1Malaysia is better than middle path Malaysia

The eight values of 1Malaysia as articulated by Najib Razak are perseverance, a culture of excellence, acceptance, loyalty, education, humility, integrity, and meritocracy.

It strongly emphasizes national unity, ethnic tolerance, and government efficiency.

The DAP’s “middle path” strategy, also named “Middle Malaysia”, was announced by party secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, at the party’s 15th national conference.

They wanted to show that the opposition was providing an alternative and fighting "for fair and equality for all Malaysians".

The strategy aim at projecting a collective image of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and broaden their common ground as they see slogans are not enough to draw support from people, instead the government must appeal to all communities.

In the past, DAP had found itself to be the target of those who branded the party as "a Chinese chauvinist establishment out to erode the special privileges of the Malays and undermine Islam, the national religion".

It is just like Information communication and culture minister Dr Rais Yatim said, DAP's "middle path" strategy being like “the owl pining for the moon” (Pungguk rindukan bulan) and the moon will not drop unless if Allah wills it."
