We need a party for all, a party that truly has the needs and aspirations of Malaysians at heart – one with a good mix of all races, women, and youth.

PKR and Amanah were totally rejected, while DAP just managed victory in two seats in the recent Sarawak state election, giving GPS an overwhelming victory on a silver platter.

The reason for this strong rejection by the voters is simple – they are sick and tired over the likes of Anwar Ibrahim, Mat Sabu, Lim Guan Eng, and Lim Kit Siang – the same old faces fronting the Opposition bloc for years.

If after this, these old-timers still do not get the message, then there is surely a need for a strong, multi-racial third force in Malaysian politics.

There have been rumours of a new political party, one that is multi-racial with a focus on more youth and women leaders.

Perhaps this is something the country needs considering the same old faces with their own political agendas having been in the forefront for years.

Maybe it is time for women and youth to take the spotlight. After all judging from countries like New Zealand and Taiwan, women leaders have done wonders for their nations.

Voters are sick and tired of the same old rhetoric and not blind to be able to distinguish between those who are sincere and those out merely for personal gains.

Those with court cases pending, allegations of sexual misconduct, etc, should do the right thing and just bow out of politics.

It is time for a new brand of clean, multi-racial, moderate leaders to come into the picture and lead the nation forward.

We need a party for all, a party that truly has the needs and aspirations of Malaysians at heart – one with a good mix of all races, women, and youth.

If rumours of this third force in Malaysian politics in true, then perhaps this is something the voters have been hoping and waiting for.

We need a credible third force and cannot let the future of our children go down the drain.
