NEM = NEP 2.0?

For Malaysians, today marks a very special day, for our 6th and current Prime Minister, Dato' Sri Mohd. Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, will be announcing the NEM (New Economic Model), which is designed to replace the NEP (New Economic Policy), which has been criticised for being unfair to the other minority races in Malaysia via its affirmative action that was put into place by his father, Tun Abdul Razak bin Hussein Al-Haj, the 2nd PM, which was also responsible in setting up Barisan Nasional, the current leading Government party. While we wait for the news of the new NEM, here's what Al Jazeera (English-language channel version) has to say:

If you're wondering who's the guy who keeps saying "Shit!", he's none other than Ibrahim Ali, the founder and 1st president of Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia, or better known as Perkasa, a Malay supremacist (Ketuanan Melayu) organisation (yes it's surprising in a post-Nazi era, we still have such institutions).
