KUALA LUMPUR – The Barisan Nasional led by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tonight pledged to implement programmes to make Malaysia greater with a brighter future by giving preference to the people and providing more equitable and comprehensive development from Perlis to Sabah and Sarawak.
This promise was contained in the 220-page BN manifesto for the 14th General Election, which had 364 initiatives under the theme ‘With BN for A Greater Malaysia’, that was launched here tonight by the Prime Minister and BN chairman who pledged to implement a comprehensive development especially in areas deemed to have been neglected over the decades.
“Trust me, your vote for the Barisan Nasional is the mandate for the continuity of prosperity, well-being and peace in this small country. May God bless us all,” Najib said in the preface of the manifesto that he launched at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil.
The manifesto makes its pledges under 14 inclusive, comprehensive and practical thrusts, namely Mothers and Women First; A Home for Everyone; Three Million Jobs; More Smiles in Sabah and Sarawak; Futuristic Transportation; Digital Empowerment; Made in Malaysia; A Newer BR1M; Rakyat’s Economy; Future-Oriented Education; Live Healthy; Peaceful 1Negaraku; TN50 and Universal Child Care.
A highlight of the Mothers and Women First thrust is the setting up of a Women’s Economic Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, tasked with ensuring that that the direction and development of the women’s economic agenda are given proper attention. Another is enacting the Sexual Harassment Act to protect victims from sexual harassment. – BERNAMA
