There is no explicit provision within the Federal Constitution which addresses the issue of whom the King should appoint as prime minister, should there be a hung Parliament. What convention then governs a hung Parliament situation that Malaysia is currently facing? On a state level, we've seen a unity government being formed in Perak, with Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional coming together to form the new state government. Will we see a unity government at the Federal level, and what role does the Yang di-Pertuan Agong play in determining these sorts of solutions to the many post GE15 political issues? We discuss this and more with Kee Hui Yee, a lawyer with Kanesalingam and Co.
