Bitter Rivals or BFFs? A Look at the UMNO-PAS-Bersatu Partnership

Things were looking rather stable at first, for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and his newly formed Perikatan Nasional government, following the shocking events of Langkah Sheraton, late last year. However, as months passed, tensions started to build in the PN camp, as the coalition primarily composed of once-bitter enemies, UMNO, PAS and Bersatu, started shooting proverbial arrows at each other. 


So, how will things play out, as we continue to build towards the next General Elections? Will Perikatan Nasional remain intact? Or will the three go their separate ways? Political Commentator, James Chai, joins us on the show today to share his insights.
