Reforms beyond Parliament for representative politics

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

In the run-up to Malaysia Day this year, we saw headlines regarding a push for Sabah and Sarawak to be given 35% representation in the House of Representatives.

The special council on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 endorsed this proposal recently, paving the way for the East Malaysian states to gain up to 78 seats in the lower house.

Will this ensure greater political representation for East Malaysia in our parliamentary democracy? Political scientist Dr Wong Chin Huat weighs in.
