Politics: Young Malay voters ‘turning green’?

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

In recent elections, we’ve seen a trend where young ethnic Malay voters are increasingly gravitating towards conservative political parties. This shift challenges conventional wisdom that younger generations typically support progressive reforms.

What factors are shaping the political behaviours of young Malays today? And what might this trend mean for the future of Malaysia’s political landscape and our multicultural society?

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris speaks to Dr Syaza Shukri, an associate professor of political science at the International Islamic University Malaysia, and Aziff Azuddin, a research associate at Iman Research.
