Following the passing of former law minister Liew Vui Keong, Malaysians are faced with yet another by-election in Batu Sapi, Sabah. But after Covid-19 cases rose dramatically in the wake of the Sabah state election, are we ready for more polls? To find out, BFM speaks to Thomas Fann, chairperson of election watchdog Bersih 2.0, for thoughts on how to hold an election during a pandemic.
