TPPA - Horses’ Mouths – 25 January 2016

Harakahdaily - TS | .


We hope that everyone, the National Fatwa Council must make a statement opposing TPPA. The National Fatwa Council cannot remain silent and only speak out on food and drink issues.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS deputy president, urging the National Fatwa Council to issue a statement against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement


We have done many things for the long term interest of the country. For example, the construction of Putrajaya, the Petronas Twin Towers and the Penang Bridge. There were many objections in the beginning to all of these, but in the end, the people understood.

Mustapa Mohamed, International Trade and Industry Minister, insisting that the government is capable of managing the various negative perception of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA)


I think today’s turn-out was as expected.

PKR-DAP war in Sarawak

Are we to wait in our comfort zones for PKR to start really going to the rural areas to bring political awareness? It would be irresponsible for us to wait.Chong Chieng Jen, Sarawak DAP chairman, stressing that the party is in competition with PKR


I feel that the statement he made was uncalled for because as Sarawak DAP secretary, Ling should have raised the issue at the Pakatan Harapan secretariat. Ling also congratulated PKR over the officiating of its Senadin operations centre, saying it will strengthen DAP when the party contests there. This is confusing and belittles PKR's efforts in Senadin all this while.
