How Do We Make Policy Debates More Rakyat-Focused?

They cited several examples, including EPF withdrawals and the ceiling price on chicken. First, we get into how the lack of meaningful debate affects the rakyat. Then, we speak to an MP about the preparation that goes into a productive policy debate.
