Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Datuk Seri Rais Yatim today and says that he is ready to debate the new Minister of Information, Communication and Culture.
Zaid's only conditions are that Rais has to specify exactly what he wants to debate and that it has to be televised.
"Yes, I will debate Rais on any subject he wants, anytime and anywhere.Rais Yatim had challenged Zaid to a public debate over his allegations against Najib, as the former minister has been often quoted in the foreign media. Rais also accused the foreign media of trying to topple prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
But RTM must show it otherwise it is a waste of time."
"However, we must study (the situation) and if I have the chance, I want to have a debate with those trying to implicate our leader with unbecoming and nonsensical words," Rais said.
