Abstract:

This thesis deals with Chinese political power in the Federation of Malaysia since the expulsion of Singapore with its large Chinese pululation from the federation in 1965. In determining the extent of Chinese political power in Malaysia, an examination of two significant areas was essential. First, the racial conflict and violence between the Malays and non-Malays mainly the Chinese were major problems which shook the very foundation of the political, economic and social structures of Malaysia. Second, the results of the last three Malaysian Parliamentary and State Legislative Assembly General Elections were analyzed and interpreted to gain a clearer picture of the Malaysian political scene. Finally, a projection of the future political prospects for Malaysia was offered. Author
