‘Outdated’ to try and win Penang with race, religion: PKR man

GEORGE TOWN – A Penang PKR leader has expressed disdain at Bersatu’s rhetoric that Penang would have a Malay chief minister if the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition wins the upcoming state election.

Calling such racial posturing “outdated” and divisive, Jason Ong said that Penang is one of the most racially diverse states in the country and voters here would not simply buy into such ethnic or religious inducement in their campaign material.

The state PKR legal bureau chairman and Kebun Bunga assemblyman said that in reality, no elected representative has won a seat because of just one race of voters.

If such data can be made public, Ong said, it would be seen that even non-Malays voted for PN candidates, although in small numbers.
