Najib proposes political parties declare source of funds

SEREMBAN: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has proposed that political parties declare their source of funds.

The Prime Minister said he had made a similar proposal previously but this was shot down by the DAP.

"I will make another proposal this year.

"We (Barisan Nasional) are prepared to reveal our source of funding but the others must be prepared to do so as well," he said when opening the Seremban Umno meeting here on Saturday.

Najib said he was proposing this to ensure there was transparency.

"I am prepared to list down who my donors are but the DAP, PKR and the rest must also reveal theirs," he said adding that the DAP had its own agenda in opposing the idea previously.
