Rebuilding a torn nation
The Federal Cabinet is formed and it is now back to serious work for our ministers. It is refreshing to see the enthusiasm and excitement in their faces, as each new minister walked into his office for the first time. They are used to be in the opposition all these years yelling their idealistic views to be heard and opposing the policies of the ruling BN. They engage in shouting matches with the government MPs and stage walkouts in protest when things don’t go their way.
Today they are placed in the seats of power, in positions to make important decisions and policies that affect the people and country. They may take time to get accustomed to their new role and the “magic” of the power invested in their hands. Will they be able to remain steadfast to their ideals they preached while in the opposition? If yes for how long?
To the people too we are experiencing something new we have never experienced before, a brand new government totally different from the previous one. A new government that promised drastic reforms to rejuvenate our dying democratic system.
We wish the new cabinet members all the best in their service to the people who put them up there. Let them never forget their oath which they took in front of the King and watched by millions of rakyat; their priority should always be the people never themselves
The new PH government must be different from the previous government.PH came to power not overnight by chance or luck but after 20 years of struggle since 1998, when their "Reformasi" movement was formed to defend DSAI. They must not forget this struggle that was painful and trying for them and the people who faithfully supported them to make our vision of a “Malaysia Baharu” a reality today. There is a great deal of excitement and expectation among the people about this “Malaysia Baharu” and we hope our leaders will never let us down.
