Malaysia former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad

Former premier Tun Mahathir suggested that Perkasa the Malay rights group has played a role helping Barisan Nasional to secure Malay votes in recent Hulu Selangor parliamentary by-election.

“Maybe because of Perkasa the Malays voted for BN,” he said when asked to comment on MCA suggestion that Chinese voted against BN because of Perkasa.

“How do we know? There are Malays who agrees with BN.”

To question is there a necessity for UMNO to distance itself from Perkasa as what MCA had wanted?

Tun Mahathir sarcastically replied ” well, if MCA can distance itself from the Chinese extremist,”
