Sample text

Singapore and Malaysia are in the first category as parliamentary democracies with limited freedom. Like Burma and Indonesia, Malaysia is a multi-ethnic society, and there was little sense of nationhood before independence. The controlled democratic system has been effective in dealing with racial issues, nation-building and economic development, except for a very brief period between 1969 and 1971 when racial riots broke out. There are a number of explanations for the success of this type of democracy in Malaysia.

Their principles of ideology and political organisations, such as the dictatorship of a single party, the party’s primacy over the state, its strictly hierarchical structure, and the principle of democratic centralism, were basically the product of European intellectuals.

Its astonishing success is largely attributable to the leadership of Lee Kuan Yew and his controlled democracy. His People’s Action Party (PAP) has been the key political institution that ensured political stability and mass support. The PAP has dominated the elections and parliament since the 1968 general elections, in which the party won all seats.
