Analysts say M'sia has most unequal society in SE Asia
Institut Rakyat says the Bumiputera Economic Empowerment programme announced by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is directed at appeasing the Malay right-wing group Perkasa.
It is also aimed at strengthening Najib's bid to defend his Umno presidency and ward off any impression that BN has lost the popular vote.
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.
