Citizens’ Declaration - Horses’ Mouths – 14 March 2016

Harakahdaily - TS | .

Citizens’ Declaration

We don't need Mahathir to remove (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) and Umno. Najib will go away from natural causes eventually. They don't want to get rid of Umno. Mukhriz said they want to change Najib but not Umno or BN, so Pakatan Harapan is being used so that Umno can continue ruling.

Abdul Razak Ismail, Otai Reformasi working secretary


When he was the party president he said he got the support from his people. He taught us to be respectful to the leaders. When he stepped down he said he is going to show his support to others. But, look, now he works with the opposition. This is crazy.

Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Umno secretary general, slamming Dr Mahathir for working with opposition on Citizens’ Declaration


This is a dead end. This is just a clash between Mahathir and Najib. We have been fighting against both of them. Why is it that now we must choose between them?

Working with Najib

We will not work together if doing so will bring losses to the country and the people.

Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, PKR president, stressing that she is willing to team up with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in order to "Save Malaysia"


I am prepared to work with any Malaysian to Save Malaysia, not only Dr Mahathir and Muhyiddin, but even with Najib if the prime minister is prepared to admit that he had led the country on a wrong tangent and that Malaysia must be saved with far-reaching democratic and institutional reforms.

Lim Kit Siang, DAP advisor



Adenan’s joke

Thank you, all corners of Sarawak, you have been to. The only thing left is that he can't speak Iban yet. He can speak Bahasa Malaysia, English but not Iban. I have advised him, if he wants to find a new wife, go find an Iban. I'm just kidding. Just kidding.

Adenan Satem, Sarawak chief minister, suggesting that the Prime Minister find an Iban wife



Detaining reporters

On behalf of the government and the Home Ministry, I do not hinder any local or foreign journalist from covering any events or interviewing any leaders. The journalism profession has its ethics... but when they cross the line we have to ensure our VVIPs are protected using security measures.
