PEOPLE’S CONSENSUS

Pakatan Rakyat hereby put forward a policy agenda to lead the people and this
nation out of the current worsening crisis.
The people’s development agenda has been derailed due to a narrow
understanding of race, divisive hate politics and authoritarianism. The recessive
economy caused by the loss of moral conscience, the greed of corruption and
archaic policies are causing Malaysia to be left behind compared to other vibrant
economies in the region.
The unjust economy is all the more apparent in the widening gap between the
rich and the poor, between the urban and the rural population, and between the
Peninsular and Sabah and Sarawak.
The rising crime rate threatens lives and property because the police force has
been used for narrow political ends. The integrity and independence of the
judiciary continues to be damaged by political interference and business
interests.
After half a century of sovereign independence, Malaysia should have matured.
This should have been realised when the people from various races, breaking
down narrow and obsolete mindset, and manifest a new spirit to reject the
perversion of power, the spread of corruption, the plunder of the nation’s wealth
and the repression of the people’s rights.
In appreciating the people’s aspirations, Pakatan Rakyat therefore declares our
commitment to fully internalise and carry out an agenda of new politics by
mobilizing the people’s power from the various races, religions and cultures as
one force.
Further, we have confidence; we can change our policy framework from narrow
racial approach to principles based on religious faiths, humanism, ethical and
human rights, and equality before the law regardless of status, race or group.
The policies that are derived from adherence to the Constitution and universal
principles of justice will safeguard the rule of law and the independence of the
judiciary, which in turn will guarantee that the human rights and dignity of the
people will continuously be defended and upheld.
Pakatan Rakyat is confident that the Malaysian economy can be driven at a
faster pace through a market based economy that is humane, leading towards a
more holistic human development. Economic policies should make Malaysia
competitive, maintain a healthy investment climate, implement progressive
taxation, but firm in its desire to realise justice through the equitable economic
distribution especially for the poor and marginalised.

Pakatan Rakyat rejects policies that allow for corruption and other financial
crimes and abuse of power. In order to ensure sustainable growth, oppressive
policies that had only enriched the few should be replaced with a policy that
ensures that the poor are assisted regardless of race.
As such, we invite the Malaysian people to create a new consensus that is
founded on principles of justice for all and Constitutionalism. This is the agenda
that must be done if we are to regain the nation’s respect, freedom and dignity.
Only by providing justice for all can the people live prosperously and in unity.


1. Transparent and Genuine Democracy
A. Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law
The Federal Constitution is the manifestation of the aspirations and hopes of the

any defects that allows for manipulation. Therefore it is important for us to review
all the relevant electoral laws.

progressive and resilient.

system, effectiveness and efficient expenditure, the implementation of extensive
development and economic policies will be needed to be devolved to the state
governments according to respective priorities.
Decentralisation can motivate structural change in the economic framework to
boost efficiency and productivity due to greater effectiveness in expenditure,
besides higher multiplier effects for government expenditure in the national
economy.

total population, poverty rate, development area, cost, human

vii. Improve the welfare of Orang Asli, Orang Asal and other minority groups
in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak besides defending their
fundamental, economic and social rights.

B. Religion
Religion and other beliefs practiced by Malaysians should form the basis of unity
that is founded on good universal values. Malaysians have almost fallen into the
boiling pot of discord and tension that was caused by manipulation of religious
differences. This should not happen in a genuinely democratic Malaysia, with
Islam occupying a special position whilst the rights of other religions are

education system. Ensure the equitable support and funding to religious
schools, Chinese and Tamil national schools, mission schools and
vocational schools in a concerted effort to increase the standard of

system based on critical and analytical thinking in search for the truth.

and international which fulfill the acceptable academic standards including
the UEC certificate and Diploma Muadalah (twinning).

D. Women

Pakatan Rakyat believes that policies which reflect respect, recognition and
understanding of the status of women and their potential can ensure the future
wellbeing of the nation. This comes from the fact that women constitute half of
the national population; hence their participation in the national development
process must not be neglected.
Pakatan Rakyat will:
i. Enact an Act to ensure women obtain just treatment in all fields.
ii. Emphasise to increase the Women Workforce to 60% within 10 years
compared to 46% in the past 20 years.
iii. Provide 30% women representation in all political and government
leadership levels.
iv. Combat domestic violence by institutionalising heavier punishment for
offenders and ensure the effectiveness of crisis centres in every hospital
and police station.

centres and others for mothers working in the government and private
sectors.

and policies.

and their contribution to national and community development.

The future and prosperity of a nation rests on their youths as the succeeding
generation. Hence, it is important that youths are given adequate space and
support so that they can fulfill their roles in the future.

to realise their self potential.
ii. Ensure that no youth will end his education without the opportunity to
obtain adequate vocational qualification or training to contribute towards a
high-skilled national economy.
iii. Recognise the important role and contribution of youths through the frank
dialogues with youth movements, especially on important issues
concerning their lives and the national future.

F. Security
There is an increase of crime and sense of insecurity in the country when
Malaysians should be entitled to feel safe and free from constant criminal threats.

supervised in order to make them more focused on their primary responsibility to
ensure that every area and all Malaysians are secure and safe.
Pakatan Rakyat will:
i. Make the police independent and professional and revert to their original
mission of crime prevention and ensuring public safety.
ii. Review the deployment of the police personnel so that there is adequate
workforce assigned to combat crime.
iii. Provide the police with the latest equipment and training in the effort to
combat crime.
iv. Implement all recommendations of the Royal Commission to Enhance the
Operation and Management of the Police, including IPCMC and the
improvement of the welfare of police personnel who have contributed to
the country.
v. Improve the working conditions of the police force especially at the lower
levels in order to improve performance and morale.
vi. Strengthen the role of communities in combating and preventing crime
through community programmes.
vii. Handle strategically and effectively the social problems that are the root
cause of crime.

G. Healthcare
Every Malaysian is entitled to enjoy the best public healthcare at an affordable
cost. Therefore, public healthcare services should be strengthened, thereby
ensuring good healthcare for the people.
Pakatan Rakyat will:
i. Establish a National Healthcare Commission with the aim of improving the
quality of public sector healthcare to a standard comparable with private
sector healthcare.
ii. Ensure a public healthcare service that is efficient, extensive and of high
quality to all Malaysians, at an affordable rate.
iii. Increase incentive schemes for medical staff at public hospitals.
iv. Monitor stringently all healthcare fascilities that have been privatised to
protect the public interest.

H. Culture
Diversity is a fact of the national socio-culture, an expression of the plurality of
our society comprised of major ethnic groups, clans and territories.
As such Pakatan Rakyat takes the responsibility of cultivating and enhancing the
potential of this diversity whilst rejecting any form of hegemony of one culture in
preference to other cultures. This approach is in line with the original spirit of
Merdeka and needs to be expanded into a New Cultural Consensus (Muafakat
Kebudayaan Baru), moving on from the National Cultural Policy of 1971.
The three main challenges are:
i. Ensure the freedom of expression and artistic creation through all media.
ii. The right to conduct performance or art-cultural shows without restrictions
– with the realisation that each artist has responsibility to himself/herself
and society.
iii. The ties with our traditional cultural roots should be strengthened whilst
remaining open to accept elements of other cultures from any race,
continent and belief that display universal traits.


4. Federal-State Relationship and Foreign Policy

A. The Federal System
The rights of states to make decisions according to their own requirement on
development strategy must be respected. The foundation of this right is an
adequate financial allocation to states that is based on their contribution to the
Federation and the people's needs.
Pakatan Rakyat will:

i. Guarantee to the state governments, a royalty of 20% from petroleum
income with an aim to eradicate poverty.
ii. Return part of the tax collection from each state based on an equitable
distribution.
iii. Increase the capitation grants for states.

B. Sabah and Sarawak

The spirit of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 will form the foundation for a just
relationship between the Federation and Sabah & Sarawak. By restoring the
balance of power that has been concentrated with the central government,
Pakatan Rakyat promises to make a fair and open assessment of principal
issues that are preventing political and socio-economic progress in both states in
East Malaysia

Pakatan Rakyat will:
i. Guarantee Sabah and Sarawak’s wealth are enjoyed fully by their people
by the provision of 20% royalty from their petroleum income.

issue.

I think the World now needs a modern lingua franca as well :-)

Why not decide on a neutral non-national language, taught worldwide, in all nations? As a native English speaker, I would prefer Esperanto
