Congratulations to the new Pakatan Harapan government — CCM

MAY 27 — The heads of churches of the Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) wish to extend their heartiest congratulations to the leaders of Pakatan Harapan for their successful victory at the polls of the 14th General Elections of our country.

We also extend our congratulations to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad who helms the government as the seventh prime minister.

The results of the elections has shown us the will of the people to urge the government to set forth on a reform agenda to restore confidence in the basic institutions of government and to cultivate a clean, accountable and just culture of governance.

We join all our fellow Malaysians to give thanks to God for the new moment that has dawned upon the nation. We make a fresh start to recommit ourselves to working together to rebuild our nation on the principles of justice, peace and harmony among all races and religions.

We have called upon our churches to offer special prayers for the nation, its government, its leaders and all the civil servants who bear the responsibility to taking our nation in a new direction of prosperity and happiness for all its citizens.

Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people. — Proverbs 14:34
