Pas has said that it intends to woo non-Muslims, especially voters who might be on the fence, to vote for Muslim candidates.

On the line with BFM are Dr Bridget Welsh, an honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute-Malaysia, and Chandran Nair, founder and chief executive of the Global Institute for Tomorrow (Gift).

First, they look at what Pas’ popularity and status is among non-Muslims, and how this will play out. Then, they get into what it would take for Malaysians to move away from voting according to race?
