Best way to remember Sanusi is to fulfill his dream for a change of government in Putrajaya in the 14GE

It is sad to receive news of Sanusi Junid’s passing this morning.

He himself said he was living on “borrowed time” and his attendance of the launch of Pakatan Harapan’s Manifesto for the 14th General Election in Shah Alam last night showed the significant progress achieved to realise his last dream of his “borrowed time” – to save Malaysia from the trajectory of a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state and to re-set nation building policies and directions to make Malaysia a success story and a world-class nation.

The best way to remember Sanusi is to fulfil his dream for a change of government in Putrajay in the 14th General Elections.

Sanusi will not be able to be with patriotic Malaysians in the 14E hustings to save Malaysia for future generations, but we know that his soul and spirit will be with us in the great uphill battle for the first power transition in six decades of the nation’s history and to start the journey for Malaysia to become a normal democracy where voters can peacefully and democratically elect the Federal Government of their choice though the ballot box in a general election without fear or threat of man-made chaos or catastrophe.

The Pakatan Harapan Manifesto launched last night was the most powerful rebuttal of the lies, falsehoods and hypocrisies coming from UMNO/BN quarters and their army of quinoa cybertroopers that the Malays will perish if UMNO is defeated.

The Malays in Penang and Selangor, just like the Chinese and Indians, had a better deal under the Pakatan State Governments in the past ten years since 2008 than when under the previous UMNO/BN rule.

Similarly, all Malaysians, whether Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans or Orang Asli will have a better life under Pakatan Harapan Federal Government after the 14th General Election as spelt out in the Pakatan Harapan 14th General Election Manifesto launched last night.

Pakatan Harapan wants to continue as the Federal Government in the 15th and 16th General Elections and in the decades after, and we are fully conscious that if Pakatan Harapan Federal Government in Putrajaya fails to deliver its promises to all Malaysians, whether Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans or Orang Asli, to have a better life, the voters have the right to reject Pakatan Harapan in future general elections and elect a replacement, including UMNO/BN if still on the political scene.

With Sanusi’s passing, the still living must continue the worthy fight which engaged him in his final years.

Condolences to the Sanusi family with the passing of a great Malaysian patriot.
