In 2018 our guest had warned that the Pakatan Harapan coalition should not roll out institutional and policy reforms “too far, too fast” or they would face an ‘authoritarian backlash’. Is this crisis the backlash he warned of?

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
