Straits Times gives hints of vital benefits from Opposition’s victory in the upcoming polls.
Derwin Pereira wrote for Singapore Straits Times.
He remarked that the era after the next general election in Malaysia will be a watershed for the winning political party.
- The interaction between economics and ethnicity will threaten to bring the Malaysia into destruction again after four decades.
- The journalist stated that in 1969, the Malays were largely impoverished, and therefore had relatively little to lose from a riot. But now the case will change the opposite way.
Commentator Koon Yew Yin quoted:” The Malays will be the biggest losers if there is another 13 riot.”
3. Derwin Pereira is unfinished with his criticism against Umno. He added that Umno had been weakened considerably by corruption, cronyism and nepotism. These had caused fury in Chinese, Indian and middle-income and lower-income Malays.
4. East Malaysian bumiputeras who are Christians, have strayed away from BN in the midst of the growing Islamisation of Malaysian life that has divided great differences between Umno and PAS.
5. Apart from appreciating PM Najib’s reforms for liberalising foreign investment and relieving some of the strictures of the NEP (New Economic Policy), Derwin despised the uncouth resistance from Umno members whose economics interests were threatened by the reducing of the NEP’s pro-Malay bias.
6. Judging blindly, the writer advocated the charismatic leader of opposition PKR – Anwar Ibrahim. PR sees Anwar as the natural inheritance for Malaysian premier since his he has striven to build during and after his imprisonment.
7. Derwin seized opportunities to boost PR’s claims that their party could perform better than what Umno could offer; multiracial alternative to the ruling coalition besides the presence of PAS that offers both advantages and disadvantages for Anwar and his PKR.
8. PR will have to deal with their voters’ differences should they win in the next election. Beginning with pointing out all the wrongs to BN’s government, PR will have to overcome ideological differences and recreate when their party become important roles in the government.
9. PAS, would be seen as a thorn in PR’s flesh. As compared to Umno, PAS is more threatening for their stand in hudud law. PAS’ main supporters are the devout, rural Muslims who are caught in the wedge between them with wider Malaysian people including those of intelligentsia who are less devout.
10. PAS focuses on religion over race. But when they are caught between Malays and religion, PAS would be on a delicate position to remain neutral especially when PR decides to reform a genuinely post-NEP that creates opportunity and distributes rewards on the basis of merit.
The issue of ‘meritocracy’ has been the vital ambition for PR as soon as they have gained power in Malaysia.
Derwin Pereira is a scheming writer at being a propaganda campaign for DAP and PKR. The writer ignores all the immorality, vicious and evil strategic of Anwar Ibrahim who would commit any wrongdoings for the sake of his self-interest. Derwin Pereira refutes any information of cronyisms, corruptions, nepotism, LGBT, lies, apostasy, pluralism, libertarianisms and slander committed by PKR with its leader and PAS.
