Malaysia Politics After The Coup

Monday, 21st April 2020

Malaysia saw a change of government barely two years after the 2018 General Election, after a coup launched by components of the then ruling Pakatan Harapan government, resulted in the installation of the Perikatan Nasional government on March 1.

With elder statesman Mahathir Mohamad seemingly sidelined by the events and the installation of one of the most ethnically skewed governments in Malaysia’s history, what does the future of Malaysia politics hold?

Topics covered include:

  • Brief recap of the events leading up to the coup
  • Risk of worsening race relations
  • Potential for disunity in the Perikatan Nasional Government
  • How Malaysia compares to the region
