There have been several reports of corruptions among the high-profile individuals and wastages of taxpayer’s money to corruptions being reported lately.
This would undoubtedly lead to Malaysians having thoughts of the incompetencies of our country’s administration and sought for reforms in the systems.
Some were even of the opinion that the system is far beyond a repair and we need a great reset to clean things up.
According to Astro Awani, Tan Sri Nazir Tun Razak, Chairman of Ikhlas Capital and brother to Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has pointed this out in a letter to the King and has suggested the government to form a ‘Better Malaysia Assembly’ to help reform the country’s administration.
Nonetheless, Nazir isn’t alone and the Muar Member of Parliament (MP) Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman has backed the suggestion to form the assembly to reform rebuild Malaysia again.
In a Facebook post, Syed said “Malaysia needs a ‘wake up call’ with a progressive overhaul of the national system, especially on policy formulation, institutional reform and nationhood. Unfortunately, this has been ignored so much that it has to, some extent, delayed the development of the country which has caused political, economic and social instability, especially in these several years.”
“The government today had failed to listen to the people’s grievances for the sake of national development. I am also disappointed when the Dewan Rakyat fails to debate important and progressive issues and only prioritises materialistic issues that do not bring any benefit to the country.”
According to Nazir, the ‘Better Malaysia Assembly’ is only the first step towards ‘rebuilding’ Malaysia. The proposal discusses how Malaysia’s democracy, institutions and economy should function.
In addition, they will be discussing on issues related to the electoral system, political financing, Federal-State relations, the role of institutions, affirmative action and education.
Syed Saddiq believes that the Better Malaysia Assembly may be able to reinstill the necessary qualities and values needed for the development of Malaysia’s administration.
“Throughout my tenure as a Minister, I have strife to give people as young as 18 the right to vote, raised the minimum wage and quality of life for the people, provide over 350,000 new job opportunities and most importantly, bring back the long-neglected national integrity.”
“I believe that this group that supports the Better Malaysia Assembly consists of experienced members and non-patisans who can introduce comprehensive and fair policies for all Malaysians,” he added.
Meanwhile, those who supported for the Better Malaysia Assembly includes Professor Dato’ Dr. Adeeba Kamarulzaman, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, Tan Sri Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, Nur Qyira Yusri, Dr. Khor Swee Kheng, Vinesh Sinha, Nadhir Ashafiq and many more.
“I believe with the spirit, ideas and experience of the members of the assembly, we can solve the root cause that has long plagued this country.”
