Selangor's dilemma

The Sultan of Selangor wants the three parties of Pakatan Rakyat to nominate at least two and at most four people for the post of menteri besar.


A test for democracy

Such a development means that the crisis is not resolved yet. How and when it could be ended remain unknown. The situation is still very confusing.

MRT work site accidents are no more a novelty these days. This time, it's the collapse of a concrete span that claimed three migrant workers' lives.
