Prior to his resignation, Mahiaddin Yasin and the Perikatan Nasional cabinet openly offered numerous reforms in exchange for support from other MPs. These included setting a two-term limit for the prime minister, an anti-party hopping law and lowering the voting age.
The offer was rejected, but as we move forward as a nation, how can we keep the reform agenda alive? What are the key issues that the next government must prioritise for the benefit of all Malaysians? BFM discusses this and more with Firdaus Husni, chief human rights strategist at the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights.
