via The Malaysian Insight, 18 November 2021: Election promises (they didn’t win).
GERAKAN has promised to submit an official nomination to Unesco for the Baba Nyonya and Kristang (Portuguese-Malay ancestry) cultural heritage to be accorded the intangible cultural heritage status if Perikatan Nasional (PN) is given the mandate to govern the state administration.
Its president Dominic Lau said both cultures were significant to Malacca and needed to be protected, adding that their nomination was a systematic way of preserving the culture and tradition that would also benefit the tourism sector.
