YOURSAY | ‘He will also face the ROS roadblock like Pejuang and Muda…’
COMMENT | What is KJ waiting for?
Milshah: Malaysiakini columnist Mariam Mokhtar made a good attempt of describing how a new Malaysia should be, like many other political strategists and commentators.
She suggested for Umno’s Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin to form a multiracial party of his own. However, the party will lose big in the elections for it does not have support in the rural areas.
This is the same problem faced by multiracial parties like DAP and PKR, and they have been in politics longer. The urban areas are already controlled by DAP and PKR.
So Khairy’s hypothetical party will actually be fighting against DAP and PKR for the smaller number of seats in urban areas. Real politics trumps idealistic politics every time.
OrangePony5652: We all know starting a new political party is not an easy feat. Getting enough members to make it relevant is one thing and having it registered is another.
The woes of Parti Pejuang Tanahair and the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) in registering their parties came to a dead end with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) nonchalantly blocking them.
Khairy is too smart to willingly go through this difficult process. He will remain in Umno Baru, or Umno Terkini, for now.
OrangePanther1466: Mariam, I often agree with your views but in this instance, Khairy starting a new party is a non-starter. Umno’s extensive party network is almost impossible to replicate.
I suspect that's the real reason why many disillusioned leaders have not abandoned the party and decided to fight from within.
Umno's wealth amassed over the years is also another incentive for them to stay. For the very same reasons, the Umno supreme council slots are highly coveted while the presidency is the mother lode.
YellowKoala7998: I still cannot see any capable persons in Umno Baru or ‘lama’ or any splinter group coming up. To me, it's still from the same pond, or ponds, that they used to jump around - from A to B, to C, and then back to A.
As long as the issue of Malay supremacy is ingrained into their minds, nothing will ever change. They have no multicultural or multiracial sentiments to show to the new ‘social media’ generation.
Anonymous_47029368: Actually, whether a party is multiracial or not is not that much of a matter. What is much more important is that it must put the interest of the country first and follow the letter and spirit of the Federal Constitution in protecting the rights of the minorities.
I believe Umno was rejected by the people in the 14th general election not because it is not multiracial but because they put their party first, ignoring the huge damage done to the country because of the 1MDB scandal.
Kutan: Electing Umno’s president is not up to the Malaysian voters. So, Khairy may have support among the general public, but when it comes to the party election, the grassroots and their division heads will elect someone who furthers their interests, mostly involving money and power.
