Multiracial Bersatu a boon to Umno

Mohd Farhan Darwis

Amendments to the Bersatu constitution will see non-Malay members allowed to contest in party polls, as well as the creation of a non-Malay wing. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, August 25, 2020.

BERSATU’S decision to open its membership to all races will help Umno get more Malay seats and support in the 15th general election, said political analysts.

The party led by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin will amend its constitution to allow non-Bumiputeras to join, a necessary move after it accepted as members non-Malay MPs aligned with former PKR No. 2 Mohamed Azmin Ali.

  • This is a clever move to pin down UMNO and prop up Bersatu. Let all single raced and religious parties die a natural cause.

  • UMNO Bersatu were one party. Ruled and wreck the country. Look at the wealth the leaders, their children, their cronies have. Ooo, it's political donation not a corruption. Those who donated got the projects. Bunch of crooks.
