If you do follow the political saga, I am sure you must be anxious to know what will happen this coming 16th of September. I for once, felt that our country is finally shaken from the grave where leadership lack of integrity from the current government are being challenged for the goodness of Malaysia.
Yes I know, for some of us would find politics is one of the toughest subjects on earth to talk about. Having said that, most of my friends and relatives have been constantly discussing about this lately. Everyone is asking each other “What is the probability of Anwar Ibrahim to form a federal government by September 16th?”. Let’s get updated from Malaysiakini since our MSM is kinda controlled by our govt.
“The opposition is confident it will secure the defection of at least 30 members from the ruling Barisan Nasional government – the number needed to unseat the government of Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi, Anwar said.”
“MALAYSIAN opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said on Saturday he is on track to meet a mid-September deadline to recruit enough members of parliament to topple the government.

Whether 916 is going to happen or not, I know many of us are sick and tired of the BN’s administration. It seems like Anwar Ibrahim is the only anticipating hope for distressed nation.
Now should come September 16 or later, and Anwar Ibrahim successfully unseat the current government; what would you want the new PM to do for you?
My only burning desire is to re-look into our education system and ensure the standards are not being lowered. I just can’t understand why students are sweeping 14 to 17 A1s in SPM and yet they can’t even speak proper English. My father once told me that the best system was the one used in the early 60’s. Primary school students were given a choice to study in either Chinese, Malay, Tamil or English medium schools but once they enter secondary level, all students must strictly use English in the subjects of Mathematics and Science. Parents would know which medium is suitable for their children. And of course to gain a pass into secondary level, students must ensure to achieve at least a “B” for English and BM. If not, they should be retained for another year as how the Chinese schools used to have Remove classes to strengthen the students’ language proficiency. For what I know many of the primary school children today cannot even comprehend Science and Mathematics’ questions in the English language because their vocabulary range is often limited at this young age. Isn’t it better for the children to master the language first before applying it in Science and Mathematics? Thus, more periods of English should be allocated to improve the current standards of English in the primary schools. By the time they enter secondary level, they will be more prepared to learn Science and Mathematics in English when the language has been grilled with solid foundation in primary level.
I wish to list down all the things I want Anwar and his new cabinet to look into if he succeeds the 916. But at this moment, I will only highlight this as education plays a vital role in order for the country to progress.
Apart from the blabla’s that I have mentioned, what do you have in mind? What do you want Anwar to do for you and the country IF he becomes the PM?
