2020 Ogos 10 (Isnin)

🇲🇾 Early this morning a friend of Acik from England sent Acik an article via WhatsApp. After reading the article (below), Acik decided to keep the interesting article in Acik’s blog. It is not only to be shared with hundreds of Acik’s followers, but also for Acik’s own reference in the future.

Acik’s blog address is so easy to be remembered as for (4) you (u) and (n) I (i) to (2) see (c) i.e. Acik’s blog has been viewed thousands of times (throughout each year) by its followers. They were not only from within Malaysia but also from numerous countries. The positive reception by its followers since 2012 serves as a very powerful motivating factor for Acik to continue writing in it from time to time.

C & P (a v.good analogy)

  1. Malay Politics and Nasi Kandar
    (Opinion column by Tay Tian Yan, Deputy Executive Director, Sin Chew Daily)
    The Malay political market is a bit like the Malay restaurant market near my home. There are several Malay Nasi Kandar restaurants on one street; maybe you think there are many choices, but they are not.

On the street, there is a sign that says Nasi Kandar Original; on the middle on the street is Nasi Kandar Istimewa; at the end of the street is Nasi Kandar Penang. After a few visits, there was no obvious difference; the ingredients were similar, the dishes were similar, and the prices were comparable.

The conclusion is that there are many shops but not many choices. Why? I will attempt to explain.

In the early days, the first shop that sold Nasi Kandar attracted diners when it first started. This attracted another industry players to open a second Nasi Kandar shop. Then there was the third, the fourth…; some of them closed down due to poor business, but new ones still appeared after that.

Similar products competing in the same market trying to attract customers of the same nature. Of course, not everyone will succeed. Some are destined to be eliminated, especially the new ones, which have a greater chance of failure.

For the customers, there is no benefit. Their choices are limited and there will be no new gains. Over time, the taste becomes bland, and the hygiene standards starts to deteriorate.

Mahathir recently organized a new Malay political party which gave me the feeling that of a new Nasi Kandar near my place. Similarly, it targets Malay Muslims and Bumiputeras in the fight for the Malay agenda. It sounds good, if it were to also defend the rights of other ethnic groups.

The same format can be applied to UMNO, PAS, BERSATU, AMANAH, as well as PERKASA Rights Party, S46…

Mahathir claims that the new party is a party that is anti-corruption. It feels like the opening of a new Nasi Kandar restaurant with two papadom crackers on the side to attract customers. However, even the most corrupt political parties will ostensibly hold high the banner of anti-corruption! And the word “anti-corruption” came from the mouth of Tun M, how credible is that?

Of course, the focus is on Tun M’s new party. What are the chances of success? How much influence does it have on Malaysian politics?

To be honest, I am not optimistic at all.

It cannot be denied that Malay nationalism and Islamism are the mainstream of Malay politics. Since the 1960s, UMNO has followed Malay nationalism, while the PAS has followed Islamism. The struggle between UMNO and PAS is a competition between nationalism and Islamism.

Beginning in the 1980s, Mahathir introduced religious elements into UMNO, transforming UMNO into nationalism as well as a religious party. After the death of Nik Aziz, PAS also introduced nationalism and became a religious and nationalist party.

Today, there is no difference between the ideologies of UMNO and PAS, the two parties formed an alliance Muafakat Nasional – which is logical.

However, as long as the two parties do not merge one day, it is as if two Nasi Kandar restaurants will continue to compete.

In terms of ideology, BERSATU and AMANAH are the “Little UMNO” and the “Little PAS”. There is only a brand competition, no market distinction, and no product differentiation.

Since they are “Little UMNO” and the “Little PAS”, they lack heterogeneity in the political market, hence it is difficult to highlight their product positioning. If they were to lose their comparative advantage, they would face difficulties in survival and be inevitably swallowed up by UMNO.

The survival probability of the BERSATU depends on the Prime Minister Muhyiddin, and AMANAH may not be able to withstand the test of the next general election. While Tun M’s new party is a derivative of the BERSATU, which is tantamount to Little BERSATU. It is like a small fry living in the belly of a big fish. BERSATU is still unsustainable, then what of Little BERSATU?

The chairman of the new party is Mahathir and the president is Mukhriz, which is like a father-son party; no matter how it is done, is just a mosquito party.

To open up the existing political market in Malaysia, we cannot organize new and old political parties by the same group of old and troubled politicians. Instead, we must have a new generation of ideals and visions, with innovative ideas and creative thinking, to contribute to Malaysian politics.

It is like Nasi Kandar restaurants, which cannot be copied repeatedly. It will end up lacking flavor, and health standards. Ingredients, cooking, staff, and storefronts must be innovative, and upgraded to a delicious and healthy new national diet.
