The first appointment of the new government is Idrus Harun, former solicitor general and Federal Court judge, who will now serve as the country’s new attorney general for two years. For more insight, Wong Shou Ning and Lyn Mak of BFM speak to Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, constitutional lawyer, about the role of the attorney general, issues which might arise between the attorney general and his brother, Electoral Commission chairman Azhar Azizan Harun, and Najib Razak’s comments that he may now receive a ‘fair trial’.
