  1. The present government is corrupted to the core and so are the public institutions which report to the Prime Minister instead of Parliament. We must change the government to implement holistic reforms and clean up the institutions.

  2. The home minister and PDRM are a colony of thieves and pirates. Nothing changes at all.
