Building Hope in Malaysia
For those of you that know me, you know that I am not a politician, at least not in the same vein as some of the politicians that you either love or love to hate in Malaysia.
What I can tell you though is that I am a Malaysian who cannot stand to stay in the sidelines anymore.
In my previous role as the founder of a think tank, I did my best to help advise both the Federal and State governments. Using our research work, we helped provide a fact-based approach to improve policies in Malaysia. But in 2015, we were struck by the biggest scandal to ever hit our country with $700 million deposited into Prime Minister Najib Razak’s account. What’s worse is that when investigations occurred our Cabinet, Parliament, institutions and even media were threatened and compromised.
I am joining politics, because if I didn’t, it would be the single biggest regret in my life – that I was given an opportunity to create real change in Malaysia, but didn’t try to make a difference.
What I want is for each and every person to have pride in our country again. Malaysia is the best country in the world, but there has been so much politics and fighting, that we have forgotten how beautiful our country is. I believe that there is still hope. If we give up now we lose our chance to make things right.
If elected, these are the promises that I commit to.
I really believe and know, that together it is possible to build a Malaysia that we can all be proud of.
