What we stand for

G25 is committed to pursue a just, democratic, peaceful, tolerant, harmonious, moderate and progressive multi-racial, multi cultural, multi religious Malaysia through Islamic principles of Wassatiyah (moderation) and Maqasid Syariah (well-being of the people) that affirms justice, compassion, mercy, equity.

Malaysia is to be led by rule of law, good governance, respect for human rights and upholding the institution of the country.

We aim to ensure, raise awareness, promote that Syariah laws and civil laws should work in harmony and that the Syariah laws are used within its legal jurisdiction and limits as provided for by the federal and state division of powers.

There should be rational dialogues to inform people on how Islam is used for public law and policy that effects the multi ethnic and multi religious Malaysia and within the confines of the Federal Constitution, the supreme law of the nation.

We work in a consultative committee of experts to advise the government and facilitate amendments to the state Syariah laws, to align to the Federal Constitution and the spirit of Rukun Negara.

It is imperative to achieve a politically stable, economically progressive Malaysia and to be able to enjoy the harmony, tolerance, understanding and cooperation in this multi diverse country.

Make civil servants earn pay hikes and bonuses, says former Treasury sec-gen

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 5 — The public service must justify their increments and bonuses as is the case with the private sector, said former Treasury secretary-general Tan Sri Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim.

While saying he was not averse to raising benefits for public workers, Sheriff stressed that taxpayers must be convinced of the wisdom in doing so, as the cost would ultimately be paid for using public funds.

Sheriff added that workers in the private sector not only must meet set targets to get their bonuses, but were also not certain of receiving an annual pay raise.

“The really bad ones may even be asked to leave the company. For those who get increments and bonuses, some get less and some get more, depending on performance,” he said in a statement sent to Malay Mail Online.

He added that since civil servants already enjoyed additional benefits such as medical care, pensions, and housing benefits, the government must refrain from showering the group with undue rewards when it tables the Budget for 2018.

Putrajaya will submit next year’s federal spending plan to Parliament later this month.

The 14th general election is also due no later than August 2018, increasing speculation that an election budget will be proposed.

Sheriff then cautioned that taxpayers would closely watch if increasing benefits for the public sector would cause financial constraints that subsequently lead to a deterioration in public services.
