Abstract

It is a must for the Malaysian Institute of Integrity to lay down its definitive idea about integrity, so as to guide the development of a Malaysian integrity framework properly. Through it is not an attempt to nullify the value-laden terminology of 'corruption',what it does signify is the focus of discourses and initiatives must be on positive system-building as a whole rather than limiting it on negative issues. It is also not a restatement of denial; in fact it simply brings about a fervent hope that all is not loss as yet where good governance regime is concerned. By Malaysian, what it means is that the contents must incorporate the ideals and idea to uphold National Constitution, the supremacy of the Parliament institution and its Democratic rule of law, as well as the explicit declaration of oath-binding loyalty to King and Country. These are after all the three integral principles of Rukunegara, a document for which its architect commented has long been forgotten despite its corresponding display at the back of each school exercise books. In a more serious note, the first and the last principles of Rukunegara, namely the individual Belief in God and its natural outcome of Good behavior and morality, could very well be the saving grace to be our guiding principles in internalizing the meaning of integrity uniquely in our own mold.
