54,000 Malaysians gave up citizenship since 2010, says Zahid

In the last five years, 54,406 Malaysians have renounced their citizenship, with 1,102 surrendering their passports in January this year alone, Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said. Between 2010 and January this year, 2011 was the year with the highest number of Malaysians renouncing their citizenship (11,080), followed by 2010 (10,644), Zahid said in a written parliamentary reply. The number dropped in 2012 (8,983) and 2013 (6,678). But it climbed again in 2014 (7,843) and 2015 (8,076). "In this matter, the reason for their renouncement was because they chose not to continue being Malaysians and had obtained citizenship in another country." – March 14, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
