Penang - Calm, Despite The Storm?

Penang, largely thought of as a safe state for the Pakatan Harapan government, did not have it easy heading into this state election, with infighting among party members dominating the headlines. How did this, as well as other issues, including the Penang South Island Reclamation Project affect the party? Anil Netto, Aliran President and Member of the Steering Committee of the Penang Forum, and Francis Hutchinson, Senior Fellow of the Regional Economic Studies Programme and Coordinator of the Malaysian Studies Programme at ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute join us to provide context to the various narratives.
