Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad says the shared prosperity of the people is the basis of the commitment of the government led by Pakatan Harapan (PH) in designing programmes and policies to make Malaysia a prosperous, dignified and independent nation.
Mahathir was raising a toast and taking pledge of loyalty on behalf of the people at the installation of Sultan Abdullah as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong at Istana Negara.
“In this regard, I will continue to ensure that Your Majesty’s government does not remain satisfied with the achievements thus far.
“Efforts will be redoubled continuously to revive Malaysia to be one of the more important economic axis in Asia,” he said.
The cost of living also will be reduced by increasing the purchasing power and purging the income gap between classes, races and regions. And also tackling the rising prices of goods and cost of living completely demands the cooperation of all quarters.
Important measures will endure to be executed to recuperate governance and integrity and eradicate corruption, including taking action against those involved in corruption and exploitation of power.
The government, has shown a high level of commitment and achieved victory in many matters, taking into consideration the financial position inherited from the previous government, although it was in power just for a year.
The prime minister also recorded his gratitude to the Sultan of Kelantan, Sultan Muhammad V, for his reign as the 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong until Jan 6 this year.
