Expect this to come from a man who famously told Kayveas off that Umno can rule Malaysia without other support... however, he was lucky that he is still ruling Malacca but, it is Idiots as these that makes Malaysia a recipe for disaster.
Here he again talks of Umno must dictate government policy. Well so he says, in order to regain lost support. He is still sticking to his guns that Umno does not need anybody else to rule Malaysia. I really wonder why all the other lap dogs in BN is doing... I forgot.. they were just that.. and all you need to do is to give a reward for their obedience... a big juicy bone...
"This situation causes Umno members to lose their morale because the party agenda and manifesto is not effectively implemented. Party decisions need to be implemented and if this is done, we can resolve a lot of problems.
Malays = Umno? So, the issue here isn't really that the manifesto is implemented for ALL Malays but for Umno members.... can you all see this fler's argument?
"If Barisan Nasional wishes to regain the confidence of the Malays, the concept of parti menguasai kerajaan (the party heading the government) must be looked at seriously," he said.
Why such perversion? Again! Malays = Umno = BN?
But seriously, I hope for the sake of Malaysia, Umno is populated by only these racoons... and let the smart, clever, intelligent ones leave them for dead and together with other Malaysians start building a more dynamic and progressive country for all.
While this fler froth in the mouth championing what he thought to be his own ketuanan, here we have a very learned man talks about non-discrimination and propagating all inclusive development... Raja Nazrin speaks of it .. HERE.
Governments can no longer afford to formulate policies, laws and regulations on a discriminatory basis and in an ethical vacuum, said Perak Raja Muda Raja Nazrin Shah said.
“No segment of society must be disrespected, discredited and disenfranchised. No group should feel that their efforts and contributions go unrecognised and unwanted.
“We must abandon the ‘silo’ mentality where we only look up at what is happening and not beside us at what others are experiencing,” Raja Nazrin said at the 21st LawAsia Conference.
Bringing this about is one of the greatest challenges of governance today. For this reason, he said that there was case for empowering through the principle of inclusiveness.
“Only inclusive development through empowerment can societies become strong and we can achieve lasting outcomes,” he told lawyers, judges and students of law in his keynote address.
He said that not empowering citizens could lead to “a deep sense of alienantion and hostility” that could cause “ rash acts of violence that fracture societies.”
"This is bad and insensitive politics."
“We cannot morally turn our backs on the fundamental responsibility of ensuring that all stakeholders in our society, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, have a place under the sun.”
“But closing two eyes to the problem does not help build the unity and integration required to face the economic and social turmoil that is likely to result. “Empowerment is a precondition for an integrated and progressive Asia. Interestingly enough, the forces that can connect Asia also have the potential to empower its people.”
He cited five areas that could empower Asia.
“The first prerequisite of empowerment must be to strengthen the rule of law. The law has the capacity to unite and enfranchise the people of Asia like no other.
“The second source of empowerment is greater political participation. One of the essential tasks of Asia’s leaders is to convert residents into citizens and citizens into stakeholders.
“It is only when citizens are also stakeholders will there be the widest sense of ownership of problems and challenges. In order for Asian countries to weather this storm, governance systems must be broadly based and consultative to minimise non-cooperative behaviour.”
A third prerequisite for empowerment is that values and beliefs need to be changed and this is never a straightforward task.
A fourth source of empowerment is technology, particularly information and communication technology.
A fifth source of empowerment is education that breaks the chains of oppressive traditions and extremism.
“Education has paved the way for many to find their way out of poverty and for countries to sharpen their competitive edge,” Raja Nazrin added.
Unfortunately, he said that good quality education was still a dream for many.
1. Strengthen the rule of law - ISA, sedition law, police being the tool of the government of the day.
2. Greater political participation - Umno controls ALL.... the rest, biasala... read the above story..
3. Values and belief need to be changed - Hindraf, conversion, meritocracy..... need I list down more?
4. Technology - 11.13billion broadband contract probably 1/2 of it is "commission" just like the eurocopter deal...
5. Education - National Service, Education Curriculum that focuses on religious studies more than sciences... quality of teachers.. free falling status of local universities.... squabbling over uni places each year...
I wonder if Raja Nazrin speaks of all these with reference to his own observation of the state of his country or was he enlightened by the progress and success reaped by countries that practised the above fair values?
