GE14 - Will The North Remember?

Last night it was announced that Tun Mahathir would be contesting the Langkawi seat in the upcoming general election. Dr. Tapsell talks about the mood on the ground in Kedah to Tun Mahathir and the potential impact the former prime minister has there, as well as the impact of internet growth and smartphone usage on political discourse in rural and semi-rural Malaysia. He also talks about the changing media consumption habits and the rise of individual voter choice as more political parties have entered the fray. 

Presented by: Joyce Goh, Sharaad Kuttan, Tan Chung Han
