Nothing wrong with donations given to PN, says Muhyiddin [NSTTV]

KUALA LUMPUR: There is nothing improper about donations given to Perikatan Nasional (PN) to run its election campaign.

Its chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the donations should not be questioned because they were the result of the efforts of its supporters.

"Yes, my accounts are all frozen and these are all the people's (supporters) money to help Bersatu and PN.

"Hence, why should we question (the donations given) as I don't question how much they (the Pakatan Harapan-Barisan Nasional) spent (for their campaigns)?

"I don't know where they got it from, must be from somewhere which they get to help (us) by hook or by crook," he said when met by reporters at the SMK Sungai Pusu nomination centre, today.

Muhyiddin earlier arrived with three other PN candidates, namely Datuk Seri Azmin Ali who is contesting for the Hulu Kelang state seat; Muhammad Hanif Jamaluddin for the Sungai Tua seat; and incumbent assemblyman Hilmi Idham for the Gombak Setia seat.

They arrived at the nomination centre for their respective nomination paper submission at 8.30am today.

Meanwhile, Muhyiddin, who is also Pagoh member of parliament, questioned the government's alleged "election goodies" following several announcements of cash aid in the past week.

"All of a sudden now you have the money. See, this is what (Prime Minister) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been doing all the time.

"He makes promise after promise despite the fact that people have been waiting without receiving anything.

"But suddenly all these (cash aids) are being done within two weeks' time."
