The East is Green #5 - Political Party Rivalries

The East is Green is a mini-series where we bring you stories from the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia (also known as the Malay Heartland) in hopes of painting a more nuanced picture of its people, culture and politics. 

Politics in the east coast is a lot more dynamic than people often give them credit for and in this episode, we discuss the rivalries between the political parties that dominate the Malay heartland and the new parties that are vying to break through. 

We hear from: 

Wan Ahmad Fahysal, Perikatan Nasional MP for Machang

Ng Phei Jin, Chief, MCA Women’s Wing (Terengganu)

Wan Mohd Haikal Wan Ghazali, PH candidate for Wakaf Mempelam, Terengganu

Luqman Long, MUDA candidate for Bandar, Terengganu
