Fatigue caused by bickering opposition may impact twin polls

Koh Jun Lin  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Years of bickering among opposition parties have caused political fatigue among voters, according to a researcher, who said this in turn is causing a low turnout at the elections.

Institut Darul Ehsan researcher Hamdan Salleh warned that the trend might continue in the coming Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections, and even in the next general election.

“There will be political fatigue, and this will be reflected in the two by-elections if this continues,” Hamdan told a forum organised by the institute in Kuala Lumpur last night.
