A civil society coalition is demanding fair access to the mainstream media for all political parties and a Najib-Anwar debate so that voters can make an informed choice. Christopher Chong reports.
It is a real pity that Najib has turned down Anwar’s challenge to debate their economic policies, says P Ramakrishnan. Najib’s decision has not taken anyone by surprise but Malaysians are disappointed that the premier has failed to justify his criticism of Pakatan’s plan through a televised national debate.
Tonight at 9.00pm on TV9
Civil society organisations welcome the coming debate of Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek and PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on the fuel price increase. This nationally televised debate will provide an opportunity for the public to listen to the pros and cons of the recent price increase which has affected all segments of Malaysian society, especially the poor and lower middle classes.
response to the welcome announcement by the Penang Chief Minister on
17January that the state government has directed that the proposed PGCC
project be reviewed and scaled down, the PGCC Campaign Group urgently
calls on BN and Opposition candidates to debate the issues raised by
the PGCC mega project.
