1MDB debate for public to understand issues, says Tony Pua


(The Malaysian Insider) – DAP lawmaker Tony Pua said his decision to debate 1Malaysia Development Berhad president Arul Kanda Kandasamy was for the benefit of the people and their understanding of issues involving the state-owned investor.

“It does not matter who wins or loses in the debate or talk show with Arul. What is important is that the information can be put out there so the people can have a better understanding of the 1MDB issue,” said Pua.

He said the 1MDB scandal was a black mark against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s leadership.

He said if the issue was not explained properly and correctly, it could have a negative impact on the economy and efforts to revive it.
