The first full parliamentary sitting of the Perikatan Nasional government saw several landmark motions tabled – including a motion to replace the Dewan Rakyat Speaker and one of the deputy speakers. BFM speaks to Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute for some insight into the political dynamics informing the sitting, as well as Dhanya Nair, reporter with the BFM News team, for an on-the-ground perspective of what was happening in Parliament house.
