It Is Time To Build Malaysia Baru



It raised a few eyebrows when videos of Bersatu Armada’s fundraising dinner especially when long-time Mahathir ally and funding patron, Vincent Tan was seen front and center at the VIP table.

“Preferential” capitalism is nothing new by Bersatu’s standards. It’s led by Mahathir, who practically built the current political funding complex.
When Bersatu Armada chief Syed Saddiq called for a halt to the culture of awarding contracts to personal associates–it was near instantly rebuked by Bersatu vice-president and ironically, Electoral Reform Committee (ERC) Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman.
In his own words, “If we have won, we will have to win (the next general election) by whatever way possible, by hook or by crook,”.  
Syed Saddiq himself seems to have little qualms with mixing business and policy-making as seen with his public support of bringing in corporate entities as solutions to government problems as seen with Gojek and Hausboom. 
But the presence Berjaya Group founder is a timely reminder that Malaysia’s leaders need to start taking the mantle of changing the relationship between business and politics seriously. 
In a report by the Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel said PH not only lacked the urgency to address the culture of political patronage and revealed but also continues to engage in behind-the-scenes collusion with business personalities and wealthy persons, in an apparent move to push profits at all costs. 
Based on this, what we have now under Pakatan is no different to “preferential” capitalism within Malaysia Lama. 
This relationship had a simple arithmetic–politicians reward loyalty to the party with favorable access to business opportunities, be it tenders, privatization, stock offers or key positions in politically linked corporations. 
Conversely, the threat of directing funds away from the party and toward political competitors ensures that the regime follows through with patronage.
Political control in Malaysia Lama since the early 1970s has relied on two groups, each of which receives benefits from the regime in exchange for political support. Favoritism in economic and social policy ensures support from the average joe Malay; favoritism in corporate and financial policy ties businesses to the regime. 
When Malaysians voted for change in May 2018, they did it hoping to break the status quo and the inequity that was formed in years past. 
Let’s be clear. Pakatan Harapan is not immune to patronage, politics is an expensive endeavor. 
But when moneyed interests such as the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) seem to have our leaders on a tight leash–to fight tooth and nail to not only suppress our low wages but to pay for any social benefit scheme, we have a problem here. 
Not to mention the backtracking of on stopping megaprojects that seemed to benefit no one but a few key players as seen in the resumption of the ERCL and MRT extensions.
The Malaysia’s political-business regime, as practiced today, needs to change attention.
There needs to be an end to the unlimited anonymous donations to parties, the lack of transparency in accessing party funds and the influence peddling between big business and our leaders through networks such as government-linked companies that continue to control much of our corporate sector. 
Call it the impossible manifesto (it might as well be at this point) but one promise that is entirely doable in the Pakatan Harapan manifesto is Promise 18: Create a political financing mechanism that has integrity. 
It is time to build Malaysia Baru – and our leaders have to decide if they actually want to be a part of it.
