Malaysia takes off with newfound hope as Anwar is appointed PM

In an instant, the nation has witnessed a rebirth, and the horizon looks so temptingly promising

An Aliran Monthly cover in 2012: Anwar has persevered in the wildernness for over two decades

Congratulations to Malaysia’s new Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim.

He has proven to us that belief in oneself, perseverance and a sincere motive to do the best for the nation will triumph no matter how long it takes.

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Rulers’ recognition of Anwar as our 10th prime minister has sent a subtle message to all politicians that the palace cannot be twiddled with by ill-intending politicians.

As news broke of Anwar’s success, a jubilant air of quiet celebration spread across the nation.

The stock market rebounded today, probably boosted by this impending development.

Accolades and congratulatory messages will pour in from many people, including world leaders.

In an instant, the nation has witnessed a rebirth, and the horizon looks so temptingly promising.

I join millions of ordinary people in registering our prayers for Anwar.

As we celebrate this glorious resolve to an ugly impasse, let us march forward in the best interest of the nation.

Let us join hands with our new prime minister and move on with goodwill in our hearts.

For those who made life difficult for the millions of us, please be remorseful. Repent and come join the march to build the best Malaysia we have always dreamed of.

Congratulations to everyone who held on to that hope.

The time has come to start repairing our beloved nation. Let no self-serving, diabolical politician stand in the way of a new, united and vibrant Malaysia.

Congratulations: DSAI is the 7th person to be appointed PM but 10th PM.

Promises werre made by DSAI and expected by Malaysians though similar promises were made by past political leaders prior to elections but forgotten soon after winning elections & coming to power in most cases and rakyat disappointed.

PERSONAL AMBITIONS/GREED WERE PERCEIVED TO HAVE SUPERSEDED PUBLIC INTEREST as may be suspected by cases of MISMANAGEMENT-FRAUD-CORRUPTION-COLLUSION-CRONYISM-EMBEZELLMENT-BRIBERY-KICKBACKS-NEPOTISM committed resulting in some getting investigated/charged in courts of law/convicted and even sentenced to prison with many cases ongoing and suspects on free bail.

WAIT AND SEE WITH DSAI but hoping best.

Bless all
