More tests of Malaysian opposition unity are coming

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Significance

This followed a prominent display of placards at the PKR's conference in favour of the imprisoned Anwar Ibrahim becoming prime minister, a position the party has long held.

Impacts

  • The BN-led government will likely support another push by the PAS to pass Islamic criminal punishment reforms in parliament.
  • This would add to pressure on the PH, as Amanah also favours Islamic politics.
  • Ahead of the election, the government will likely prioritise East Malaysian infrastructure projects.
