Is there hope for a progressive Malaysia?

In this hybrid talk organised by Aliran, former diplomat M Santhananaban, a regular writer for Aliran, discusses the outlook for Malaysia in light of the state election results, which suggest a polarised nation.

The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

No. But the author may be well versed to first define what he means by “progressive”. If it mean giving all citizens equal rights then no, it is not going to happen in the near or even distant future.
