The 12th Malaysian General Election has brought forth various issues ranging from, the alleged marginalization of minorities to rocketing prices and the curtailing of religious freedom. These issues are threatening to undermine the Barisan Nasional’s parliamentary majority. Will this election see a big shift in the non-Malay ground as widely expected?
