Pakatan Rakyat have recently launched its Orange Book (Buku Jingga),which outlines what it will do when it comes to power.This is quite impressive and gives the Rakyat the confidence of what to expect should PR take over Putrajaya.
The responsibility of executing the Orange Book will obviously fall on the shoulders of the Cabinet.To give the Rakyat further confidence of what to expect,PR should announce its Shadow Cabinet now.Members of this Cabinet should start their work so that they can function immediately,should PR take over Putrajaya.
In this regard ,the issue of who will be the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Ministers,must also be addressed. There is a strong view that we should have 3 Deputy Prime Ministers, one from Semenanjung and one each from Sabah and Sarawak.Lets address this now so that the Rakyat know what will happen and will not be surprised.
Pakatan Rakyat must demonstrate that it is capable of governing and if the issues are worked on now,there is no reason why we cannot have a smooth takeover.Lets give the Rakyat the confidence that we have the people and we can govern.
