KUALA LUMPUR – The allegation that the Malays will lose their power to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia in the future is not true.

On the contrary, the lecturer at the Human Ecology Faculty of Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Prof Dr Jayum Jawan said, the Malays will not lose their power to rule the country as the majority race of the nation has the greatest number of seats in Dewan Rakyat.

“The bumiputera need not worry as none of the party wins the majority, regardless, the Prime Minister will be a Malay. In the past, yesterday, tomorrow, the Malays will be the Prime Minister.

“People say that the Malays will lose their power in the land of the Malays and that is not true as they did not read or misread the political facts.

“If they read the political facts, the Malays will not lose their power. When a GE is held, parties that win will appoint a Malay as the PM, not the Chinese, Indian or from Sabah and Sarawak,” said the lecturer who is also a political analyst.

According to Prof Dr Jayum, majority Malay seats are the determining factor to the choice of the Prime Minister candidate.

With that, he said, the Malays in the country will continue to determine the majority power in determining who would lead the government.

“A total of 125 Parliamentary seats are Malays predominant seats. That would determine who would become the Prime Minister, not the Chinese as they only have 39 seats. The Indians do not have any seats. Not even one. I didn’t say so, look at the facts.

“Sabah and Sarawak have only 51 seats. The combination of Sabah and Sarawak could be the king maker of which Malay group could rule,” he added. –MalaysiaGazette
