PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today called on the civil servants to work with the government leadership to bring about change to bring back the country to its glorious days.
Addressing the staff of the Prime Minister’s Department, his first meeting with them since his appointment as Prime Minister last Nov 24, here today, Anwar said civil servants need to bring the spirit of “islah” (bringing back a situation to a correct, accurate and appropriate state) for the sake of the country.
Reform is required for the country to change, he said, adding that Malaysia had reached a certain level before, but unfortunately it had declined in terms of economy, stability and discipline.
“We may not be successful if the civil service is not with me,“ he said.
