The success of Barisan Nasional’s approach to politics in Malaysia’s plural society is rooted in its principle of moderation, said Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin.

He said the approach worked because the Barisan government listened to the people and tried to meet their rising expectations.

“We have liberalised our political system, getting rid of laws which allow detention without trial and we now allow university students to be involved in politics,” said Khairy at the Umno International Forum held ahead of the party’s general assembly on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the transformation process in Umno should take into account the need for the party to move in tandem with the reality of new politics which now coloured the country’s political landscape.

Najib, who is also Umno president, said the party’s success thus far was not a guarantee for future success.

“To remain relevant, Umno has to be willing to carry out transformation that will reflect it as a party which is capable of assuring the future of the Malays and the country,” he said.
