Mahathir Mohamad's Report Card

May 09, 2019 marked the first full year of Pakatan Harapan in power. 

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad (left) is upbeat about Malaysia, despite setbacks stemming from legacy issues from the previous BN administration. 

On that day, he presented his report card on his administration, informing Malaysians that the government’s performance was based on 464 initiatives, which are policies and specific actions that are stated in each election pledge – as written in PH’s GE14 manifesto. 

He then announced that 39% of the pledges made during GE14 had already been fulfilled. 

To be honest, given the massive challenges faced by the government – it is a more than decent achievement. 

Former minister Rafidah Aziz added that the report card on PH’s first anniversary only reflects 20 percent of their term. 

“We must allow the full run of the five years before coming to any judgement and evaluation of the Pakatan Government. God willing, PH will be able to meet the expectations of the rakyat before they come out again in four years’ time in PRU 15 (next general election)”, she said matter-of-factly. 

Even Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown had called on Malaysians to be patient as PH work to make the nation better. 

It is pertinent to point out that grave damage from the previous Najib Razak’s government had affected national recovery – so, to be fair, PH will need more time. 

When all’s said and done, at least Mahathir’s PH Cabinet has one year's experience now. So, things can only get better.

This photo of my Competent Communication manual was taken on Thursday – one of 5 copies I am left with. This is copy No. 59.

Once I am done with all five manuals, I will have completed 60 CC manuals or 600 CC speeches todate. This should be a record-breaking achievement, I think.

That was the day I attended the OneWorld Toastmasters meeting – where I had been given a speaking slot. 

Of course, I took the opportunity to deliver a speech and it was for a CC #2 Organize your Speech titled The Clock is Ticking. 

And I am planning to secure another twenty-five speaking slots in the next 4 months (May-August) to ensure I stay on track with my 800-speech KPI.
