Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has officially taken over as the country's sixth Prime Minister. The handing over ceremony was held at the Prime Minister's office a few minutes ago. This morning Najib took oath as Prime Minister as Istana Negara. Also present were former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. My heartiest congratulations to the incoming Prime Minister. It is sincerely hoped that Datuk Najib would continue his one Malaysia policy, thereby uniting all races in this blessed nation. I also hope the nation's various race related problems would see light, especially that effecting the Indian community. We are still awaiting for various mechanisms to be put in place for Indians to catch up with other main races in terms of economy. Increased participation of Indians in the government also remains an unfulfilled promised. The increase of Indian equity participation is also yet to be resolved. Training of our youth and job opportunities for them also seem to have yet to be answered.
These are only part of Indian problems, Datuk Najib needs to address to attract Indian voters into the Barisan Nasional.
All the best to you sir.

Nominations for the two bukits and one batang closed yesterday. It was a record 15 candidates in Bkt Selambau, three in Bukit Gantang and two in Batang Ai. The crowded field in Bkt Selambau is made up of independents except from one candidate each from BN and Pakatan. Was at the nomination of Selambau and all went well. Now for the hardest part of convincing the voters to pick BN.
