Anwar-Najib debate: Healthy democracy or legitimising convict?

Recently, a political debate took place between former Prime Minister Najib Razak and opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim about Sapura Energy Bhd and the economic future of this nation.

But was the debate useful for the masses? Does it promote healthy democracy or did it do more to legitimise Najib, who’s convicted of corruption?

BFM speaks to Dr Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham Malaysia’s Asia Research Institute.
