Will Sarawak Go To The Polls?

Will Sarawak Go To The Polls?

Sarawak's State Assembly is set to dissolve in less than a month, with Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg seeking an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to discuss the subject. In tandem with that, there has been growing upset over the government's implementation of MCO3.0, culminating in #KerajaanGagal trending on Twitter over the Raya weekend. We speak to Professor James Chin, Professor of the Asian Studies at the University of Tasmania for a look at both Sarawak and the security of the Perikatan Nasional government.
