Working-class people are underrepresented in Malaysian politics.

Through a copy of the document shared by an individual on Twitter, Adam Adli, who is running under the Pakatan Harapan (PH) ticket for the Hang Tuah Jaya Parliament, has only RM1,769.72 (CIMB) and RM8.73 (RHB) in cash.

Adam Adli also owns a Perodua Kelisa with a current market value of RM13,000 and a debt of RM9,655.16, owing to Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Negara (PTPTN).

At the same time, he declared a monthly income of just RM3,000.

He is married and has two children, with a monthly commitment of RM2,440, including residential rental expenses, utility bills, childcare fees, life insurance and a Netflix subscription.

Apart from Adam Adli, Bawani KS, 36, a Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) candidate for the Ayer Kuning constituency in Perak, also declared her wealth with a net asset value of RM992.50 as of 1 November.

According to a statutory declaration, Bawani has a monthly income of RM5,000 and total EPF savings of RM12,189.41.

As for cash and savings, she has money amounting to RM17,463 in three banks.

Bawani also revealed that she has a 2019 Perodua Bezza car priced at RM29,000 and an Oppo Reno 5 Pro phone priced at RM2,100.

Bawani has a car loan debt of RM27,320 and a PTPTN debt of RM20,250.

Meanwhile, Fathin Amelina Fazlie, 28, a young PKR candidate contesting in the Arau parliamentary seat, also declared her wealth with a net asset value of RM15,864 as of 1 November.

According to documents uploaded to Twitter, she only has RM3,127 in bank savings and RM2,009.33 in ASNB.

She has a Perodua Bezza with a current market value of RM35,971, a necklace (RM6,000) and a bracelet (RM3,000).

She also has a PTPTN debt of RM30,000 and a vehicle loan debt of RM35,971.

Hopefully, working-class people will perform better than others when they hold office.

Walking The Talk

The trio’s wealth, or the lack of it, is a stark exception to a longstanding rule in Malaysian politics.

Meanwhile, rival candidates had been under increasing pressure to reveal their net worth.

PAS said it does not intend to declare assets because it is worried about many negative effects.

PAS added that only communists and socialists would declare assets.

The Islamist party also claimed it would be embarrassing as most of its PAS leaders have no assets.
