If we say, x = y
and, x - y = 0 .... Equation 1
At such, 2(x - y) = 0
and, 2x - 2y = 0 ....Equation 2
Since Equation 1 + Equation 2 = 0
Therefore, x-y = 2x - 2y
or, 1(x -y) = 2(x - y)
or, 1 = 2 ?????
“According to the breakdown of shareholders based on the values of shares in the listed companies of the main board and the second board of Bursa as at Dec 31, 2005, bumiputras owned RM78.4bil (worth) of shares or 36.64%,” Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said.
Dr Awang Adek said the total value of shares of Bursa was RM214bil, and non-bumiputras held 46.91% of shares worth RM100.4bil.
“The remaining 16.45% of the shares or RM35.2bil were owned by foreigners,” he added.
So, Bumi = RM78.4 bil (36.64%)
Non-Bumi = RM100.4 bil (46.91%)
Foreigners = RM35.2 bil (16.45%)
Dr Awang Adek also said that based on records from the Companies Commission of Malaysia, Malays controlled 172,568 of the 717,935 registered companies, and owned more than 50.1% of shares in the companies.
According to Bursa Saham record, last year, Malays owned 186 public listed companies out of the 912 companies that were listed on the main board and the second board.
According to Dr Awang Adek, the figures of ownership of values of shares and public-listed companies in Bursa did not represent the equity ownership in the country.
“If you only look at the number of listed companies, you will get a certain conclusion, but the economy is bigger than that,” he said.
Ya? Ya? Ya? So, govt is justifying their figures that Bumi hasn't had 30%? How is it? Oh, they said that the Equity ownership is far more than ownership in PLCs ...that it must also include private limited companies?
That's damn funny and obnoxious, isn't it?
When NEP was first mooted, the structure of the 30% claim was based on equitable ownership in PLCs. Now, after having achieved it, the crave expands...it' so damn flexible ideology and it can mean anything, everything, and nothing at all.
If thats the argument, then just ponder:
What about the proxy ownership? Only mongoloids wouldn't understand that UMNO generals had been using proxies as their front man; and MCA and MIC generals had also proxies... it's the name of the game; it's washing black money to turn it white; it's legal and it's real.
Don't believe me, asked Daim Zainuddin, asked Salleh Sulong about the shares of Tan Sri Yahaya Ahmad who before his demise had a personal worth of Rm2 billion and after his death, his children found out that his 60% stake in DRB-HICOM was in fact a proxy for someone. If possible, do a research on Syed Mokhtar and Nasimuddin too.
The fact remains that the govt had lied on the figures; in fact they should happily proclaim that BN had achieved success and the NEP was a success; that is something to be proud with, and that is something UMNO can proudly claim the efforts. But alas, the oligarchy wants more, the new regime wants more for themselves and their family.
The only failure of the NEP, isn't the 30% Bumi stake; it's the unequal and unfair distribution of wealth; that majority of the Bumis are still in the lower income group; that most of the 36% stake is owned by UMNO generals, not the commoners; that the NEP had only benefited UMNO leaders and made them ultra-rich, that less than 5% of the Malays had actually and factually benefited.
If ever radical actions had to be taken, it is to restructure the NEP and to give the gravies to the Malay commoners, be they UMNO, PAS or KeAdilan. We, the Non-Bumis are extremely happy if BN and UMNO will start the wealth distribution of the 36% and give it to the Malays in the lower and middle income group. We will support the agenda, the agenda to give the wealth to the commoners within the lower and middle income group.
