Malaysia political dysfunction persists, more middle income mediocrity ahead

  • PM Muhyiddin's resignation is merely the latest episode of the political flux since Mahathir's resignation in Feb 2020

  • Stable new political blocs have not emerged after split and electoral defeat of the Barisan Nasional coalition in 2018

  • An early election, prevented by Covid anyway, would not fix politics and there is no economic crisis to prompt unity
