KUALA LUMPUR, June 6 â€” The 1Malaysia concept does not deviate from the essence of the Federal Constitution, expressed or implied, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.
He said it was not a new concept or formula but its ultimate objective was national unity, which was the primary vision of previous administrators translated into various forms over the last five decades or so.
Najib said that looking back at history, since the time that the patriots fought for independence up to the present time, efforts to achieve national unity were given priority because all quarters realised that without unity it would be difficult to achieve the objectives of the national vision.
“What has changed is the approach and methodology, to suit the era and generation,” he said in his congratulatory speech on behalf of the government, civil servants and the people in conjunction with the birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, at the Istana Negara, here.
Najib said the late Tunku Abdul Rahman founded the Alliance Party as the first concrete step in the nationâ€™s history to forge unity in the political arena.
