Better Together

Fellow Malaysians,

As we are all know, we are living in a very unique and diverse nation.
We are different by cultures, religion, race, gender, and many other gaps between us. Nevertheless, it is this diversity in us that makes us unique as one.

But since some time ago, we were very much divided. We were divided due to the actions of certain irresponsible politicians that divided us for obvious political reasons.

Those irresponsible actions have instigated a thought that we are divided by race, religion or gender.

As a matter of fact, we are not. But we are divided by politics. Politics have divided us for too long. And politics does not have to divide us.

Many of us were told that the logic is either we have to be pro-government or anti-government. It seems that we cannot stand in between. It seems that there can be no middle-ground.

This has caused partisanship at all levels. Partisanship has divided us extremely. And this extreme partisanship has been crippling the government to function.

And every politician from both sides bears this responsibility.

Partisanship in our nation has caused many issues among each other.

There is too much of pointing fingers at each other.

There is too much of blaming each other.

There is too much of shouting at each other.

There is too much of making fun of each other.

Yes, and we are too focused in toppling each other.

Our choices, when deciding a nation’s future, shouldn’t be political.

Our choices and decision aren’t supposed to be between left or right; liberal or conservative.

It is not between Malay, Chinese, Indian or any other races.

It is definitely not between Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Harapan or any political party.

It has to be a choice of a politics that will work for our nation.

We need a politics that focuses on bringing people together across party lines to work for the common good.

We need a politics that reconnects Malaysian with their government and offers a voice to the government leaders that cannot be ignored.

We need a politics that works the nation, and makes the nation works.

We need a politics that brings us together instead of tearing us apart.

We need to be Better Together; a better politics, a better nation, a better city, a better us. For a better future.

And we can only be Better Together.
