TAIPING, April 4 (Bernama) — The ‘One Malaysia. People First. Performance Now’ concept is a positive one that would build and nurture unity among the various races in the country.
Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said his party fully supported the concept to be the slogan of the new administration under the leadership of the sixth premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“Gerakan actually takes the ‘One Malaysia’ slogan to be in line with our party’s motto of ‘Satu Hati, Satu Negara, Satu Wawasan’ (One Heart, One Nation, One Vision) which has been used for more than 40 years,” he told Bernama.
Koh said in line with the the new-approach slogan of Najib, Gerakan’s motto could now be changed to ‘Satu Hati, Satu Malaysia’ to mean every Malaysian’s desire to entrench unity in the country.
He said Gerakan would be shoulder-to-shoulder with Barisan Nasional (BN) to advance and make a success of the ‘One Malaysia’ concept.
“I believe the concept can resolve many problems with a new approach in the country,” he said.
In the spirit of the new slogan, Najib, in his maiden address last night, urged the people to together implement a huge transformation in the country.
Najib said the concept of ‘One Malaysia’ was based on two main principles which were respecting each other and having confidence in each other.
