HRH Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah commended the Menteri Besar of Perak, Dato’ Saarani Mohamad for being an exemplary figure in minimising political disputes.
“In the interest of citizens, agendas such as economic prosperity, state development and social well-being must be prioritised.
“During the 2021 Perak Budget tabling, the MB responded to the decree by having an even allocation announced for all 59 state legislative assembly members (ADUNs), regardless of political party affiliation.
“All members of the House were also invited to attend the district action committee (JKTD), focus group committee (FGD) and disaster management committee meetings.
“Albeit a small step, this courageous move by the MB made it possible for all members to participate, directly and constructively, in formulating governance that meets citizens’ needs in an effective and meaningful manner, which has set a precedent in the state administration.
“If nurtured, this initial step will pave the way to a new and superior political culture that is less confrontational.”
Sultan Nazrin said in his royal address while officiating the Perak State Legislative Assembly (DUN) meeting at the state secretariat building today (August 25), adding that every member of the House should welcome the move.
“Reciprocate and appreciate this new culture by embodying a mature spirit of teamwork, mutual respect and helping each other with efforts undertaken in the state and citizens’ interests.
“In addition, work together to cultivate the spirit of unity and citizenship among those of various races, those who profess various religions, those who practice various cultures and those who master various languages,” he stated.
Sultan Nazrin expressed his gratitude to the MB, state executive councillors and other parties involved who have joined hands in developing the state of Perak.
