As the country trudges through a period of political transition, having an experienced hand may not be a bad thing, says James Chin.Itís not even the end of January and the year is looking to be a messy one for politics in Malaysia. In early January, right-wing politician - Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (Putra) vice-president Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz- wrote a letter to a public school in Puchong demanding they take down Chinese New Year (CNY) decorations because these were "unconstitutional" as they were an attempt to propagate a non-Islam religion to students.
