Going through the political turmoil of a new prime minister and a new cabinet, one question remains: When will Parliament reopen and will it be suspended again using the Covid pandemic as a justification?
How can Parliament still function effectively during a pandemic? As the rest of the world goes hybrid or digital, should Malaysia’s Parliament adapt to the new challenge?
In this Bersih 2.0 forum, three speakers discuss how to make this possible and how we can adapt the lessons learned from our UK counterpart to ours.
