Will MUDA Be a Progressive Third Force?

Will MUDA Be a Progressive Third Force?

MUDA has announced that it's going solo and will be contesting against not just Perikatan Nasional, but the Pakatan Harapan-led MADANI government pack, as well. The move has received mixed reactions on social media, with some saying it’s inevitable, some sending well wishes, while others have criticised and even trolled them. 

But what does MUDA going solo tell us about our political landscape today? Is this move good for the people? We speak to Dr Bridget Welsh, Honorary Research Associate, University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute Malaysia (UoNARI-M).
