I refer to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak reported statement that “with the 1Malaysia concept, the Barisan Nasional would one day become one party without the components such as Umno, MCA or the MIC, but he pointed out that it was not the time yet.”

It is inspiring to hear from Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak in his openness to accept Barisan Nasional as single party without components when the time is right. Lately, he has being active in making radical reforms even in his own party UMNO.

As such, I would like to propose to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is Barisan Nasional Chairman to start making preparations for Barisan Nasional to be a single party in future, when the time is right.

In this aspect, I would like to propose that the following be considered:-

1.Direct membership of all Malaysians into Barisan Nasional
Existing members from Barisan Nasional’s component party should be allowed to hold dual membership in both Barisan Nasional and its component party. Non existing members of BN component party, such as members of IPF, Makkal Sakthi or any other Malaysians who supports Barisan Nasional’s idealogy be allowed to have direct membership into Barisan Nasional.

2.Barisan Nasional Convention
This is a general assembly of Barisan Nasional to be held annually at both state and national level which would be participated by all members from all its component parties. This convention was supposed to held February this year but was postponed due to the transition of our country’s Prime Minister.

3.Barisan Nasional Secretariat
All current and future state and national activities of Barisan Nasional would be coordinated by this Barisan Nasional Secretariat.

The aforesaid proposals are not meant to request for immediate merger of all Barisan Nasional’s component parties but rather to prepare for any eventualities in future.
