“We keep an open mind and use the political landscape in a mature manner to bring forth political agendas without mudslinging.
“The main thing is we bring values and dignity, in addition to high integrity in our reform agenda that demands for national change.
“My intention to be close to the rakyat to bring change is due to the fact that our country is in a really bad situation, something that has never occurred in the history of our country,” he said.
