For some time now, Pakatan Rakyat has been talking about their effort to steer the country to genuine democracy, justice, freedom and the rule of law. In December last year, the Opposition Coalition took one decisive, deliberate and historic step to free our country from the consequences of BN misrule via a joint agreement to a Common Policy Framework that was launched at the coalition’s historic inaugural convention on December 19th at Auditorium MBSA, Shah Alam.

The CPF, prepared by Zaid Ibrahim, Pakatan Rakyat’s policy coordinator, will be the compass and guiding light to the coalition in their effort to reach and touch the hearts and minds of Malaysians to convince them that they are sincere in their effort to check the downward spiralling trend of Malaysia if and when they succeed in winning the next election.

The coalition recognizes that many still Malaysians still fall prey to BN’s propaganda to promote a narrow understanding of race, divisive hate politics and authoritarianism. The recessive economy, the loss of moral conscience coupled with the greed of corruption and archaic policies have caused Malaysia to lag behind compared to other vibrant economies in the region. With that, the gap between the haves and have-nots and between the Peninsular and Sabah and Sarawak have widened even further.

Through the Common Policy Framework, Pakatan Rakyat has publicly announced their commitment to fully internalise and carry out an agenda of new politics by mobilizing the people’s power from the various races, religions and cultures as one force.

Many Malaysians are still unclear about the Common Policy Framework. As such, Sembang-sembang Forum is organizing a forum to help Malaysians to understand the Common Policy Framework.
