"Race card won't work"

Ya, in Ijok, race card won't work.
In Sabah and Sarawak, race card won't work.
In Kelantan and Trengganu, race card won't work (only religious card works)

But elsewhere, race card is the only card UMNO had to continue to exist and thrive. UMNO, MCA and MIC can only survive by playing up racial issues and projecting an absolute image based on race alone.

In Penang, UMNO is playing the race card so as to pressurized the BN government to rotate the chief minister post. UMNO Penang had been eyeing the CM post for decades without success. They had tried to drive a wedge between MCA and Gerakan and had even sub-divided their Malay-dominated seats into smaller fragment so as to built up their control of state representation. The Chinese majority seats have more than 10,000 voters but UMNO controlled state seats have only a few thousand voters.

Bukit Bintang parliamentary seat have more than 100,000 voters. Similarly, Kepong, Cheras, Jinjang, Petaling Jaya and Sungei Way too.

The speech above, wasn't it based on race card?
