In a joint statement, think tanks IDEAS and CME raised concerns over the lack of substantive policy debates, especially when it comes to economic policies. They cited several examples, including EPF withdrawals and the ceiling price on chicken. First, we get into how the lack of meaningful debate affects the rakyat.
