Pakatan Harapan

Green Left's Peter Boyle spoke to Socialist Party of Malaysia deputy chairperson S Arutchelvan (Arul) about the latest political developments since the meltdown of the Pakatan Harapan government.

After a week of political crisis, betrayals and rapidly shifting alliances, former MP and Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM) chairperson Jeyakumar Devaraj shares some reflections with Green Left's Peter Boyle.

Less than two years after being elected, a split-off from the Alliance of Hope has reached out to corrupt former MPs to try to form a new government in a move widely denounced as a “backdoor coup”, writes Peter Boyle.

Twelve men were detained under Malaysia’s Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (SOSMA) on October 11–12, among them two state parliamentarians from the Democratic Action Party (DAP), part of the Pakatan Harapan ruling coalition.
