owned by the Finance Ministry. The transaction is akin to coming out of the right pocket and going into the left pocket.

Salleh Keruak, Communications and Multimedia Minister, defending against a slew of criticism levelled by former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the government, including the cheap sales of government land to 1MDB



KLIA Ekspres fare

This is the first revision since ERL commenced operations almost 14 years ago. The revision was approved by the government through Land Public Transport Commission (Spad) in accordance with Section 120 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
