Bridget’s Kerusi Panas episode 10: Pulau Betong

This episode looks at hot seats on Penang Island, with a focus on the constituency of Pulau Betong. The area of Balik Pulau will determine whether Perikatan Nasional makes any electoral gains on the island and the Penang government holds onto two-thirds of the seats. It will also shape the scope of ethnic polarization that will impact governance after the elections.
