Umno is good for democracy

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

Ever since Dr. Mahathir Mohamad got the fright of his life when Tengku
Razaleigh Hamzah came within a whisker of defeating him in the 1987
Umno elections, Umno has devised a system of electoral nominations
within the party that can only be politely described as “innovative”
since it is designed exclusively to benefit the Umno President and
those whom he favours. This article, written in 2004 by Abang Benet, is just as relevant today as it was then.

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
