Boss of 3rd-Classers

Santhara picked as first chief of Bersatu’s associate wing

Segamat MP Edmund Santhara Kumar was the first non-Bumiputera elected representative to join Bersatu in 2020.

PETALING JAYA: Bersatu’s Supreme Council has unanimously agreed to appoint Segamat MP Edmund Santhara Kumar as the first chief of the party’s associate wing.

Santhara, the deputy tourism, arts and culture minister, became the first non-Bumiputera MP to join Bersatu in August 2020.

“The Bersatu Supreme Council congratulates him on his appointment and believes that it will be able to attract the participation of more associate members and further increase the rakyat’s support for Bersatu,” said party secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin in a statement.

Hamzah said the decision was reached at yesterday’s Bersatu Supreme Council meeting.

    COMMENT | "Starting now, MCA can accept associate members from among non-Chinese," said MCA secretary-general Chong Sin Woon, which means the party wants to have non-voting, non-Chinese associate members as a fig leaf to their race-based agendas and policies.

    I have no idea why the MCA would do something like this now. Which is worse, being a non-voting, non-Chinese associate member in a race-based party or being a non-voting, non-Chinese associate member in a race-based party which has lost its influence in the Chinese community the party claims to represent?...

    .....this idea that the MCA is accepting non-Chinese associate members is the most ridiculous thing in a political terrain filled with howlers.

    Do not get me wrong. I am sure the MCA has a history of advocating on behalf of the non-Chinese community but the same could be said of any race-based party. It is all part of the subterfuge that race-based parties represent, or at least theoretically could represent, the interests of all Malaysians.

    But we know that this is a complete lie....
