The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) released a statement on 11th May, Saturday in response to the facebook post posted by MP Zainudin Nordin on his public facebook page.[divide]
MP Zainudin Nordin cannot be more right in stating that choice comes with responsibility to vote for what is morally right and supports the overall good. Democracy will not be able to deliver otherwise.
However, it is value system not process that deliver the goods. Our founding fathers have been criticised by foreign press for not abiding to democratic rules. They chose to be guided by morals, social code and the sole purpose of achieving betterment of the masses. Guided by values and right choices, this country has been built on strong foundations and spurred us in the right directions.
Voters have a responsibility to act responsibly. Our founding fathers have shown that government acting responsibly prevails over management style or any ideology.
MP Zainudin has long served on labour unions. It is a moral duty and a skill match that he champions the plight of our elder workers who have been marginalised in workplace.
Elder workers are respected in all advanced economies and progressive societies but not enough in ours yet. It is a moral duty to question whether racial enclaves have any place in our society.
It is also a moral duty to acknowledge the above mentioned issues exists and are increasingly entrenched. It is a moral duty to act responsibly and reverse wrong to right.
Secretary General of Democratic Progress Party
