So much talk about the 3RD FORCE lately. Yet, the country does not need more political parties nor politicians. We need more from the rakyat who are willing to be part of the change/reform that is happening in Malaysia.
The TSUNAMI 2008 has created a SPACE that Malaysian Civil Society can and should respond. DSAI came from a Civil Society background till TDM roped him into politics. DSAI sees the relevance of CIVIL SOCIETY playing a part to Build A NEW MALAYSIA. Since Badawi, there has also been invitations for Civil Society to participate in programmes to uplift the rakyat in various sectors. Business communities, Professionals and Academicians can and should work in their respective spheres of expertise and influence to upgrade the level of competency among the wakil rakyat offices to deliver progressive and development programmes for the rakyat.
The ministries, state ministers (excos), wakil rakyat have access to budgets for programmes for the rakyat. Poverty eradication, youth development, community services and commmunity development programmes and events to build solidarity and unity, business development programmes for SMEs-SMIs, programmes for single-mothers, the marginalised and numerious other budgets are available for civil society to tap by working together with the various bodies.
THE 3RD FORCE must not be a political entity but an ENABLING, EMPOWERMENT VEHICLE for Growth & Development for the various sectors of society.
Engage with the Federal & State Excos, Wakil Rakyat and Government Agencies & Bodies. It can be frustrating sometimes with certain civil servants, but we must try. Roped in your ADUNs/MPs and make proposals to help uplift your communities wherever you are. TIME TO REBUILD MALAYSIA. DON’T LEAVE IT TO THE POLITICIANS ALONE, they are too busy fighting internal and external political battles since 2008. CIVIL SOCIETY must rise up to the challenge and “MAKE A DIFFERENCE”
