Anwar Ibrahim is Malaysia’s new Prime Minister, 24 years after he was sacked as deputy by Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Today, Anwar’s Pakatan Harapan coalition is leading the new administration but only as a result of all MPs except those from Perikatan Nasional declaring their support, effectively giving him 148 seats or a two-thirds majority in Parliament.
Maha Balakrishnan, a parliamentary consultant and researcher, talks to BFM about what reforms we can expect and what needs to be prioritised as the Reformasi movement gains new life.
