Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 14 Feb 2019
It is not funny anymore. GE14 raised hopes of a new progressive approach to developing the country. Yet the Prime Minister’s revival of his former failed projects is blatantly not relevant to the country’s most pressing needs. These can no longer be taken lightly as the quaint attempts by an aging politician to salvage his damaged pride after these projects were axed by the Badawi and Najib administrations.

Is this what Malaysia most needs right now? Are these projects to be revived just to spite the former PMs Badawi and Najib?
