Puad: TMJ's out-of-the-box remarks will encourage 'political integrity'
Umno supreme council member Puad Zarkashi has lauded Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Ibrahim's "out-of-the-box" remarks on football star Faiz Subri's Fifa Puskas Award victory.
Puad said the remarks were well balanced in both praising Faiz and issuing a reminder for Malaysians not to have 'false confidence' and to shed negative behaviour, such as doing things at the last minute.
"History has proven that when someone from the palace makes an out of the box remark that is also people centric, it contributes to political will and integrity, which is more effective for change," he added in a Facebook posting today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
