Time for unity and reconciliation

There is an air of freedom and liberation in Malaysia, that the country has been given a second chance to pursue our original Malaysian Dream to be a model to the world as to how a nation of diverse races, religions, languages and cultures could be united, harmonious, democratic, progressive and prosperous, with a government of integrity guided by the principles of good governance and accountability.

We must institute reforms to restore the independence, efficiency and professionalism of national institutions which had been ravaged by the excesses and mistakes of the past.

Those who have not broken the laws of the land and have not abused their powers should have nothing to fear.

This a time for national unity and reconciliation.

All Malaysians must be given an opportunity to support the new Pakatan Harapan Governemnt to save Malaysia from kleptocracy and kakistocracy and to pursue the Malaysian Dream of a united, democratic, just and great Malaysian nation.

This is not a time for vengeance and petty-mindedness.

All Malaysians, including those who had opposed Pakatan Harapan, should be welcome to join in the Pakatan Harapan’s new but challenging journey to re-set nation building policies and directions, provided they fully endorse the Pakatan Harapan’s vision and manifesto – without any conditions whatsoever.
