Malaysian National Day Theme: 55 Years of Independence, Promises Fulfilled

RAUB: The theme for the National Day, “55 Years of Independence, Promises Fulfilled (55 Tahun Merdeka, Janji Ditepati)” was chosen to reflect that the Government has delivered on its promises, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He added that since achieving Independence 55 years ago, Barisan Nasional leaders have brought much progress and development to the country.

He cited three core promises which had been fulfilled for the benefit of the people.

“The promise of a peaceful nation is kept as the security forces have successfully countered major threats to the nation,” said Najib during a breaking of fast programme with Raub residents in Kampung Gali Tengah here yesterday.

He said the promise of a harmonious society could not be guaranteed under the Pakatan Rakyat with their different ideologies and political beliefs.

On the promise of people’s welfare, there were plenty of job opportunities but Malaysians were rather choosy and lacked discipline.

“In some European countries, the unemployment rate is about 25% while in Spain, almost 45% of their youths were jobless.

“Some two million registered foreigners are here making a living and stick to Malaysia like a magnet,” he said.
