This will be the first State Assembly sitting under the leadership of the new Pakatan Rakyat (People's Alliance) state government. Since yesterday, Dr. Nasir’s office have been sending out emails and sms to as many residents associations, groups and individuals in Kota Damansara as possible.

“It is our promise to our people in our manifesto. We promised to have continuous dialogue and a feedback from the people on issues that ought to be debated in the State Assembly”, explained Dr. Nasir. “Socialism is about people’s participation at all levels of the state administration, this is how we hope to develop true people’s democracy”.

Since yesterday, questions, proposals and ideas have been pouring in through the email and sms from the Kota Damansara rakyat. Some have commended his initiative of being the first to launch such a feedback system to prepare for the State Assembly.

“We hope to streamline the questions, and put forward as many as we can. We too hope our key issues will be debated in the Assembly” added Dr. Nasir.
