KUALA LUMPUR: Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) is ready to broadcast live the debate on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) between 1MDB president Arul Kanda Kandasamy and Public Accounts Committee (PAC) member Tony Pua.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said the readiness of RTM to broadcast the debate live proved the openess of his ministry.

"We can broadcast live the debate," he told Bernama.

In a statement today, Arul Kanda said he was ready for a face-off with Pua on live television on condition the Petaling Jaya Utara MP first resign from the PAC.

"I trust he will have the courage to do the right thing and resign from the PAC in order for us to have, in his words, a 'no holds barred' discussion on live television," said Arul Kanda.

Pua issued the challenge in his blog for a "live talkshow" for Arul Kanda to respond to questions on 1MDB.
