Can Umno reform from within? BFM speaks to Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute, on the push for reform in Umno, how much traction there is for young leaders to rise within the party, and why reformists don’t spin off to form their own party.
BFM also gets her thoughts on the emergency declaration in Batu Sapi.
