Pakatan Rakyat

When differences are enlarged, then the common ground will shrink. If this continues, it will definitely kill the cooperation. On the other hand, if common understanding are enlarged, then differences can be shrunk. Then the cooperation can be retained and enhanced. This is the attitude that should be maintained if Pakatan Rakyat wants to continue to exist.

Local council elections

In the politics of managing a town, we should consider all quarters and sections (of society) which contribute to the town’s prosperity. Therefore, the local government elections championed by DAP returns to an old mistake which only looks to the towns to win elections in a short time.

It is 50 years down the road and Malaysians are entitled to ask why they should continue to be denied local government election, when it is accepted as a basic democratic right of citizens in countries committed to a democratic way of life.

Vision 2020

I suggest (that the government) be extra careful in spending. The government should study if what they are spending on now is necessary. A lot of the allocation is not necessary.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, predicting that Malaysia will still be able to achieve Vision 2020 to become a developed nation if the government is prepared to reduce and be frugal with its spending


Nik Aziz’s health

The tablets taken by my father are also to boost his energy and he has been
showing some positve reaction from taking the medicines. Alhamdulillah (thanks be to God), my father is comfortable with the medicines, although he is not undergoing chemotherapy.
