Francis Loh observes that more and more Malaysians are demanding both development and democracy. The deepening of democracy in Malaysia requires the consolidation of a two-coalition political system.
Malaysians want a government that lives up to its
responsibility of ensuring that all citizens and other residents of
Malaysia have equitable access to safe, adequate and quality health
care, said participants at a forum on the proposed national health financing scheme. No one must be denied proper care because of lack of means.
As you go out to vote, think of the justice system in Malaysia, urges our special correspondent Pro-justice.The way justice and legal systems function
in Malaysia is a serious cause for concern. The call by a government
minister to journalists and reporters to report “responsibly” (meaning
protect the powers-that-be) rather than the truth sent shivers down the
spines of Malaysians!
