Merdeka 64: Reflections On Malaysian Resilience And Political Reforms

The political turmoil of the past few years have left many feeling cynical about the state of Malaysian democracy. But there are reasons to stay hopeful for the future of the country. On the eve of the 64th National Day, we discuss the narratives that have emerged from the pandemic and political crisis, the rise of the youth vanguard as well as the reforms needed for a better Malaysia.
