MATTERS OF FAITH AND HUMANITY


Six state elections (Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah, Penang, Negeri Sembilan and Selangor) were held on Saturday, 12 August 2023. Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s ruling coalition (Pakatan Harapan) secured victory in three states, while the conservative opposition (PAS backed by Perikatan Nasional) also seized three states. The appointments of the chief ministers and exco members by the respective coalition parties have been made. As they celebrate their victories, it is vital for each party to establish accountability, promote unity within their respective parties and refine their political platforms.


Our nation is regressing in economic, political and social affairs. It is important to reassess and review our educational system in schools, colleges and universities. The goal should be to cultivate a mature and sophisticated society, as well as to foster elite groups. Our goal is to raise new and young generations who are forward-thinking with progressive views rather than promoting conservatism and extremism. In past campaigns, whether in state or general elections, there was a lot of negative behaviour - backbiting and insulting one another. We should avoid instilling these negative attitudes in the minds of our young people.


I read an article entitled, “Anwar Should Stop Wasting Time - Conservative Malays Love Dirty Water, Poverty, Racism, Extremism and Corruption”, published by Finance Twitter on 15 August 2023. It was an exciting insight and it concluded that the PMX should focus on three areas – Economy, Education and Reforms. It is imperative that the MADANI Unity Government should start planning for their continued power and stability in the upcoming 16th General Election.


Our country’s 10th Prime Minister (PMX) launched the Malaysia MADANI slogan on 19 January 2023. The goal is to improve the administration by “prioritising matters of faith and humanity, guided by values, morals, and just and effective governance.” When he was appointed Prime Minister, he had no vision for the country but he coined the word MADANI from the acronym for a script that stands for sustainability (keMampanan), prosperity (KesejAhteran), innovation (Daya cipta), respect (HormAt), trust (KeyakiNan) and compassion (Ihsan). Our nation is urgently working towards fortifying the MADANI policy framework in order to strengthen the economy, as well as political and social issues.

In the MADANI government, every Malaysian citizen - regardless of their background - has the basic right to live in sustainable communities and environments. It is important for our society to prioritise care and compassion in all areas, to ensure equal opportunities and promote equality. Encouraging empathy is vital in creating a fair and just world for all individuals. It is also crucial to encourage mutual respect as a norm to promote inclusivity among citizens. Moreover, incorporating innovation into all aspects of national life should be embraced. The MADANI government is committed to ensuring prosperity through sustainability, transparency, and cooperation. These policies and priorities are interconnected and integrated, working together to strengthen one another.


Together, let’s work within these frameworks to heal our nation and move towards a brighter future. May God guide and assist us as we strive to live by the words of Micah 6:8, “to act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with Him.”
