Johor DAP Veterans’ Appreciation Lunch


Veteran Johor DAP members who are gathered here in Yong Peng on 18th February 2017 at the Veterans’ Appreciation lunch declare our full support to DAP National Leadership to deal with the nation’s new and emerging challenges.

We take cognizance:

·      That the Malaysian Government under Prime Minister Najib Razak is now a global kleptocracy which has stolen the wealth of the nation like never before, and the people are facing daily consequences of such government in the forms of falling currency, GST, slow growth, corruption etc;

·      That we are in a difficult political realignment to form a viable alternative to replace UMNO-Barisan Nasional after PAS defected from the Opposition’s cause to become a de facto ally of Najib;

·      That UMNO-PAS de facto alliance will play the race and religion cards to divert attention from the real concerns of the people, and that we must bring all ethnic groups together to transcend our differences to build a new Bangsa Malaysia.

As Najib, UMNO and Barisan Nasional are struggling to survive from a potential Malaysian political tsunami that will wipe them out from office, the weeks and months to come will be very challenging.

The DAP veterans who are gathered here today give our full support to the party’s leadership to lead and to overcome the new and emerging challenges, and to prevail over our opponents for a new Malaysia to emerge.

While the nights are going to be long and dark, we will perservere, we shall overcome, we will overcome one day.
