I love my country. And I have had the honour of serving my country. And it is because of my abiding love for Malaysia that I also respect the will of our people.
The people have spoken. And they have spoken loud and clear.
We tried our best. But our best was simply not good enough.
To those that still support us, I am sorry we let you down. To those that did not, I respect your decision.
It is now time for those who have been freely chosen by the people of Malaysia to lead our country. Our country can only survive if we observe a smooth and orderly transfer of power. For without the rule of law, we are a nation bereft of justice and fair play.
To the new government and it’s Ministers, look after this blessed nation of ours. Every inch of its land is worth fighting for.
I will hold you accountable on behalf of our people as a member of the opposition. Just as you did previously.
Let us show the world that Malaysia can reunite after all that has been said and done. For all of us to build a better tomorrow. May God bless Malaysia, forever.
