Axed Umno members make up 22pct of Independents
As Umno rushes to stem the tide of dissent within the party by expelling 61 party members who have chosen to contest in the coming general election as Independents, it is interesting to note that these numbers from the Malay nationalist party account for 22 percent of the total 270 Independents contesting in parliament and state seats across Malaysia.
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/opposition 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.
