Mukhriz in danger

The entire state Umno leadership and elected representatives gathered here today hereby announce that we have lost confidence in the leadership of Mukhriz Mahathir as Kedah Umno liaison chief and as Kedah menteri besar.

My position as menteri besar is based on the mandate and trust the rakyat has given to me and also the consent of the Kedah sultan following the recommendation of the prime minister.

You don't remove the son just because you don't like the father.

Zaid Ibrahim, former law minister, castigating Umno for attempting to remove Mukhriz Mahathir as Kedah menteri besar due to his father's actions


There is no personal agenda except for the desire to strengthen the state Umno.

Mahdzir Khalid, Education Minister and Padang Terap MP, insisting that there is no personal agenda in Kedah Umno’s call for the Prime Minister to make an immediate change to the state leadership



Dr M’s retaliation

I have not given up because I feel this (objective) is an important thing in our country. Najib's administration has caused the country's decline in economy, politics, science, technology and knowledge. All areas are declining.

SRC credit cards

I cannot confirm as it is an ongoing investigation.

Mohd Shukri Abdull, Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy chief, declining to comment on whistleblower website Sarawak Report's latest allegations against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak



JPA scholarship

The prime minister understands that the economy is not good at the moment and the people are facing heavy burden so he has instructed the chief secretary to the government and JPA to come up with a new solution. I can't say for certain if there will be a change of decision but we (MCA) have tried our best to appeal the matter because we don't know how the economic situation will develop.
