I am an allegiant Malaysian, and I truly love this land I was born in.
My definition of loving this country includes my desire of seeing this country is backboned by stability of domestic politics that has been doubted by many of us of its immortality.
And of course, political stability is just fictional if politicians, especially members of parliament, are not so united about focusing on enriching people’s economy, regardless of their differences in political flags.
It’s a mutual belief that to mould a sturdy country, politicians, especially those who currently govern the government, have to have a steady storylines of rebuilding this country as they wished before celebrating the unprecedented change in government last year.
I don’t really mind who will lead this beautiful land in the future as long as the leader is not just a leader by appearance, but a leader that is fuelled by aspirations of leading humans beings.
Like piloting a jet in the sky, I have never experienced about witnessing a succession of political clout from one political leader to another, and having that, as many of you wished and dreamed about, would exactly repaint this beloved nation in terms of politics and for sure, economy.
Economy and politics are like goal and goalkeeper— both of them can never be separated. Missing one of them will not just cost the team a defeat, but it’s unaccepted by rules.
The absence of either economy or politics will viciously murder people’s survival as humans need to be led and have to be fed.
Feeding humans needs economy and economy has to be managed. Without leaders whom a single prime leader leads, the economy cannot be cared and people will be killed for suffering deficit of cares.
In a football match, injuries are one of the reasons why a footballer is substituted. And substituting the injured player won’t guarantee that the team would play the same as when the player was in the team.
Like in politics, neither retaining a leader nor substituting him or her assures a breakthrough in national politics as well as its economy.
So, my question to each of you who reads this article: Will the “pledged” succession of power to the 1984’s Minister of Agriculture guarantee that our country will shine like before?
