Anwar urges govt to improve current Bumi institutions

The government should concentrate on improving the performance of Bumiputera-led institutions, said Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar said that before contemplating new and alternative affirmative action measures, improvements should be made to current organizations that serve the majority population.

According to him, the current sector must be boosted while avoiding additional racial tensions and ambiguity for Malays and Bumiputeras.

“As such, I request that the prime minister and government prioritize consolidating and strengthening existing Bumiputera institutions, which is a significant task to overcome given our terrible past with these institutions,” he added.

Anwar proposed that the government select the brightest Bumiputera and those with appropriate expertise to lead these organizations and institutions.

In Dewan Rakyat, he remarked that those having a record of embezzling Bumiputera money, let it not be for political consideration and cronyism that jobs be handed directly to them while compromising the name and reputation of the Bumiputeras.
