What if Malaysia… Has a Non-Malay Prime Minister #8

Article 43 of the Federal Constitution does not indicate that the Prime Minister of Malaysia has to be of a particular race (or gender). Why then is there a misconception that only a Malay can head the government of Malaysia? On the 8th and final episode of What if Malaysia, historian Dr Dayana and  anthropologist Kamal Solhaimi, both from University Malaya, join us to explore what Malaysia could look like with a non-Malay Prime Minister and if the country is ready for one.
