Firstly, congratulations on being chosen as the respective candidates for PR and BN. Both of you deserve the honour. I vote at Lembah Pantai. I am one of those non-partisans Malaysians, one without a party. I would like to believe I belong to a third block of Malaysian voters – The Third Force.
I hope to catch both of you before May 5th. I have not decided who to vote for, and I am likely to make my choice the night before May 5th. But you can help me hasten my decision by doing the following.
I would like to have a contract, albeit a halal one, with the two of you. I have a wish list that I would like you to look into before I make my decision. I do not expect both of you to agree to every item, but the one who agrees and promises to do more will get my vote. I would like to videotape your promise if chance permit.
Here are my wishes:
i. Propose the enactment of non-party hopping within six months and continue to push it forward until the law is in place. You personally will not party hop and will open and explicitly go against the acceptance of any party-hoppers into your team
ii. Speak on behalf of all Malaysians regardless of race or religion at all times and never fights only for one community
iii. Promote economic policies that provide support to all Malaysians in the bottom 40% strata of society, regardless of race
iv. Publicly declare your assets with a third party register with a legally binding statutory declaration
v. Propose to make the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) report directly to Parliament, within six months of the GE and continue to fight for it until the law is in place
vi. Call for a press conference within a month after the elections and show clear knowledge, appreciation and support that the Malay and indigenous customs form our core culture, while the Chinese, Indian and other cultures play strong supporting roles as part and parcel to form the unique Malaysia brand
vii. Practice empathy; e.g. - refuse to allow beef or pork to be served or sold in all government-related premises, projects and all party activities.
viii. Initiate a process to work towards one-stream schools which also adequately provides for all who want to learn their vernacular languages, to be established within the next fifteen years. Propose a constitutional change to make this happen within six months after elections.
ix. Ensure that at least 50% of your work schedule is allocated for working directly for the people in your constituency, you will clock in the hours, declare each morning your daily to do list and keep a monthly report of these efforts.
x. Rise above party politics, and keep the above nine conditions even if it goes against your party
Just in case I am not able to meet with any of you face to face, I would be most glad if you simply email me your answers. Looking forward to voting either of you.
