Is Racial Representation Important in Government?

There has been a lot of criticism recently about the lack of Tamil ministers in the the Cabinet following the reshuffle. Separately, a remark from Lim Kit Siang on how the Constitution allows for a non-Malay PM has drawn a lot controversy and is currently under investigation. So we talk about whether representation in politics is important, and why Malaysia is still so tied to this notion that only someone from your own community can best represent you.
