Pakatan Harapan pledges to limit the power of the Prime Minister if it wins the coming 14th General Election and capture Putrajaya from Barisan Nasional.
The manifesto launched by Pakatan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Pakatan president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail yesterday night promises 10 important reforms among which is to limit the tenures of the prime minister to two terms only and to restructure the Prime Minister’s Department and Cabinet.
The prime minister will also not be allowed to hold other positions such as the Finance Ministry.
The tenures of the Chief Ministers and Mentris Besar will also be limited to just two terms.
The Pakatan manifesto also said that the number of ministers in the Prime Minister’s Department will be reduced.
The manifesto also promises to:
● Erase the burden of the public (GST).
● Reform the nation’s administrative institutions and politics
● Shape the nation’s economy in a fair and just manner
● Reinstate the rights and status in Sabah and Sarawak as enshrined in the Malaysia Declaration 1963
● Build an inclusive, moderate and bright Malaysia in the international arena.
Pakatan secretariat chief Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah (pic) said this manifesto “is practical” and can be implemented to improve and build Malaysia.
“We are not promising the moon and the stars,” said Saifuddin in his speech.
“It has been successfully implemented in Selangor and Penang. So we are confident it can also be implemented nationwide,” he added.
