Agong’s reminder

I hope all the honourable members will stop politicking for narrow interests as the prolonged (politicking) has exhausted the people and government. Be a good example to the people by working together to come out with views that are beneficial to the harmony of the people and the prosperity of the country. In a parliamentary democracy, we may have different views. Celebrate the space (the difference), not topple, slander and foster enmity with each other, which can lead to the downfall of the nation.

Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, urging lawmakers to cease politicking and expressed his wish for the continuation of the current administration in order to realise the goal of making Malaysia a high-income nation


The (text of the) Agong's speech is (prepared) by the government.

Lim Kit Siang, DAP advisor, pouring cold water on Agong’s advice


We are a political party; we have to play politics until the end of our life. We are politicians, not NGOs.

Mohamad Sabu, Parti Amanah Negara president, disagreeing with Agong’s advice



1MDB audit report

The final audit report on the fund management of 1MDB will no longer remain under the Act. The decision to classify the final audit report under OSA was made by Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, who is responsible to ensure the credibility of the National Audit Department. This is to avoid the report from being disclosed to unwanted quarters.

Hasan Arifin, Public Accounts Committee chairman, announcing that the final audit report on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) will no longer be classified as an official secret after being tabled in Parliament



RM2.6 bil and OSA

Is it in his terms of reference to acquire secret funds and keep it in his personal accounts? No prime minister of Malaysia has ever done this. In fact, he admits that the money is a gift to him personally, not to the government. He did not inform the government authorities about the money. It is in fact a secret from the government. He seems not to have paid taxes on this money.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, slamming the prime minister about the RM2.6 political donation, questioning the handling of such funds



Citizens’ Declaration

I did not go, I do not support (it), and I didn't even know about it.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Gua Musang MP, denying that he had signed the Citizens' Declaration



Snap election

The people today are in a state of confusion, but I believe the majority want a change in government. But the democratic system in the country requires us to go to the polls. If the government is brave, they will call for early elections because that is what the people want.

Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, PAS Youth chief, challenging Putrajaya to call for a snap election to determine whether Prime Minister Najib Razak has the people’s mandate
