Is A Hung Parliament Necessary A Bad Thing?

Is A Hung Parliament Necessary A Bad Thing?

Since 1959, Malaysia has seen 14 single coalition simple majority governments until the fateful GE15 that resulted in a hung parliament for the first time in our history. And after what seemed like a very long 5 days from the time we voted, the political uncertainty ended with the country’s five major parties, PH, BN, GPS, GRS and Warisan agreed to a coalition government. But is a hung parliament negative for a democracy and should there be a relook at our electoral system? For some answers we speak to Dr Wong Chin Huat, Political Scientist, Sunway University.
