DAP: The Curious Case of the Strongest & Weakest Party

The Democratic Action Party (DAP) is currently the single party with the most Parliamentary seats -- 42. Despite having the strongest numbers, the party feels almost sidelined when it comes to political maneuverings, particularly when it comes to matters of a PM candidate. And what about race-based politics? DAP has made it clear that they’re not a race-based party/Chinese-based party, but are they forced to play the game nonetheless? In this episode, we’re joined by Howard Lee, DAP Youth Chief, to discuss the curious case of the DAP.
