The Barisan Nasional coalition had a resounding win in the Malacca state election, winning 21 out of 28 seats.

BFM poses these questions to Dr Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute in Malaysia, and Ibrahim Suffian, programme director at the Merdeka Center.
