Warisan Tripped Up By Low Turnout
Dr. Bridget Welsh, Honorary Research Associate, University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute
In a closely contested state election, the opposition coalition of Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) emerged as victor, winning 38 out of 73 seats at stake. Political analyst Dr. Bridget Welsh discusses the factors that tipped the scale to GRS' favor, and the ongoing tussle for the post of Chief Minister. She also warns that the tight results indicate a period of instability for Sabah politics.
