He said it is good to judge what had been achieved in the first 100 days of the Pakistani Harapan government as a form of "report card", but noted what was more important, or the Malaysian "ship" a critical turnaround.
This was from a failed, kleptocratic and cakistocratic state to one of greater national unity, integrity, democracy, the rule of law and excellence.
"Although it is not possible to undo in 100 days all abuses and excesses of the power of more than six decades of power, the country should have set a new course in nation-building in the first 100 days of the Pakistani government Harapan to a New Malaysia, "he said in a statement
] Lim pointed to four signs that Malaysia is towing ards a New Malaysia:
– restoring the separation of powers in parliament.
– restoration of the separation of powers in the judiciary.
– transformation of Malaysia from the global kleptocracy.
– creation of the six parliamentary selection committees for parliamentary reforms.
The parliamentary MP Iskandar pointed out that the first sign of reform in Parliament was reached by the parliamentary president Datuk Mohd Ariff Mohd Yusff.
He had MPs debating the 1MDB scandal, allowed the Auditor General and Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to conduct detailed investigations into 1MDB, and appointed an opposition MP as the PAC president.
Lim said the second point was made with the appointment of the new supreme judge Tan Sri Richard Malanjum and the new Court of Appeal President Tan Sri Ahmad Maarop.
The country expects a new era of legal activism (a concept where judges interpret laws to promote greater fairness), he added. ] Lim also said that through a thorough investigation into the 1MDB scandal and a cleanup of the country's government system, Malaysia is being transformed from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity in the world.
However, he reportedly had dangers of "irresponsible opportunists" in the opposition (Umno) to bring about distrust and enmity between different races and religions.
"There are danger signals – the refuge to cruel and poisonous policies of race, religion, hatred, fear and lies of irresponsible political opportunists in the opposition," he said, claiming that this has been seen in the recent Sungai Kandis midterm elections and would (probably) repeat in the current Balakong and Seri Setia midterm elections.
