Talk: The Road to Malaysia’s General Election: Economy, Politics, and Scandals

13 Oct Talk: The Road to Malaysia’s General Election: Economy, Politics, and Scandals

Geopolitical Volatility and Climate Change: Implications for Energy and Innovation in ASEAN and Asia

Speculation is rife that Malaysia may hold its 15th General Election early, potentially by the end of 2022. Last year, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaacob’s government and Pakatan Harapan agreed that parliament would not be dissolved before July 2022. That deadline has since passed, and now calls are mounting for elections to be held soon. Malaysia’s economy has performed stronger-than-expected in 2022 despite global inflation, and many analysts think the government might want to hold the GE while things are looking good. But will Malaysia’s recovery remain on track? How will the political landscape shape up on the road to GE15?


  • How likely is it that Malaysia’s GE will be held this year?
  • What issues will influence the election, such as current economic performance, 1MDB, and new corruption concerns over maritime defence spending?
  • Will Malaysia’s economy remain strong?
  • Will positive factors like domestic demand be able to offset global inflationary pressures?
