16 Aug 100 Days Later – An Initial Assessment of Malaysia’s New Government



100 days have elapsed since Pakatan Harapan (PH) defeated the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition during Malaysia’s 14th General Election, and set out to fulfil its electoral promises. But what remains to be done, and how have domestic audiences reacted to their policies? We had a talk on Thursday 15 August with Dr Oh Ei Sun, Senior Advisor on International Affairs at the Asia Strategy and Leadership Institute of Malaysia, and Ms Khor Yu Leng, Research Director (Southeast Asia), Segi-Enam Advisors Pte Ltd and Director, Khor Reports Data and Maps. The session was moderated by Associate Professor Simon Tay, Chairman, Singapore Institute of International Affairs.

A summary of this event is now available on our website. The original event synopsis is below.


Original Event Synopsis:

Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Pakatan Harapan (PH) government has now been in power for close to 100 days. During this time, PH leaders have delivered on some of their campaign promises, including the abolition of GST and reformation of Malaysia’s institutions. However, while Malaysia seems to be moving ahead, there are currently more questions than answers. There is uncertainty surrounding PH’s long term vision for Malaysia, as its leaders seek to strike a balance between reforms and the former Barisan Nasional (BN) status quo.

  • How successful has PH been in fulfilling their campaign promises, and what obstacles have they encountered in the process?
  • What is the outlook for Malaysia’s ties with its neighbours such as Singapore and China?
  • How have the PH government’s policies affected investor confidence in its economy?



Dr. Oh Ei Sun, Senior Advisor for International Affairs, Asia Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI), Malaysia
Ms. Khor Yu-Leng, Research Director, Southeast Asia, Segi-Enam Advisor Pte.
