Election Laws Stipulate Maximum Expenditure RM100 Million

Najib has already caused irreparable damage to the country's economy, currency, political stability, inter-racial and inter-religious harmony, and most of all, our country's international standing.

The RM2.6 billion was allegedly donated to Najib for the 13th general Election polls campaign.

Malaysia’s election laws stipulate that the maximum expenditure legally permissible for a parliamentary candidate is RM200,000 while the maximum legal expenditure for a state assembly candidate is RM100,000.

With 222 parliamentary seats and 505 state assembly seats to be contested in the 13th general election, this meant that the maximum election expenditures permitted by Malaysian election laws come to RM44.4 million by all Umno-BN’s 222 parliamentary candidates and RM50.5 million by the 505 BN state assembly candidates, or a total of RM94.9 million - short of RM100 million!

But Najib has received RM2.6 billion ‘donation’ which is 26 times more than the legally permissible election expenditures for all the 222 parliamentary and 505 state assembly candidates from Barisan Nasional.

Two questions immediately arise: Firstly, are the anonymous donor/donors so ignorant of Malaysian election laws that they are prepared to donate 26 times what is legally permissible to be spent by the 222 parliamentary and 505 state assembly candidates of BN in the 13th general election? Where have the rest of the RM2.6 billion, which is over 96 percent of the donations, gone to?

Secondly, how can Najib accept RM2.6 billion donation for the 13th general election, when the maximum expenditure legally permissible for all the BN parliamentary and state assembly is less than RM100 million?
