Unity government’s 100 Day Report
BY: NICHOLAS LIM
Very soon the 100 Day Report on how the unity government is faring will be disclosed for Malaysians to evaluate their performance and there seem to be more plus than minus signs which is indeed a good indicator for the nation.
Still, a hundred days is a very brief period to do any serious assessment and that is why this initial three months of the unity government is considered a grace period and most politicians believe the real indicator will be when the government serves a full term.
Politicians across the board are surprisingly united and in unison that the unity government must not be hindered or obstructed from carrying out their duties through the various portfolios they have been accorded but to allow for continuity.
The situation in the country at present has been assessed as stable compared to the tumultuous period during the 15th general election and Malaysians are generally pleased that the country is under good control and leadership.
Malaysians have been placated by the fact that they have their wish granted. But while their wishes have not been fully met, nevertheless, they are satisfied for the present and find life now more comfortable and bearable.
But there are issues like unemployment, rising prices and inflation, corruption and the sluggish economy which the unity government must give top priority to address so as to assure Malaysians that they are not just a one term government.
