Rule of Law: A need for vision
The Edge Markets
In the period leading up to the last general election, Malaysians were told that race relations were a priority and that we would see a lessening of racial politics in the governance of this nation if Pakatan Harapan (PH) were allowed to install a new government in Putrajaya.
This was implicit in the coalition’s stated commitment to inter-racial and inter-religious harmony. Its manifesto further declared, unequivocally, its desire “to work with everyone to pursue a continuous agenda of reform in order to create a future that is better and beneficial to all — developed, peaceful, harmonious — that is guided by shared values such as knowledge, liberty, truth, social and economic justice, pride, civilisation, unity, merit-based society and democracy”.
