The new Prime Minister has sent out unmistakable indications that he wants to be an inclusive leader of all Malaysians.
Just days before he was sworn in, he made a lightning visit to Sin Chew Daily, the most influential paper in the Chinese media, and also gave out allocations to Tamil schools.
That he is doing all this in his first few days as Prime Minister sends an unmistakable signal that he is an inclusive Prime Minister who wants to reach out to all Malaysians.
He is rebuilding the political goodwill that a leader needs to survive as evident in his maiden speech on TV last night. He granted amnesty to ISA detainees and withdrew the ban on two political publications.
