Umno - from monarch to plebeian
COMMENT Everything has changed for Umno, but nothing has changed within Umno.
It used to be that Umno got what Umno wanted. So powerful was the party, it was monarch of all it surveyed on the Malaysian political stage.
The gaudy theatre of the just-completed annual general assembly last week could not hide the salience of the new reality that Umno no longer rules the roost in Malaysian politics.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
