A plea to Rafizi

Rafizi Ramli, I write this letter to humbly request that you and your party give Dr Mahathir Mohamad your 100% support for at least two solid years to make things happen.

Please allow him to use his wisdom to choose who should be his Cabinet members and supporting teams.

His decisions will not be perfect and will not make everyone happy. But by giving him full support, Pakatan Harapan (PH) will remove uncertainties, provide hope and create a steady platform for renewal.

The mood of the country today is that we want less politics and more real work. We want a united front to solve real issues not political party disputes.

The majority of us who voted for Pakatan Harapan (PH) do not belong to any of your component parties. We do not care which party gets which or how many Cabinet posts. What we want is a functional leadership that is able to put things into place.

The majority group of voters who gave PH the numbers needed to win did not vote for PKR, DAP, PPBM or Amanah. We voted for PH lead by Mahathir. So, whether or not one of the component parties has more MPs/seats is completely irrelevant to us voters.

We want all of you to be humble and work as one.
