National Security Council Bill - Horses’ Mouths – 3 December 2015

Mat Sabu’s allegation

After the (PAS-Amanah) crisis, everyone know that PAS has stuck to its policy, and this offshoot party (Amanah) is forced to find a claim, which is easy to be rejected not just by PAS but by the public too. If he (Mat Sabu) wants to prove it, go ahead, but I am confident he won't be able to.

Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, PAS Youth chief, on the allegation by Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) president Mohamad Sabu as PAS being infiltrated by the Islamic State (IS) militant ideology



Budget 2016

We did not discuss doing it yesterday, because you would have had to mobilise (MPs). We thought it would be a futile exercise, so let's us focus on other means.

Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Opposition leader, on why the opposition did not pursue a bloc vote to reject Budget 2016



National Security Council Bill

It is as if we will have a dictatorship.

Dr Mahathir Mohamed, expressing his dislike for the National Security Council Bill as he thinks already there is too much power


As if the prime minister does not have enough power [...] he has just given himself much more. There are also no checks and balances and it is open to abuse.

Ambiga Sreenevasan, National Human Rights Society (Hakam) president, believing the government is unleashing 'a monster' on the people with regards to the new National Security Council Bill



Dr Mahathir and Khairuddin

When people see my face, they always implicate me with him (Mahathir). (It’s) not true at all. Pertaining to my struggle to seek the truth especially with regard to 1MDB, I never discussed even a single thing with Mahathir.

Khairuddin Abu Hassan, former Umno member, denying that Dr Mahathir was behind him in his campaign against 1MDB




I want to speak, but I have been informed I cannot speak. I am not allowed to speak at (the opening of) the Wanita, Puteri and Youth (AGMs). I have also been informed that I am not allowed to be involved in the winding-up session. So I can only sit on the stage like a stump.

Muhyiddin Yassin, Umno deputy president, revealing that he has been barred from speaking at the party's general assembly during the winding-up session as well


Why does he feel like a stump? I don't know how to comment on that.
