THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT, CONGRATULATIONS HALIMAH YACOB, SINGAPORE

Saya mewakili parti Islam dari Malaysia, Parti AMANAH Negara (AMANAH) dan sayap wanitanya, Angkatan Wanita AMANAH Negara (AWAN) Nasional mengucapkan tahniah kepada Halimah Yacob dan Singapura kerana telah melakar sejarah penting dengan mengangkat seorang wanita yang pertama sebagai presiden republik itu.

Saya percaya ini semua tidak mungkin berlaku jika kualiti demokrasi tidak dilaksanakan dengan berkesan di samping mutu pendidikan serta sistem meritokrasi yang meyakinkan yang membuka peluang kepada semua bangsa dan agama untuk mencapai kejayaan.

Tatkala dunia masih bergelut dengan isu-isu regresif berkaitan wanita dan Islamofobia, saya yakin dengan kemunculan Halimah Yacob berimej muslimah sebagai pemimpin dari negara maju ini, boleh membantu mengubah naratif buruk itu.

Golongan wanita dari seluruh dunia sudah tentu berbangga dengan pencapaian ini dan mengharapkan agar Halimah Yacob boleh membentuk satu model pentadbiran negara yang bercitrakan kewanitaan yang menekankan keharmonian dan kestabilan.

Sudah tentu, pencapaian ini juga akan memberi inspirasi kepada lebih ramai golongan wanita untuk menyertai bidang politik dan kepimpinan peringkat nasional.

I represent the Opposition Islamic party Amanah from Malaysia and I would like to congratulate Halimah Yacob and Singapore for making history by appointing the first woman to be the president of the republic.

I believe this is unlikely to happen if the quality of democracy is not being implemented effectively in addition to the quality of education and a convincing meritocratic system that provides opportunities for all races and religions to achieve success.

As the world is still struggling with regressive issues regarding women and Islamophobia, I am convinced that with the emergence of Halimah Yacob as Muslim leader of this developed nation, it can help to change the narrative.

Women from all over the world are certainly proud of this achievement and hope that Halimah Yacob can form an iconic image that emphasizes harmony and stability.

Of course, this achievement will also inspire more women to participate in politics and national level leadership.
