LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP
As March draws close, many are looking towards the new Prime Minister to be - Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak for effective,and firm leadership. The country has clearly undergone an unprecedented five years of total uncertainty and completely new political experiences. Since March 8, 2008, it is as if the country is going through an eternal General elections. Even now, the Rakyat is perceiving that politicians are focusing more on the next General elections rather than the well being of the Rakyat.
The Rakyat has grown very weary. The economy is slowing down and is expected to become worse.
The Rakyat needs HOPE. They need LEADERSHIP to steer them through the economic storm that lurks ahead. They want an end to mindless politicking and desire real economic and social reforms that will truly benefit the Nation.
The messages are clear. The Rakyat wants CHANGE for the BETTER. They do not want any more recycled leaders who have lost their positive creativity. They are tired of rhetoric, puerile advice, dramatic speeches and political drama.
They are tired of cosmetic reforms and the rhetorical call for reforms. They want less talk and more effective action.
This is Najib's challenge - to provide leadership, to present to the People a working, transparent and effective cabinet, at least a cabinet of HOPE. To provide the Nation with a NATIONAL DIRECTION that can capture the imagination and commitment of the Rakyat.
For this to be done, you need a firm hand so that actual work of REBUILDING THE NATION can take place. Enough of theatrics.
We really have to move along.
