How Do Parties Win Elections Without Getting Majority of the Votes?

Here’s how many people believe elections in Malaysia work: You cast your vote on election day. The party/coalition that amasses more than half of the population’s votes wins and forms the government. But what if we told you that this isn’t the case; That a lot of the time, the party that forms the government, is a party that isn’t popular amongst the people. On this episode, we discuss our First-Past-the-Post electoral system and what we can do about it.
