SURAT TERBUKA


As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on August 12, 2016

Kepada Rakyat Malaysia,

Kami adalah tujuh orang pengasas penubuhan sebuah parti politik baru.

Jawatan-jawatan kami adalah sementara. Apabila parti sudah tertubuh, perwakilan akan pilih pemimpin.

Sementara menunggu kebenaran dari Pendaftaran Pertubuhan, izinkan kami jelaskan kenapa parti ini ditubuh sekarang.

Malaysia setelah Merdeka berjaya dibangun oleh rakyat Malaysia dan wakil mereka sehingga terkenal sebagai satu-satunya negara merdeka yang tinggi pembangunannya.

Banyaklah negara-negara dunia ketiga yang anggap Malaysia sebagai negara contoh. Dimana-mana orang Malaysia pergi, mereka dihormati kerana kejayaan pentadbiran dan pembangunan negara mereka.

Tetapi sekarang kita terkenal sebagai sebuah negara dimana rasuah amat tinggi dengan Menteri Kewangan yang terburuk sekali.

Kita juga mempunyai seorang Perdana Menteri yang sedang disiasat kerana besar kemungkinan terlibat dengan money laundering (pembersihan duit haram) berbilion dollar Amerika.

Syarikat 1MDB kehilangan berbilion Ringgit. Di masa yang sama Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Dato Seri Najib mempunyai 2.6 bilion Ringgit dalam akaun peribadinya.

Hutang Negara meningkat berbilion Ringgit.

Walaupun belanjawan negara ternampak tinggi tetapi kementerian-kementerian, institusi dan agensi Kerajaan diarah kurangkan perbelanjaan sehingga 30 peratus.

Sementara itu kos sara hidup meningkat tinggi kerana cukai GST, kenaikan cukai tanah, pengurangan subsidi minyak dan penarikan balik status bebas cukai Langkawi dan Labuan.

Demokrasi dan pemerintahan mengikut undang-undang sudah tidak ada lagi. Pegawai ditukar dan diganti dengan pegawai yang setia kepada Najib supaya sanggup melakukan perkara yang salah apabila diarah.

Jenayah dalam Kerajaan dirahsiakan. Yang mendedah jenayah disoal, ditangkap, dipenjara dan dihadapkan ke mahkamah.

Sesungguhnya keadaan dalam negara dan imej di luar negara amatlah buruk. Di luar negara rakyat malu mengaku sebagai orang Malaysia. Tidak ternampak sebarang usaha untuk menghentikan jenayah dan memulih keadaan. Yang ditekankan ialah kesetiaan kepada Najib sebagai Presiden parti dan Perdana Menteri.

Dan banyaklah lagi keburukan yang dibawa oleh Najib kepada negara tercinta ini.

Kami pengasas parti baru berpendapat masa sudah tiba untuk rakyat menyelamatkan negara ini. Jika tidak segala-gala yang kita nikmati akan hancur-lebur dan kita dan anak cucu kita akan kembali menderita kemiskinan tanpa maruah.

Parti yang kami tubuh ini bertujuan menjadi alat kepada rakyat yang benar-benar cintakan negara yang bertuah ini.

Hasrat kami ialah untuk berkhidmat memulih semula rakyat dan negara.

Demokrasi dan pemerintahan berasas undang-undang akan kami kembalikan.

Segala kelemahan yang boleh disalahguna oleh pemimpin yang dipilih akan dihapuskan.

Pengurusan kewangan akan tertakluk kepada undang-undang dan aturan-peraturan baru supaya Perdana Menteri atau menteri-menteri tidak boleh sembunyi sebarang perbelanjaan. Ketelusan dalam semua urusan akan diamalkan.

Didikan dan latihan secara besar-besaran akan diberi kepada semua rakyat dari semua kaum supaya mereka dapat bekerja dengan pendapatan yang setimpal dengan hasil kerja mereka.

Yang termiskin dan kurang upaya akan dibantu dengan mencukupi.

Biasiswa untuk pelajaran sehingga ke peringkat yang tertinggi akan diadakan bagi semua mengikut keperluan mereka.

Kami percaya kami berpengalaman dan memiliki banyak idea untuk pemulihan ekonomi dan politik negara yang kami akan jelaskan dari masa ke semasa.

Oleh itu sertailah parti kami demi kesejahteraan kehidupan kita semua.

OPEN LETTER

To the people of Malaysia,

We are the seven founding members in the establishment of a new political party.

Our positions are temporary. When the party is formed, delegates will select leaders.

While waiting for approval from the Registrar of Societies, let us explain why this party is being formed.

Malaysia, after Merdeka was successfully developed by Malaysians and their elected representatives such that it has become known as one independent country with high level of development.

Many third world countries consider Malaysia a model state. Everywhere that Malaysians go, they are respected because of the success in the administration and development of their country.

But now we are known as a country where corruption is rampant with the Minister of Finance of the worst of all.

We also have a Prime Minister who is being investigated for possible involvement in a major money laundering scheme (cleansing illegal money) involving billions of US dollars.

1MDB lose billions of Ringgit. At the same time the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato Seri Najib, has RM2.6 billion in his personal account.

National debt increased by billions of Ringgit.

Although the country’s budget seems high but ministries, institutions and agencies were ordered to reduce spending by up to 30 percent.

In the meantime, the cost of living has risen significantly became of GST, increase in quit rent, reduction in oil subsidies and the withdrawal of tax-free status for Langkawi and Labuan.

Democracy and the rules of law no longer exist. Officers are transferred and replaced with officers loyal to Najib who are willing to do even the wrong things when instructed.

Crimes within the Government are made secret. Those who exposed crimes are questioned, arrested, jailed and brought to court .

Indeed, the situation in the country and image abroad is really bad. Overseas, citizens are ashamed to claim themselves as Malaysian. No efforts are seen made to curtail crimes and improve the situation. The emphasis is on loyalty to Najib as Umno president and Prime Minister.

And so much more damage has been brought by Najib to our beloved country.

We, founding members of a new party, believe that the time has come for the people to save the country. Otherwise everything that we had enjoyed will be shattered, and we and our children will return to enduring poverty without dignity.

The party that we have established is intended to be a tool for people who really love this blessed country.

Our intention is to serve so that people and the country recover.

Democracy and administration according to the rule of law situation will return.

Loopholes that could be abused by elected leaders will be eliminated.

Financial management will be subject to the law and new rules, so that the Prime Minister or ministers cannot hide any expenses. Transparency in all dealings will be practised.

Education and training on a large scale will be given to people of all races so that they can work with an income commensurate with their work.

The poor and disabled will be sufficiently supported.

Scholarships for education up to the highest level will be made available for all according to their needs.

We believe we are have the experience and have a lot of ideas for economic and political recovery of the country that we will reveal from time to time.

So come join our party for the benefit of all of us.
