  • What a hypocrite? When BN was in power, the PAC Chairman was the NP for Rompin. Then the opposition members did not threaten to withdraw. Why now UMNO wants out?

  • Until the opposition learns to be behave and mature in outlook , then it is appropriate that they head the PAC but if every purpose is to protest and sabotage the PAC to make PH ineffective then it serve no purpose for opposition to be PAC Chairman. The latest scuffle of Najib Lieutenant in rough handling of the students shows that opposition are far form a desire form where only thuggery and violence are their ability only shows thei their inability to even have a proper discussions.. Let Mahatir do it his way but have to ensure he does not go overboard. DAP and Amanah has got to be vocal as many now are seeing the silence of both parties as pandering to the old fox in keeping peace and status quo. It does both parties no good as too many disapointments and dismal performance are turning away supporters who are seeig Bersatu, PKR and even Amanah MPs and the nominated MBS very very very incompetent.
