Despite the new Malaysia ruled under the Pakatan Harapan government, the practice or perception of corruption is still on the rise.

 

Both the government and the public must have the will to curb corruption. Public awareness and education are required in order to understand the need to do so for the betterment of our future generation. We cannot go far if this scourge of corruption is not to be dealt with seriously.

 

Anti-corruption initiatives where Gerakan, in partnership with government and private sector, raise awareness and works not only to combat corruption, but to build integrity, have a higher success rate in terms of systematic designing out corruption. 

 

We know the government machinery, especially the police and local authorities are the most common bodies to be bribed. Small and medium-sized enterprises are paying off local officials to expedite business procedures. It happens every day in all walks of our lives.

 

"As such, I will push for a special task force or bureau in Parti Gerakan to fight corruption at all levels. This is so with the new leadership after the party election in November" said the deputy youth chief Andy Yong.

 

"Gerakan can play a major role if we are brave to act and be the eyes and ears of the MACC.  For a start, I will form a team to monitor loanshark activities, police blocks and handle public complaints. In the event of any threat, we should not be afraid of the underworld societies or police in all our actions" added Andy.

 

 

Strengthening legal systems is also crucial and Gerakan can advocate for clearer and stronger anti-corruption laws by working with the government or MACC to combat corruption.
