Why Did the Melaka State Assembly Collapse? What Next?

The Melaka state legislative assembly was dissolved on Tuesday (Oct 5) following the collapse of the state administration, paving the way for snap elections, to be held in a couple of months time. This was the second time the Melaka state assembly collapsed in two years.

First up, we speak with Iskandar Fareez of REFSA about the politicking side of things. Following that, Thomas Fann of Bersih 2.0 joins us to discuss lessons we can learn from the infamous Sabah state snap elections 2020 so that we don’t see another massive spike again.
