Selamatkan Malaysia Citizens’ Declaration To Seek The Removal of Najib

We call upon all Malaysians, irrespective of race, religion, political affiliation, creed or parties, young and old to join us in saving Malaysia from the government headed by Najib, to pave the way for much-needed democratic and institutional reforms, and to restore the important principle of the separation of powers among the executive, legislature and judiciary which will ensure the independence, credibility, professionalism and integrity of our national institutions.

58 influential leaders, led by former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad signed the Citizens’ Declaration calling for Najib’s removal as Prime Minister, the removal of those who have acted in concert with him, a repeal of all recent laws which violated fundamental human rights and the restoration of integrity of institutions that had allegedly been undermined.

The declaration signed by Malaysians from various backgrounds and parties to demand that Najib step down from the country’s leadership.

The declaration, titled “Citizens Declaration”, among others calls for Najib’s removal as well as “those in concert with him”. It was signed by 58 individuals, including Dr Mahathir’s wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, who was also present today. In his speech, Dr Mahathir said those present were there as citizens and not representatives of their political parties.

Reading from the declaration, he said Najib’s administration had inflicted damage to the nation and caused Malaysia to be listed as among the most corrupt nations. He said Najib’s removal from office must be through non-violent and “legally permissible means”.

Those who helped to cover up his “misdeeds” must also be removed, he added.

The undersigned citizens of Malaysia agree and support:

a) The removal of Najib as PM of Malaysia through non-violent and legally permissible means.

b) The removal of all those who have acted in concert with him.

c) A repeal of all recent laws and agreements that violate the fundamental rights guaranteed by the federal constitution and undermine policy choices.

d) A restoration of the integrity of the institutions that have been undermined, such as the police, the MACC, Bank Negara and the PAC.

“There is only one thing common among us, we as citizens want to express our worries and concern about what is happening to our country.

“We want to sign the declaration, which includes the removal of Najib as the prime minister,”

“We call upon all Malaysians, irrespective of race, religion, political situation, creed or parties, young and old, to join us in saving Malaysia from the government headed by Najib Razak,”

“We know the last one failed because it could not get enough support so we will also take our campaign to Barisan Nasional MPs,”

Dr Mahathir said he agreed with opposition parties PKR, Parti Amanah Negara and DAP on the need to remove Najib as prime minister and would set up a core group to achieve this objective.

Mahathir claims this country is being led by a leader who is doing a lot of damage to the nation.

“What we seek today is not a political realignment but a national alignment of all Malaysian forces for national interests.

“And I think all 30 million Malaysians, regardless of race, religion and creed, must unite and save Malaysia from being a failed and rogue state,”

“During the last general election, the voters made it clear that they wanted a change and this should be heard loud and clear by Najib.

“Instead, he (Najib) has regressed. He doesn’t even have the majority of the people’s support.”

“I’m glad that Tun M agreed that the system needs to be changed and it is very refreshing to hear.”

“I support the position of friends in civil society, political parties and individuals including Tun Dr Mahathir, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and others to build up strength and understanding together as articulated by the leader of the opposition recently,” he said in a message from prison on Thursday (March 3).

“This understanding will focus on the demand for Mr Najib to resign as Prime Minister as he has clearly failed to lead this nation,”

“He is responsible for continuing to engage in selfish political acts, wreaking havoc upon administrative institutions, and burdening the rakyat with continued economic crisis,”

“We must together chart a new way forward to save our beloved nation,”

“We have also learnt from history that meaningful transition of power cannot happen only with a change of leadership but it also demands a systemic change,”.

“All the institutions of our constitutional democracy have been violated to an unprecedented level and the mother of all financial scandals have broken loose with the perpetrators going about with absolute impunity.

“I call upon all Malaysians regardless of political affiliation, race, creed or religion to come together for the time is indeed ripe for all of us concerned citizens to seize the moment and bring about real and effective change.”

Former Kedah menteri besar Mukhriz Mahathir believes that BN may lose Kedah in the next general elections if Najib Abdul Razak remains as Umno president and prime minister.

“If he still heads the party until GE14, then I don’t think we will win (in Kedah),”

According to Mukhriz, Najib must step down from both posts to ensure a BN win in Kedah as the image of Umno will never recover if the Pekan MP still maintains his grip on power.

“It is not just to demand the prime minister to step down but to reject a political institution that has failed to fulfil the aspirations of the rakyat.

“Set aside racial, religious and ideological sentiments to get rakyat’s consensus towards forming a government that is just, trustworthy and with integrity,” he said.
“What has happened to Umno’s values? Gone are the values of honesty, sincerity and courage to state our rights and to oppose falsehood,” he said.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s leadership will ruin the country for future generations, says a youth group.

The group, identifying itself as Challenger – which stands for ‘Change led by the Young Generation’ – cited a slew of reasons for its stand.

“We, the youth leaders of Malaysia, have lost faith in Najib and his allies, as their actions have jeopardised and will sacrifice the future of Malaysia.

“Our love for Malaysia is unparalleled. It is therefore our duty to speak up against those who seek to wreck our beloved country apart…

“We will no longer silence ourselves while our future is robbed from us,” a spokesperson for Challenger

“All the institutions of our constitutional democracy have been violated to an unprecedented level and the mother of all financial scandals have broken loose with the perpetrators going about with absolute impunity.

“I have received overwhelming support from those who know they are supporting change. Change has to start with complete and thorough investigations on Najib and the role of the Attorney-General and the IGP on 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad) and SRC (International).”

“With the unity of Umno dissidents, Amanah and others, we have a great chance to have a “people’s government” — and it will be a government that is honest with the people.

On what the March 27 gathering hoped to achieve, Zaid said simply “unity” across the nation. “Unity will ensure we have a new system of government after the next election where laws are observed, where corrupt leaders cannot escape punishment, and where civil servants would not dare harbour criminals.

“We must go down to the people and have a thousand ceramah.”

“I went to the Bersih demonstration in Perth. My aim is to call for a vote of no-confidence against Najib,”

Najib has been given too many chances to fix the rot affecting the country.

“That’s why he needs to be removed,” she says.

She also reiterates that institutional reforms are vital to the agenda.

Syed Saddiq says Daim Zainuddin, Shafie Apdal, Zaman Khan, Matthias Chang, and Tony Pua also support the declaration, although they are not present.

PKR Vice President, Nurul Izzah Anwar said the meeting with Tun Mahathir today was aimed at forming a collaboration to ‘save Malaysia’, in reference to several critical national issues.

“This is not personal, not vengeance, not anger. It’s about handling problems and scandals in Malaysia by taking concrete measures to implement reform,”

The Opposition and Dr Mahathir only share the same agenda – to remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak from power,”.

“Dr Mahathir cannot work alone without a political platform for his ideas. Dr Mahathir can join PAS if he’s ever interested in fighting for Islam as a state policy,” he told FMT.

“Dr Mahathir can even work with PAS to fight against tyranny and the lack of transparency in the handling of the nation’s finances.”

“Based on the mature and prosperous politics that has been PAS’ approach, any political cooperation, especially with personalities like Dr Mahathir, Muhyiddin and Mukhriz, will definitely benefit the nation,”
