Why do you wish to join MPPC 2011?
Our primary reason for joining is that we love our country and we wish to personally take part in promoting and accelerating the awareness in politics, education and public policy formulation among Malaysians, especially those living in rural areas and have little access to balanced and independent news. There are many values that we must have the honour to defend and have the courage to fight for. Justice, transparency, human rights, citizen rights, media independence, unity, anti-racism, integrity, prosperity, democracy; These values are gradually fading in importance and some are already lost in the system of governing today.As always, we criticize, comment and agree by holding to our standards strongly when dealing with the public policies. However, as an individual, we cannot make a significant impact. We have to find means to speak out in order to improve public policies at the state and federal level. We want to get a chance to suggest and implement our ideas by finding out the best possible solution through exchanging ideas, discussion and debates, as it helps to train the current and future leaders like us to think critically about our values and attitudes to meet the needs of the next generation of Malaysia. It is a platform for us to work out practically and effectively to get the public attention with a hope that more Malaysians would be concerned about public policies and learn to think critically without being influenced by dirty politics. We want the Malaysia government to be accountable. We want to bring hope for the people staying in Malaysia and also those migrating overseas for a better future. That is why we join the Malaysian Public Policy Competition 2011. Last but not least, we appreciate your effort in providing such opportunity to young Malaysians. Thank you.
