MIUP attempts satire

I guess word of the month is satire and MIUP is not about to give it a skip 🙂

On a serious note, if they are serious, should try to seek associate membership in UMNO. Might have to sacrifice something, but hey, if its worth it, why not?

The Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) hopes its application to become one of the component parties in Barisan Nasional will be approved.

MIUP president Datuk S. Nallakaruppan said it was the desire of any political party that supports Barisan’s aspiration to be officially accepted into the coalition.

He felt there was hope that MIUP’s application would be considered following the admission of the Malaysian Indian Muslim Congress (Kimma) as an associate member of Umno recently.

“The decision reflects Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanting to see more friends who are not Umno members, support Barisan,” he said in a statement.

Najib, who is also Umno president, last Friday announced the party’s supreme council had decided to accept Kimma’s membership application.

Following this, Kimma has observer status at Umno’s general assemblies and division meetings but cannot be involved in the party’s internal matters.

MIUP had applied for direct membership last year and was still awaiting a decision.
