The former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that there is no escaping the issue of money in politics. He said “There can be no escaping from the fact that politics is money. You see, without money you just cannot move. Because of the inherent link between politics and money, Umno has had to raise money from members of the public, resulting in rent-seeking behaviour. People in Malaysia don't need much persuasion. They believe if they contribute, they might get some leverage,”
He added that “So when election comes, people just come... and the money taken is sometimes without receipt. “So, it depends on whether you're going to be honest or not. Vote-buying has been prevalent during the party's triennial elections and accused “practically everyone” elected into the supreme council of using such means. So you can say that Umno central committee is actually made up of corrupt people,”
Referring to the incident in 2006 when he was not elected to be one of the 7 delegates of the Kubang Pasu division to attend Umno’s AGM, he said “I lost. Because Umno headquarters sent money to pay all those people not to vote for me. The division leader got RM2,000, each member RM200. I was disgusted, you know? RM200, I'm so cheap? How much can you buy with RM200, how much food, how many plates of mee? You sell the power to determine the leader for RM200?”
