Emergency, democracy and rule of law – because it matters

The general election losers are now ruling the country

An emergency subverting the rule of law weighs down heavily on an already tenuous democracy compromised by party defections to remove a legitimate government.

Where do we go from here? Prolongation of emergency? A new government? Elections? When? The speakers at this webinar, organised by the Sekhar Institute and The Vibes Dot Com, shed some light.

Panel members:

  • Pandikar Amin Mulia, former Dewan Rakyat Speaker
  • Shamsul Iskandar, PKR information chief
  • Howard Lee, DAP Youth chief
  • Tommy Thomas, former attorney general
  • Afdlin Shauki, actor, director, activist
  • Moderator: P Gunasegaram, chief executive, Sekhar Institute.

Move the slider to 1:04:00 for the start of the webinar.
