KUCHING, Nov 27: Minister for Women, Childhood, and Community Wellbeing Development (KPWK) Sarawak Dato Sri Fatimah Abdullah believes that unity between races is important regardless of political or religious beliefs.

Fatimah told reporters this after officiating at the symbolic handover of the Rotary Pan Borneo Joint Club Project at Tanoti House here today.

“People were concerned about security, unity, and racial harmony in the period following the general election and before the appointment of the Prime Minister.

“As a result, we must now concentrate on the issue of unity. We want racial unity; we want our people to be united.

“It doesn’t matter what your political or religious beliefs are, but don’t judge each other and let’s work together to make Malaysia great again,” she emphasised.

She also asserted that the most important thing presently is to get started on the right foot, which the King has done by ordering the formation of a unity government, on which all parties involved must agree in order for a unity government to be formed.

“The country’s stability can now be achieved, and that the new Prime Minister (Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim), and his appointed cabinet will be able to focus on the most important issue affecting Malaysians, which is the economy,” she added.

In addition, Fatimah hoped that the Prime Minister would be granted the wisdom to select a Cabinet that would assist him in elevating Malaysia to great heights.

Meanwhile, when asked if Sarawakian women would be appointed to the Cabinet, she replied “hopefully”, quoting the King’s command that “winners don’t take all, losers don’t lose all”.

“That is very useful advice, and it can be used to decide who will be appointed to the Cabinet,” she asserted. — DayakDaily
