The Election Commission has announced that auto registration of citizens above the age of 18 to vote will be delayed until after September 2022, decreasing their chances of participating in the next general election.
BFM explores how this call came to be and the consequences it might have on our next elections. On the line are Qyira Yusri, co-founder of Undi18; Aira Azhari, manager of the Democracy and Governance Unit; and Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, co-founder and president of Muda.
