This is my two cents worth on this matter.The Malays either urban or semi-urban have realised the NEP was being misused and the benefits are reaped only by the UMNOputras and cronies. Under the guise of NEP only a certain group benefits while others are left to fend for themselves. Malays are disillusioned with the NEP and sooner the ruling party comes to grip with it the better it will be for all.

KUALA LUMPUR: The election results signal the beginning of the possible demise
of the New Economic Policy (NEP) and special rights for the Malays, said Datuk
Seri Nazri Aziz.

The Umno supreme council member said it appeared that the Malays, especially in
the town areas, had become more confident now and felt they could compete with
the other races on a level playing field.

“We (Umno) have to really sit down and think. It looks like the educated Malays
do not care about Malay rights anymore,” he said when contacted.

“The Malay doctors, lawyers, engineers feel they have made it on their own
merit.

“It looks like the NEP is not something that can be used to persuade the Malays
to support the Barisan Nasional.

“The Malays are saying ‘you can’t scare us by talking about us losing our
rights, because we are here on our own merit’.”

He described the new confidence among the Malays as good for the Malay psyche.
