People still don’t know what 1 Malaysia is

KUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — It has been three months since the prime minister launched his 1 Malaysia concept and you would have thought everybody would know what it means by now.

At least the basic concept? Well, the answer is a resounding “No.”

In his first Parliament sitting as prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak still had to explain what his 1 Malaysia concept is all about.

And, ironically, the one asking the question was no Pakatan Rakyat (PR) MP but someone from his own party.

The explanation was not a simple one. In a six-page detailed reply, Najib explained his 1 Malaysia concept despite having elaborated on the same subject in the past.

He may blame the confusion on PR but a fact is a fact.

Look at the recent report which showed that less than half of the total number of government workers polled admitted not understanding what it means.

Even former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad shrugged his shoulders in when asked if he knew what the 1 Malaysia concept means.

This prompted Najib to instruct his people to go down to the ground — and even into the jungles of Borneo — to sell his 1 Malaysia concept.

he 1 Malaysia concept basically incorporates a united Malaysia under a government by the people and for the people as embodied in the slogan: The people first, performance now.

Sounds easy to grasp? Maybe not.
