Public policy is a major field which affects every member of society. No one can escape the long arm of public policies decision undertaken by our leaders as the effects of these policies inadvertently affect our freedom and our lives. A nation’s wellbeing and progress is always reflective on the type of public policies it creates and enforces.As a team, we recognise that even though the government is empowered to make laws and public policies, it is the will of the people that give these laws life and vigour, and that is the very cornerstone of a beautiful democracy. Unfortunately, we believe that there is a severe case of political apathy that is plaguing the nation which translates into a deficiency of public discourse on policies. This pernicious problem takes away the drive and motivation for people to advocate, to criticize and to push for policies that is needed for a better society and for the advancement of the country. We also believe that Malaysia is currently lacking one of the strongest check-and-balance mechanisms in a democracy; public criticism towards policies. Joining this competition allows us to be a part of the profound process of public discourse as it provides a platform for us to exchange fresh ideas in a competitive and intellectual environment. As law students and debaters, we believe that we are capable of proposing viable suggestions to solve the ailment that the country faces. More than anything, we hope that we can be a part of something as significant as the momentous gathering of bright likeminded individuals who share the same dream for a better future and a better Malaysia.
