RUKUN NEGARA The Rukunegara or sometimes Rukun Negara (Malay for "National Principles") is the Malaysian declaration of national

philosophy instituted by royal proclamation on Merdeka Day, 1970, in reaction to a serious race riot known as the May 13 Incident which occurred in 1969. The incident proved at that time that Malaysian racial balance and stability was fragile at best. Immediately thereafter, the Malaysian government sought ways to foster unity among Malaysians. One of the methods used to encourage unity is the Rukunegara. The word Rukunegara can refer to the whole declaration, the words after the preamble (beginning Maka kami...) or the five principles alone. WHEREAS OUR COUNTRY, MALAYSIA nurtures the ambitions of:
    

achieving a more perfect unity amongst the whole of her society; preserving a democratic way of life; creating a just society where the prosperity of the country can be enjoyed together in a fair and equitable manner; guaranteeing a liberal approach towards her rich and varied cultural traditions; and building a progressive society that will make use of science and modern technology.

NOW, THEREFORE WE, the people of Malaysia, pledge to concentrate the whole of our energy and efforts to achieve these ambitions based on the following principles:
    

BELIEF IN GOD LOYALTY TO KING AND COUNTRY THE SUPREMACY OF THE CONSTITUTION THE RULE OF LAW COURTESY AND MORALITY

KEPERCAYAAN KEPADA TUHAN KESETIAAN KEPADA RAJA DAN NEGARA KELUHURAN PERLEMBAGAAN KEDAULATAN UNDANG-UNDANG KESOPANAN DAN KESUSILAAN THIRTY-SIX years ago, our national ideology, the Rukun Negara, was proclaimed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at the launch of the Merdeka Day celebrations in 1970.

1 MALAYSIA
1Malaysia is intended to provide a free and open forum to discuss the things that matter deeply to us as a Nation. It provides a chance to express and explore the many perspectives of our fellow citizens. What makes Malaysia unique is the diversity of our peoples. 1Malaysia‘s goal is to preserve and enhance this unity in diversity which has always been our strength and remains our best hope for the future. I hope this website will initiate an open and vital dialogue exploring

our Malaysian identity, our purpose, and direction. I encourage each of you to join me in defining our Malaysia and the role we must play in its future. Each of us – despite our differences – shares a desire for a better tomorrow. Each of us wants opportunity, respect, friendship, and understanding. Figuring out One Malaysia What is One Malaysia? This has been troubling supporters of UMNO since Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak announced it in his maiden speech as prime minister nine days ago. Opposition parties have claimed it mirrored the Malaysian Malaysia concept championed by the DAP and, before that, the PAP under Lee Kuan Yew when Singapore was part of Malaysia. This claim has troubled Barisan Nasional politicians aiming to regroup after the coalition‘s disastrous Election 2008 outing. Today, the UMNO-owned Mingguan Malaysia (read above) refuted that connotation in an opinion piece and put in perspective that One Malaysia means no one in the country will be sidelined but affirmative action policies will continue. In not too many words, it remains faithful to the two planks of the National Economic Policy (NEP) – the eradication of poverty irrespective of race and economic restructuring that was launched by Najib‘s father Tun Abdul Razak Hussein in the aftermath of the May 13 race riots. The opinion piece headlined ‗Satu Malaysia versi sebenar‘ by Awang Selamat, a pseudonym used by the newspaper‘s editors, allayed fears that Najib will end the NEP and ensure equality for all. Among others, Awang wrote, it included elements of development based on unity and integration, the people‘s interests and excellence to push the country‘s progress, adding he was glad when Najib denied it had anything to do with a ‗Malaysian Malaysia‘ although the government would be fair to all races to transform the country. ―Awang hopes the true version of One Malaysia is understood clearly. The affirmative policies to help the Malays who really poor and left behind (compared to other races) will continue. ―Indeed there is a need to continue the affirmative policies due to historical realities and the social contract while the government intensifies efforts to increase the quality of life for all,‖ he wrote. While Mingguan Malaysia, which enjoys wide circulation in Malaysia‘s rural areas where Umno still commands majority support and respect, has made its definition, it remains to be seen how Najib will put the slogan into action. However, it is clear that the concept will not work with a top-down approach as Malaysians become more aware of the power of their vote and are willing to shop around for a political party or coalition more in tune with their desires and needs.

Prime Minister Najib has instructed the National Civics Bureau or Biro Tata Negara (BTN) to use its courses and seminars to educate present and future civil servants.[3] Najib has identified six major policy areas in which KPIs will play an especially important role in improving the effectiveness of the Malaysian government. and community leaders about 1Malaysia and promote national unity. was appointed Minister Without a Portfolio and CEO of Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu). ―We will ensure that the BTN courses also inculcate the 1Malaysia concept and its eight values. upgrades to rural infrastructure. accuracy.whether they are satisfied with our service. the former CEO of Malaysia Airlines. deputy ministers.
