Non-Malays form 15% of armed forces
There are 17,521 non-Malays in the Armed Forces, making up about 15.25% of the total number of personnel, said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He added that although there was a recent increase in non-Malays joining the Armed Forces, the number was still poor.
He was asked by Liew Chin Tong (DAP –Bukit Bendera) on the number of non-Malays in the force and whether any studies had been conducted to find out why they were not interested.
Ahmad Zahid said publicity activities such as road tours had been conducted at institutions of higher learning and selected schools to promote career opportunities in the forces. He said other promotional activities included advertisements.
