Malaysia is racist country, which favours the malays in all aspects. Its comparable to the apartheid system in South Africa before. Even worse, as there is laws in constitution clearly discriminating the minorities. Ethnic cleansing is being practiced by they majority in a subtle and organized manner.

"The country is a federal parliamentary republic where despite democratic structures there is no fair chance for the opposition."

Are you kidding? Do you know that the opposition have won in Kelantan for more than 20 years? "No fair chance-the general election is held every 4 years and everybody is free to choose their leader" - okay, so that means that it is us Malaysians that doesn't want the opposition to lead the country coz we believe in our current leader...
