CAMERON HIGHLANDS, Jan 10 — The 15 per cent increase in the participation of Malays in the People's Progressive Party (myPPP) over the last five years proved that the party is gradually gaining acceptance.
Its president Tan Sri M Kayveas said currently 20 per cent out of its 600,000 members were Malays.
“We fight for the interest and welfare of the people besides focusing on the Generation Y's quality of life.
“In fact we find that out of about 120,000 participation from the Malay community, 60 per cent comprised Gen Y,” he told Bernama here today.
He was met after launching the MyPPP New Year Ride 2016 at the Cameron Highlands District Council public car park in Tanah Rata.
Meanwhile 48 per cent of myPPP members are currently Indians, another 34 per cent are Chinese and the rest from other races.
According to Kayveas, the rebranding of the party to MyPPP recently is believed to be able to attract more participation from the various races to strengthen the Barisan Nasional (BN) component party. — Bernama
