02 Dec Webinar: Post GE15 Analysis – Implications for Malaysian Politics
This webinar held almost 2 weeks after Malaysia’s 15th General Election which saw none of the political coalitions achieving a simple majority to form the government, leading to several days of uncertainty. Pakatan Harapan (PH), Barisan Nasional (BN), the Sarawak Alliance Party (GPS), and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) formed a unity government with Anwar Ibrahim as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister. GE15 also saw the rise of Perikatan Nasional (PN) which won the second biggest share of seats – 73, while PH secured 81 out of 222. PN was able to form a state government in Perlis, while Perak and Pahang saw PH and BN teaming up.
Questions linger on how the new government under Anwar’s leadership will perform and what direction he and his new partners will steer the country. The outcome of the election showed a change in voter sentiment presents significant implications for Malaysian politics which cannot be ignored.
This webinar organised by KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific features some of the country’s best political analysts who will give their take on elections and predictions on what is to come.
