Bersatu manifesto to ‘chase down every penny’ from 1MDB

Bersatu manifesto to ‘chase down every penny’ from 1MDB

Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad has outlined the party’s manifesto for the next general election.

It includes recovering every penny that has allegedly been ever “stolen” from 1MDB and the government if they win, he said.

“We will investigate very thoroughly the 1MDB money which has been misappropriated.

“We will chase down every penny from 1MDB and the government which was (allegedly ) stolen, which we know are in the hands of certain individuals,” he said, to great applause from the 5,000-strong crowd at the party’s official launch in Shah Alam last night.

Earlier, when Mahathir asked rhetorically what their new government would do if they were to win the 14th general election and form a government, the attentive crowd immediately started chanting, “Tangkap Najib” (Arrest Najib).

At the launch, Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin also said they would ensure stolen money from 1MDB is returned to Malaysia, claiming this is something BN has failed to do until today.

He added if they are given the mandate to rule, he would like to form a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to investigate 1MDB and to bring those involved to justice.

‘GST to go’

Muhyiddin also said the rakyat’s main concern now is the economy, he said, so they would reexamine the country’s economic policies to try to control the rising costs of living and focus on fixing the country’s economy.

Mahathir, meanwhile, said that they will get rid of the GST in stages to be eventually replaced with a sales tax, which received loud cheers and applause from the crowd.

They would try to fix the value of the Malaysian ringgit in a more effective manner without further burdening the rakyat, he said.

Mahathir also spoke out against certain foreign investments in Malaysia, saying that they would scrutinise massive land deals involving foreigners with the intention of placing their countrymen there.
