“In life in this world, we cannot escape from challenges. When we lose, we are tested. When we win we are also tested.

“Since 1998 until now, it has been our duty to stick to the original struggle which is to demand justice not for ourselves, but for all.

“Challenges still await, and after the swearing-in ceremony, efforts to unite compatriots, examine economic problems, attract investment through economic stimulation and local talent, and build an ummah and a nation based on social justice and patriotism.
