Negotiations to form the next government of Malaysia following the general election have not yet yielded results, but there have been surprises and U-turns over the past two days.
Meanwhile the political polarisation at the elite level is also reflected in public and social media discourse, raising concerns about the unity of Malaysian society.
What challenges will the next government need to contend with to rebuild the consensus of Malaysia?
BFM talks to Meredith Weiss, professor of political science from the State University of New York, and Mohd Tajuddin Rasdi, professor of architecture from UCSI, about the latest developments.
