Some months before the last general election, I attended an intimate dialogue organised by a friend who is also a public policy specialist.
The discussion centred around current issues and the consolidation of power by then Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, after the 1MDB fallout and the effects this would have on Barisan Nasional and Umno – especially with the sackings and defections that took place after the Malaysian version of the night of long knives on July 29,2015, and the subsequent sacking of senior Umno leaders in the middle of 2016.
