Unending Political Back And Forth

Budget 2021 was passed with a voice vote after a bloc gambit failed to get the necessary support to proceed. Ben Suffian, Programme Director at Merdeka Center, gives us his views on what might have happened behind the scenes. He also weighs in on the future of Pakatan Harapan and whether this political misstep is repairable in the eyes of their supporters and even party members.
