The people

The people are not stupid.

Muhyiddin Yassin, Umno deputy president, reminding his party to stop lying to the people



Najib Razak

I suggest that the prime minister take a rest. Take a rest so that investigations can be carried out freely, transparently and fairly and no one is seen to be interfering. Take a rest until investigations are over. If nothing wrong is found, he can continue his duties as prime minister. This will help restore confidence in the PM and in Umno. We pray that the PM is not involved, that he can return to continue serving as PM. We can restore confidence in his image.

Muhyiddin Yassin, Umno deputy president, calling his president to take a rest and let investigation on 1MDB to continue without interference




The state government and the Ministry of the Natural Resources and Environment will make an announcement soon. Do not worry, it will be for the good of the people.

Adnan Yaakob, Pahang Menteri Besar, announcing that the federal and state government will announce a plan for dealing with bauxite mining activities in the state by the end of this month



Budget 2016

The 2016 allocation under the National Budget to Sarawak is not sufficient. Tidak cukup. The state is in real need of a Federal helping hand in granting more allocation to enable us to catch up. Sarawak should not be left behind

Adenan Satem, Sarawak chief minister, criticising the small allocation in Budget 2016 for the state



Nurul Izzah ban

It's unfortunate. Nurul was being less than sensitive. We considered her actions unpatriotic. Since Sabah has taken action, what's wrong for us to follow suit?

Abdullah Saidol, Sarawak Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club chairman, claiming PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar was banned from Sarawak because of photos showing her with Jacel Kiram, the daughter of self-styled Sulu “sultan” Jamalul Kiram III



National Security Council Bill (NSC)

If a bomb exploded in KL then perhaps you guys would have a different view. But sadly that would be too late #NSC.

To hear Ku Li make this statement when he has been speaking from the right side of the fence for so many years is frankly shocking and disappointing. Is he saying that Najib will not abuse the new law?

Zaid Ibrahim, former law minister, onTengku Razaleigh Hamzah's stand regarding the controversial National Security Council (NSC) Bill where he argued the people would accept the bill as long as it is not abused
