Malay politics: Parlous condition, continuing problems

The present is an unsettled conjuncture: the old order is passing while Pakatan Harapan’s experimental regime has been subverted. Yet Malay politics is unable to reform or tackle current issues authoritatively. Instead, it has turned inwards and precipitated a disorder of the political system, Khoo Boo Teik writes in this analysis published by Iseas Publishing.

It is evil and I do not deny it – the main takeaway[for me] from Dr Khoo’s analysis is that despite Muhyiddin’s best efforts to project vitality, the perception is that he is in ill-health.
For a non-Malay, given that Malay parlous politics and continuing problems as analysed by Dr Khoo, has gifted us this perikatan nasional govt. and its racist policies, I shudder to ponder what a united Malay political framework will come out with.
