A Complicated Political Reality Awaits the Malays
Saat, Norshahril | May 2019
This paper argues that PH should not take the UMNO-PAS cooperation for granted because their success reflects the sentiments of disgruntled Malays across the country. While the government has the mandate to reform institutions, the economy, and tackle corruption, it cannot ignore the politicization of identity, particularly Malay rights and Islam. Politicization of identity can also pit the government against the Malay rulers, a symbolic yet powerful group that can alter the political balance of power in favour of BN.
