With MPs having submitted their statutory declarations on their choice of prime minister to the Agong, BFM looks at developments and what happens next.
To explore the issues, BFM speaks with Prof Wong Chin Huat, a political scientist, and Dr Shamsul Amri Baharuddin, director of of the Institute of Ethnic Studies.
First, the discussion looks at the possible ways for the next prime minister to work with MPs across the political aisle. Then, it dives into the latest news that Umno is putting forward Ismail Sabri Yaakob as its candidate and what it might mean. Finally, it revisits an interview about who else is in the running.
