KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 8 (Bernama) — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak today said the government will re-examine and make necessary changes to its policies.
He said this was necessary to regain the people’s trust and confidence in light of the 2008 General Election which saw an unprecedented support for the opposition.
He also assured that the Barisan Nasional (BN) government will continue to work on the multi-ethnic and power sharing platform to ensure that all Malaysians are looked after.
“It is not a question of whether a majority or a minority government. It is a government for all Malaysians,” he said.
Speaking at a Malaysia-China Malam Muhibah here tonight, he also urged the Chinese community here to continue working with other races in the country, to enhance the process of nation building.
“I believe we can fulfill the inspirations and aspirations of all ethnic groups. Let’s us find new solutions to problems. Let’s us develop not only the economic and political ties, but also the social and cultural relationship with all ethnic groups in the country,” he said.
The Deputy Prime Minister also urged the Chinese community here to continue working with other races in the country, to enhance the process of nation building.
“As much as the late Tun Abdul Razak had said in 1974 (when Malaysia forged diplomatic ties with China) that we can trust the Chinese in China, I will say the same, that we can trust and have confidence in the Chinese community here in Malaysia.
“Together we can stand shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, to open up new beginnings, new era and new future for all Malaysians,” he said.
Najib also reiterated that the welfare of the Chinese community in Perak will be looked after by the newly-formed BN state government.
At the function, Hai-O Marketing and Persatuan Persahabatan Malaysia-China also contributed RM113,000 and RM10,000 respectively to the Gaza Fund.
