Putrajaya should learn mature politics from Selangor

SHAH ALAM, MAY 9: Putrajaya is advised to emulate Selangor’s mature politics to ensure continuation of the country’s democracy principles.
Kota Anggerik Assemblyman, Yaakob Sapari said, Umno-Barisan Nasional’s (Umno-BN) administration is preventing the principles of democracy from positively expanding in this country.
“Being too long in power have made the Umno-BN leaders lose focus. In other progressed countries, for the benefit of the citizens, power is rotated between government party and opposition parties.
“We have a good example in Selangor. Since the authoritative power was transferred to Pakatan Rakyat, corrupt practices at the highest level have been brought under control.
“We make is easy for the Opposition Leader. We give freedom to opposition and to citizens. This is mature politics. Can learn from Selangor,” he said on Facebook.
He said, what’s more impressive is that the democracy and transparency practiced in Selangor has made it into a clean and corrupt-free administration.
That is proven through the trustworthy administration by the team of wakil rakyat led by Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
“Nowadays we don’t practice bribery as previously done by the Umno-BN Menteri Besar. On the contrary, the state’s reserve continue to grow and we have been able to implement various welfare programmes for the citizens.
For the record, at Putrajaya level, the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s Government is amongst those who strongly hinders democracy in the country.
That is because of the continuous prosecution of opposition leaders, activists, students and lawyers under the Sedition Act.
