Bersih 2.0’s Thomas Fann speaks with Bridget Welsh, an honorary research fellow with the University of Nottingham Malaysia’s Asia Research Institute, on what led to the political coup that led to the formation of the new Perikatan Nasional government led by Muhyiddin Yassin.
They also discuss what happened since – the coronavirus pandemic, the collapses of a string of state governments, the Sabah election and Anwar’s move. What else can we expect and is it possible for political stability and reform to return?
