Should Malaysia Leave The Commonwealth?

Former Deputy Health Minister Dr Lee Boon Chye wrote a Facebook post calling for the re-evaluation of Malaysia's role in the Commonwealth following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. We unpack some of the points that were made, and take a deeper look at what it means to be a member of the Commonwealth, as we continue to reckon with our legacy as a British colony.
