A very helpful forum to help discern the results of the historical shift in national politics as a result of GE14 election.

    4. Challenges identified
    1. )     Tun Dr. Mahathir should be given space and the time to appoint his cabinet and deliver on the PH’s promises.
    2. )     The rule of law should take its course in dealing with the impending corruption cases involving people in the past administration.
    3. )     The people should take advantage of the new climate of transparency and accountability to put their concerns for good and just governance in the country. Should not over-emphasize inter-religious issues.
    4. )     All sectors of society, including religious groups should send their memos to the Committee on Institutional reforms. Dialogues with newly appointed Ministers should be organized if there are specific concerns.
    5. )     CCM should organize another forum some months later to update on progress of concerns close to the heart of churches.
