Defining moment for Permatang Pauh voters

Permatang Pauh's duty to all Malaysians

On the eve of the Permatang Pauh by-election,Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has once again revealed his vision for Malaysia,

"I want Malaysia to be free and democratic, with a vibrant economy... transparent and accountable."

His dream is shared by millions of truly patriotic and peace-loving Malaysians of all races and faiths from both Peninsula and East Malaysia.The whole nation is watching with hope that the voters of Permatang Pauh will put aside their political, racial and religious differences and elect the person who can change the nation for the better.

The nation is in a state of political and economic chaos and we need change, real change to steer the nation towards a path of peace, prosperity and racial integration. The task is momentous and we need a strong leadership to do that and from 50 years BN rule we know that it doesn’t have the political will to bring these drastic changes.

The global world is very competitive and if we need to survive, we need to pool all our resources and the talents of all Malaysians regardless of race or creed. The politics of race is becoming obsolete and it must be dismantled at all costs. Every child born is a son or daughter of this soil and must be given equal opportunities to strive and excel without discrimination or prejudice.If the cream of any community is ignored there is no way we are going to succeed in our mission to create a vibrant and competitive nation.

Now is the golden opportunity to chart a new course of our destiny.Anwar Ibrahim has provided that opportunity and we must never let it elude us for any selfish reason. The journey to a better future is monumental but together we must take the first step now. We must rally behind Anwar to start the journey now.

The voters of Permatang Pauh have a national duty tomorrow, a duty towards the 27 million Malaysians. We hope they rise up to fulfill that national duty with wisdom and patriotism,like they did on March 8.

Let us do our part by praying that God enlighten the minds of the voters of Permatang Pauh to make their choice wisely for a just future for all Malaysians.Their action of the single minute at the ballot box tomorrow will determine the future of millions of fellow citizens.
