Can the MoU change Malaysian politics?

The tabling of a law to prevent political defections during the first session of Parliament in 2022 was one of the key conditions of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the federal government and Pakatan Harapan.

Now that the tabling of the bill has been postponed, how does this affect the historic but uneasy truce between the two sides of the political divide?

BFM discusses what’s holding up progress on the bill and whether Malaysia is ready for new coalition politics with Subang MP Wong Chen and Prof Wong Chin Huat of the Jeffrey Sachs Centre on Sustainable Development.
