Numbers Game & Democracy on Deathbed - What Does it Mean?!

It’s been a wild week in Malaysian politics and that’s saying something. From Law Minister Takiyuddin Hassan’s blunder in Parliament, PN clashing with the Monarch, Parliament being postponed and then postponed again and later barricaded altogether, to more numbers game. All of this taking place against the backdrop of more than 200 daily COVID-19 deaths. So, it’s a mess. But what does any of it mean to us, the common folk? Oh Ei Sun joins us to share his insights.
