KUCHING: Bandar Kuching MP Dr Kelvin Yii believes that a government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim can steer the country towards better political stability.
He said he was excited for the new dawn in Malaysia and looked forward to the Anwar’s leadership.
“As Sarawakians, what we want is a multiracial federal government in Putrajaya to treat all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or background fairly, and not one who instigates, spew hatred and play with racial and religious tension to further divide us.
“So, no matter how difficult the decision was, we strongly believe that only a government led by Anwar Ibrahim can steer the country towards better political stability, instil principles of good governance which will allow the country to progress as well as attract foreign investments,” he said on Friday (Nov 25).
Dr Yii added that Anwar had the experience in managing the country’s finances when he was finance minister from 1991 to 1998, when the average gross domestic product (GDP) growth for the period of 1991 to 1997 was 9.23 per cent.
“And such choice was proven right as when he was named PM, Malaysia stocks surged the most in over two years since March 2020 on bullish market sentiment and the ringgit gained 1.9 per cent against the dollar, becoming the best performer in Asia since the announcement.
“That shows the importance of good governance to instil market confidence.
“What is best for Sarawak is a competent multicultural government that takes care of us all regardless of our race, religion or background.
“Now that a unity government is formed, this could be a new dawn in Malaysia and even in Sarawak. It’s now time to heal, reconcile, find commonalities, and rebuild our beloved nation.
“This is just the beginning and the real work starts now,” Dr Yii added.
