Muda Has Left The (Madani) Building

Syed Saddiq, President, MUDA

Muda Has Left The (Madani) Building

News broke over the weekend that Muda has exited the Madani government, and that the party's only MP (and Muda president), Syed Saddiq, will now sit in the opposition bloc. This comes after the decision to drop the 47 corruption charges against Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. With Muda now aiming to act as a "third force", this also means the Pakatan-Barisan coalition has lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament. We speak with Syed Saddiq on this decision, and what the future might hold for his party. Then later, Ben Suffian from the Merdeka Centre joins us to discuss the political implications of Muda's exit.
