Muda’s #PauseMalaysia: Is a Political Ceasefire What Malaysians Need Right Now?
Dr Bridget Welsh, Honorary Research Associate, University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute
Yesterday, Syed Saddiq’s brand new political party, Muda, launched #PauseMalaysia, a campaign urging politicians to ceasefire and focus on the people. However, the reaction towards the campaign was divisive, with many saying that now is the time to fight back, not pause. We discuss the messaging of the campaign, and the pros and cons of a political ceasefire.
