PAS seats

When cooperating with Parti Negara, we gave up our seats to them. When cooperating with PKR, we helped them with the election machinery. And now, they are asking us to cooperate with the new coalition, meaning that we need to give up our seats. That will never happen.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS deputy president, stressing that the party will not give up its seats even to an opposition party in the next general election



No worry

We have faced far larger political parties in the past including parties, which have had the support of the Federal Government, like that of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Front (Berjasa) and the Muslim People's Party of Malaysia (Hamim).

Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS president, on Pakatan Harapan



New enemy

Don’t focus too much on Umno and Barisan as we have a new threat besides them.

Iskandar Samad, PAS vice president, cautioning the party to be wary of new enemies apart from their traditional nemesis BN-Umno



Herd mentality policy

There is no more concept of agreeing to disagree and it will no longer be used.

Rafizi Ramli, PKR secretary general, announcing that the "agree to disagree" concept will not be carried over to Pakatan Harapan



Najib’s health

I'm recovering well, thank you for the kind thoughts. See you soon.

Najib Razak, saying he is recovering well from a minor surgery



Fiscal policy committee

The year will be a challenging one because we did not expect the oil prices to drop from US$48 to US$31.

Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, Deputy Finance Minister,  on "recalibrating" Budget 2016



RM1 million offer rejected

After I turn down the RM1mil offer, the man was furious and said I was 'stupid' for rejecting that much money. But for me, those who lease their land to bauxite operators are the real losers as the money can only last for a while, and their land will not return to its previous condition.
