RESERVED PRESIDENCY IS CONDESCENDING, SHOWS MALAYS ARE "USED ONLY WHEN NEEDED"

Khan Osman Sulaiman talks about the upcoming Presidential Election and highlighted some of its problems. He thinks it is condescending to reserve the election for Malays as it shows that they cannot stand on their own merits. "It places the Malay community as a pawn in a chess game.
