2016 - Political Game Changers
Zurairi AR, Assistant News Editor, Malay Mail Online
Today we discuss the major themes in politics for the Federation. We look at the politicisation of religion in the push for amendments to the Shariah Court Act and the broken consensus on the unilateral conversion of minors to Islam. We ask if the real story behind it is the new ties between UMNO and PAS, and which got the better deal. We also look at the rise of regional or state-based agendas with a special focus on Sarawak. And finally, we ask what might be game changers in 2017.
