Taking the shine off Najib's glowing GNI claims

MP SPEAKS The ETP Annual Report for 2012 prepared by Pemandu and launched by Prime Minister Najib Razak with great fanfare is nothing more than a public relations effort.

The report has been written and delivered as part of the electioneering effort mounted by a government desperately attempting to convey to a disbelieving electorate a picture of progress and achievements together with promises of attaining the promised land of a High Income country by 2020.

Taken as a whole, the report is a document that attempts to project illusions, highly massaged selective facts to lull the electorate. The primary objective is to gain a return to power at all costs.
