To all Malaysians, from Anwar Ibrahim

Dato’Seri Anwar Ibrahim
We stand today on the brink of history. We have reached the last twenty-four hours of a historic campaign that will change Malaysia forever. Across country, we have seen hundreds of thousands of Malaysians of all ethnicities come out to our ceramahs. The response in frontline states such as Johor, Sabah and Sarawak, the heartland and fortresses of Umno and Barisan Nasional, has been tremendous.

In preparation for our first few months of government, I am releasing a Pakatan Rakyat Roadmap outlining key actions that we will undertake in order to fulfill our manifesto promises. As I have always emphasized, the focus of this roadmap must be pro-rakyat and consist of measures that will have both immediate impact, and long-term benefits. These are reforms that BN has never dared to implement, but Pakatan Rakyat has the courage to do so – reforms that will bring back a renaissance, a genuine merdeka and democracy to Malaysia.

I want assure all Malaysians not to fear. This transition will not only be historic, but also peaceful. Pakatan Rakyat’s Security Advisory Council of former generals and police will help myself and other Pakatan Rakyat leaders through the process.

To the rakyat and supporters of Pakatan Rakyat, we thank you for your faith, your courage, and your vision. Sunday’s election will mark the decisive step in an amazing, peaceful, democratic revolution that will take Malaysia into a new era. Let us go out to vote in strength on Sunday. Encourage all your friends, relatives and neighbours to cast their ballots.

I warn the Election Commission and the Caretaker Government again - the rakyat will not tolerate any electoral fraud. We will be vigilant of all suspicious activities. We will ensure that only Malaysians will decide the fate of our nation, and Insyallah, we will succeed.

To all Malaysians: Our nation is a land of promise and fulfillment. Seize your destiny.

Ini kali lah!

Dato’Seri Anwar Ibrahim
