Time to restore the dignity of Parliament

WHEN we talk about the new Government that is in place after GE14, we usually think of the men and women who now occupy offices in the Prime Minister’s Depart­ment and the ministry buildings in Putrajaya.

Time to consider a children’s commission

THE post-GE14 days have not been a time of stability and certainty for several commissions set up by the government.

Pitfalls in govt pledge on PTPTN

A PROMISE is a promise. Arguably more so if it is an election pledge because lots of impatient and demanding voters are expecting the ruling party to stay true to its word.

Let’s hear it for the boys

WE live in a special time, when we are fortunate enough to see fathers rising to the challenge of being better dads, modern parents, free from the stereotypes of yesteryear and more interested in making genuine connections with their sons and daughters.

A sporting spectacle that brings us all closer together

THE name Mohamed Salah is on the lips of nearly every football fan at the moment, especially with mere days to go to the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia and the player rushing to be fit by then.

Match noble actions of rakyat with transparency

HOVERING in the sky above Putrajaya is a garish neon sign. Here is what it flashes in an alarming shade of red: “RM1 trillion!”

Review the position of political appointees individually

AFTER GE14, there has been a lot of attention on political appointments in the public sector. The new go­­vernment has made it a priority to reduce expenditure and wastage. One of its major moves in these early days is to terminate the contracts of 17,000 officers who are said to be political appointees.

Time to march in unison and purpose

IT was a general election unlike any Malaysia had ever gone through. The outcome is similarly new to us all. But now that GE14 is over and what the majority wants has been made clear, the nation must march on in unison and with great purpose.

A race in which voters can be the real winners

SOME people think of an election as a race. There are clear parallels. Both are about two or more persons competing against each other to cross the finish line with the best result.

The Star Says

Candidates – prove your worth instead of slinging mud

Dear GE14 candidates: Your days ahead until May 9 – and probably for some time after that – will be gruelling.

The Star Says

Vote not with your hearts alone, be sensible too

POLLING day for GE14 is more than three weeks away but there is already reason to celebrate. And it is a win for everybody.

The Star Says

A little kindness goes a long way

THE “kindness revolution” starts tomorrow. It has nothing to do with GE14 – those taking part in this shake-up are mainly school students and teachers – but it is definitely a good idea for everyone else to pay close attention over the next several days.
