He said some haters claimed Warisan is only here to break the Chinese votes. “They threw all sorts of accusations against Warisan because they cannot afford to forgo race-based politics. They embrace and survive politically based on racial politics.

Kota Kinabalu: Parti Warisan plans to contest in Kedah, the heartland of Malays, in the 15th General Election, according to Vice President Datuk Junz Wong. 

He said the party’s official launch in Alor Setar on Saturday signifies that the party is not limited to mixed-ethnicity in the peninsula states but also to Malay-majority Kedah. 

 “Although Kedah is a PAS stronghold and former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir’s state, it does not deter Warisan from penetrating Kedah. 

 “Today is a historically remarkable day for Warisan. It has proven to all Malaysians, some haters, some doubters and some supporters that Warisan is here to stay, to fight for all Malaysians regardless of race and religion,” he said in a statement, Sunday. 

He said some haters claimed Warisan is only here to break the Chinese votes. “They threw all sorts of accusations against Warisan because they cannot afford to forgo race-based politics. They embrace and survive politically based on racial politics. 

“Nonetheless, in reality, Barisan Nasional (BN) is formed by Malay-dominated Umno, Chinese-dominated MCA and Indian-dominated MIC. 

“Although Pakatan Harapan (PH) claims to be multiracial, the coalition itself is mainly formed by Chinese-centric DAP aside from Malay-centric PKR and Amanah. On the other hand, Perikatan National (PN) comprises Malay-oriented Bersatu and PAS as well as Chinese-oriented Gerakan,” he said.

 He said these race-based national parties would not survive long once Warisan expanded nationwide. 

“With a new political culture and system that promotes multiracialism, Malaysians no longer talk about races, religions or extremism. We talk about how to progress as Malaysians without considering our race elements. 

 “To my brothers and sisters in West Malaysia who used to doubt Warisan’s sincere struggle, do consider Warisan seriously now. Warisan is a sole national party that accepts all races from Chinese, Malays, Indians, Iban and Kadazandusun to unite all Malaysians,” he said.

He said since its founding in 2016, Warisan always has had the aspiration to restore the true meaning of Malaysia. Notwithstanding, the journey is challenging and lonely. However, the struggle for a better Malaysia must start now. 

“Help Warisan and our President, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal to fulfil his dream of forming an inclusive Malaysia. It is not purely the responsibility of Warisan. Also of all Malaysians to unite and guarantee a bright future for our future generations. 

“To my brothers and sisters in West Malaysia, it is your call now to decide whether to join Warisan uniting with East Malaysians in Sabah and Sarawak to bring about real change in Malaysia. To restore an inclusive, progressive and multiracial Malaysia we all can be proud of,” he said.
