Achieving political stability with bipartisanship?

Is this what the ‘New Deal’ is all about, we wonder?

Unprecedented levels of cooperation have been promised between the government and the opposition with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.

To explore the government’s aim to ensure political stability, first, BFM looks at the proposed reforms and what impact they will have on our governance. Next, it examines the significance of the MoU and how binding it is. Finally, will the opposition now put forth their long-promised shadow cabinet?

Joining the discussion are Tricia Yeoh, CEO of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs; Thomas Fann, chairperson of Bersih 2.0; and Gayathry Venkiteswaran, assistant professor of media and communications at the University of Nottingham Malaysia.
