Chinese highest among Malaysians who gave up citizenship

Listen folks. There were 56,575 Malaysians who gave up their citizenship and emigrated elsewhere between 2010 to 2016. The Chinese are the highest in numbers, constituting 88.14% of those who had emigrated.

Here’s one of my Written Question during the May 2016 session of the Parliament sitting, regarding the number emigrants among Malaysians, break-d0wn by race. The government did not disclose where they had gone to, or for whatever reasons.

QUESTION: Tuan Jeff Ooi Chuan Aun [ Jelutong ] minta MENTERI DALAM NEGERI memberikan statistik terperinci yang terkini mengikut pecahan kaum mengenai rakyat Malaysia yang telah membatalkan kewarganegaraan mereka uituk menjadi warganegara asing secara sukarela.

  • Melayu: 834
