"I love Malays and I love Malaysia," says Gerakan central committee member Dr Asharuddin Ahmad. "But this country cannot survive without non-Malays. We are all Malaysians. The future of Malaysia lies with multiracial parties," he tells The Nut Graph.
Future of Malaysia lies with multiracial parties, says Asharuddin Interestingly, Asharuddin is a former Umno member. He joined Umno in 1988, but left to join Gerakan 10 years later. He says he has been branded a traitor to Malay Malaysians, but asserts that joining Gerakan does not make him "any less Malay or more Malay".
"Umno's struggle is not wrong, but I prefer Gerakan's multiracial approach," Asharuddin says.
But Asharuddin is not alone.
Asharuddin and Nik Sapeia are undoubtedly minorities among the BN's multiracial component parties.

Asharuddin Creates History In Gerakan By Going For VP Post
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 4 (Bernama) -- For the first time since the inception of Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia in 1968, a Malay candidate has been nominated to contest the vice-president's post at the party polls on Oct 11.
Dr Asharuddin Ahmad, 49, Gerakan Kuala Selangor division secretary, became the first Malay candidate to contest such a high post in the Chinese-dominated party, after Gerakan founder and first party president Dr Syed Husin Al-Alatas.
Speaking to reporters after the close of nominations at the party headquarters Saturday, Asharuddin said he was confident of winning the race based on grassroot support.
"Maybe the grassroots want me to persuade more non-Chinese members, especially the Malays, to join Gerakan as their preferred choice of political party," said the marketing management Ph.D holder.
Asharuddin, who joined Gerakan in 1998, said he wanted to champion the cause for all Malaysians rather than for a single race like what other race-based political parties did.
"I do not support a party that is based on one race.I want to contribute to bangsa Malaysia and not to one race only," he said.
Ten candidates, including Asharuddin, filed their nominations.
