Let's reform the ACA next

It has taken over 20 years but short of an apology, the government has finally decided to come out clean. The Prime Minister has announced the formation of a Judicial Appointments Commission to help him choose judges.
He has also proposed change to make the process of nominating, appointing and promoting judges more transparent and representative.
The PM should go one step further now - please free the Anti-Corruption Agency. It should be made independent and answerable only to Parliament.
If we are serious about ending graft and kickbacks, which has escalated building and production costs, then we must have more reforms in fighting corruption. After all, it was one of Pak Lah's promise in 2004. Surely he has not forgotten his promises.

Chun Wai, I can start seeing your old self coming back into the online news and the blogs. This is a good sign that you are now exercising some freedom to give a fairer coverage of news. Please keep this up and God Bless You.
Unfortunately your printed Star paper is still tied up in chains. I hope your MCA bosses wake up. It would be better if they just close MCA and join Pakatan.

YES Pak Lah. keep it up, and take it further. Let the judicial report to the Agong. Get rid os ISA. Beef up and free up ACA. Put some big BN crooks and murderers in jail for big time corruption. Do all these good deeds before you hand over UMNO to the buayas that are calling for your resignation. The Rakyat will be grateful to you and you shall be immortalized in Malaysian history as the chosen one that free us from the chains of mahathirism.
