Harakah reformasi pada dasarnya adalah suatu proses perubahan yang didorong oleh semangat dan cita-cita luhur bangsa Malaysia guna mewujudkan kembali kehidupan masyarakat semasa dan mendatang yang lebih baik. Cita-cita luhur ini akan dapat dicapai melalui pemerintahan yang demokratis, bersih dan berwibawa yang mampu pula menegakkan kedaulatan UU. Melalui pemerintahan demokrasi ini, amalan-amalan KKN yang selama ini telah menghambat pembangunan nasional akan dapat dibenteras.

Move to woo investors:PETALING JAYA: The new coalition state governments of Selangor, Perak, Penang, Kedah and Kelantan have vowed to implement business-friendly free-market policies to stimulate growth, attract foreign investment and promote greater accountability and transparency in government dealings.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who has assumed the role of spokesperson for the opposition, said the five state governments would initiate dialogues with the foreign investment community already present in each state.
"This is to ensure investor confidence remains strong during the transition period and also to identify areas of concern that our new state governments will address in enhancing and improving their operations and performance in Malaysia.
"Our no-tolerance policy on corruption will have a major impact in reducing transaction costs and building confidence in small- and medium-based enterprises."
Anwar also said PKR's Malaysian Economic Agenda would be implemented at the state level to reduce race-based affirmative action policies and to implement a more competitive, merit-based system.
When asked whether the Barisan Nasional's New Economic Policy would be scrapped, Anwar said there would be a major adjustment to the affirmative action programme.
He said the opposition-led state governments, guided by the constitutional guarantee to protect Malay privileges, would ensure fair treatment for non-Malays.
He added that they would also respect and honour business agreements and arrangements made by the previous state governments.

Hadi: Reject all inducements by BN: PAS has called on elected representatives in the three opposition parties to reject any enticement to cross over to Barisan Nasional.
Rumours are flying that millions of ringgit have been offered to effect crossovers, particularly in Perak where the opposition parties hold only a three-seat majority over the BN’s 28 in the state legislature.
In particular, the racial card is purportedly being played out among Malay elected representatives in PKR and PAS - including the spectre of racial conflict - as a way to convince them to join Umno.
At a press conference today in party headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang said he wants them to “remain steadfast” and work towards strengthening the opposition-led state governments.
“God-willing, we will walk together to carry out reforms in the administration of all these states to rid them of such negative practices as corruption, cronyism and nepotism which will lead to (other) injustice(s),”he said.
He was flanked by secretary-general Kamaruddin Jaafar and information chief Mahfuz Omar.
Asked if PAS leaders had been approached by Umno leaders to cross over, he replied cryptically: “PAS is me. They have never contacted me.”
In the 12th general election concluded last Saturday, opposition parties wrested control of an unprecedented five state assemblies - Penang, Perak, Kedah, Selangor and Kelantan - and DAP, PKR and PAS have worked out varying arrangements for ‘coalition state governments’.
Abdul Hadi also said those elected must remember that the votes came from all Malaysians, and should not see themselves as representing only one ethnic or religious group.
“We hope these (racial or religious) issues are not invoked - as BN is currently doing - as it will only make matters worse,” he said.
He further cautioned them against exacting “revenge”.
“Those who lost are our people, just as those who won are our people. Do not exact revenge. We have to demonstrate that we are fair to everyone.”
