PUTRAJAYA: The Prime Minister has given his assurance that the 1Malaysia concept will be based on the Federal Constitution.

A 21-man delegation from Perkasa, a Malay non-governmental organisation, spent an hour with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yesterday discussing issues affecting the Malay community.

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said Najib gave an assurance that the 1Malaysia concept was not the same as the Malaysian Malaysia concept championed by DAP.

He said the prime minister also told the group that the 1Malaysia concept, which emphasised on prioritising the people’s needs, would empower every article in the constitution.

“The situation is getting clearer, and the confusion caused by certain parties was resolved at the meeting. Najib explained the liberalisation aspect and the importance of staying competitive to attract foreign investors,” Ibrahim told Bernama, adding that Perkasa would continue to act as the “eyes and ears” of the Government.
