The Johor state elections took place last week, in which Barisan Nasional came out the victor, with a 2/3 majority. The most alarming statistic of the Johor elections, though, is the voter turnout at 54%. So, why did 45% of the adult population in Johor decide not to participate? Qyira Yusri of UNDI18 joins us to discuss the low voter turnout, postal voting, youth participation and more.
