Will Sarawak Go To The Polls?

Professor James Chin, Professor of the Asian Studies, University of Tasmania

Will Sarawak Go To The Polls?

Sarawak's State Assembly is set to dissolve in less than a month, with Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg seeking an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to discuss the subject. In tandem with that, there has been growing upset over the government's implementation of MCO3.0, culminating in #KerajaanGagal trending on Twitter over the Raya weekend. We speak to Professor James Chin, Professor of the Asian Studies at the University of Tasmania for a look at both Sarawak and the security of the Perikatan Nasional government.
