Monday’s historic one-day Parliament sitting opened with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong warning lawmakers against throwing the country into political turmoil once again, particularly as the people are still faced with the Covid-19 pandemic. In the wake of the sitting, BFM speaks to Dr Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham Asia’s Research Institute and longtime commentator on Malaysian politics, for her take on the sitting and what it says about the state of coalition politics in Malaysia.

Produced by Sim Wie Boon

Presented by Lyn Mak and Wong Shou Ning
