Razaleigh: A neat cabinet (Updated 10.50am, 11 Apr 09)

Updated 10.50am, 11 April 2009

GUA MUSANG, 11 April 2009: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has strongly refuted a Bernama story that quotes him as saying that he hailed the new cabinet under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Bernama reported yesterday that Gua Musang Member of Parliament Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah described the cabinet as “neat” and capable of restoring the people’s confidence in the Barisan Nasional (BN).

The report also quoted him as saying that changes were inevitable if the BN was to win the people’s hearts and minds.

“The previous cabinet [was] not that neat. We shall see how the new cabinet performs… I truly hope that the new leadership will be able to change things for the better,” he was reported to have said.

He was speaking at the opening of the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tengku Indera Petra 2 Parent-Teacher’s Association annual general meeting on 10 April 2009.

Tengku Razaleigh was cited as saying the new cabinet would be able to strengthen the country’s economy despite the current global economic downturn.

The new leadership should be given the opportunity to bring changes, he was reported to have said. Tengku Razaleigh offered to contest the Umno presidency in the recently-concluded party polls but could only manage one nomination from the Gua Musang Umno division.

    What was he trying to say anyway?

    If not much is done to restore the confidence of the people that we are moving towards the right direction, the consequences will be seen at the next elections. There is little time left for both BN and the Opposition to show their will to change and push for the betterment of the country as a whole and not on racial grounds.

    [For example, there is a need] to mend the divisiveness and make the civil service more service-orientated [instead of the current] mentality that the people owe them a living. To change a culture is not an easy task but if words match deeds, people will know. Good luck!
