Irrelevant Ruling Party???

The Chief Minister of the state of Selangor in Malaysia was quoted by Star newspaper that the ruling party, UMNO, could only remain relevant in the future if it continues to struggle and discuss the need to keep the New Economic Policy (NEP) to ensure the interests of the Malays are protected as this was among its priorities.

So, in the other words, the ruling party won't be relevant in Malaysia if the NEP couldn't be maintained. Was that how I understood it or did Star newspaper misquoted it? Or was it that there was nothing else to struggle for apart from the NEP?

The Star newspaper better be careful with what they publish.

Unfortunate but true, Race based politics will always hold us back, there will be no such thing as National Unity till we discard of Race based political parties & Race based government policies.
