What my news perception that the government is better at border protection than the live apart of this perception that they all been economic manages in the body that the labor banner at education and health and some of the women's issues and the coalition. So, you know, these perceptions of their and if circumstances change to allow them to be elevated as issues then are thinking becomes anything to scare campaigns accidents of history. And then political volatility over recent times paid a hotch we've had Trump Br exists just Indorama dune and use eland, Dr Mahathir in Malaysia we've been on top of all these issues why the polls he apparently more reliable compared with abroad or are. They will they they are and strategy hasn't had any of the big surprises that the polling particularly in the US and the UK have set those countries up for and the cool reason. Is very simple one. And that is that in a strategy. We have compulsory voting. So that when pollsters sample what people are intending to do with their votes. What they're thinking the ninety five percent of the people that the appalling provided their adult sand enrolled again vote so that takes a huge element of the uncertainty out of it. Whereas in the US and UK with voting is voluntary. The first thing you actually, actually testing to propositions, I how likely are you to vote, and then who you gonna vote for and that has a whole extra layer all unpredictability because people say, yeah, I'm gonna vote, but that's easy to say. And as we know turn out in the US in particular, you guys not great either. But US in particular, if you get half the people turning out for a presidential vote. It's it's pretty good. So they'd be asking an inherently different and more difficult thing to predict whereas here, it's a. A lot easier. The second big factor. I'd say is that the rise of popular store alternative parties in strata? Although there have been plenty of attempts has never never really broken through. But you know, even so even with all of that, Tom and volley talking about polls. And there's this tremendous as you said very outed is tremendous confidence and certainty now the government's finished the hype list, it's all ever seek of them. And Labor's gonna win people forget gonna take two or three percentage points shift and suddenly the government's hit.

"The people who've died in solic- have have died of bad building and Badra Galatian. Haven't I think that this this? Yeah. So I mean, there was an earthquake yesterday or the day before in in in eastern Java and several people died in that quake and it wasn't a, you know, earthquakes happening pretty regularly in Indonesia, and it's bad building. If there was a similar earthquake in Japan, you'd get a lot less people dying in Japan than you would in Indonesia. What we've got here is the added problem of the of the Sunni and. What I'm what I'm understanding about this is there is a particular circumstance of this is a low line plane where the city is built and just the job raphia of where the end. The city sits that the. Resolve channel really acted as a fund acted as a funnel. And and I mean some of the semi indie sort of alarms, one working sort of advocacy and also within the city. It seems, but I'm and it's very unfortunate circumstance here, you know the country on the ring of far gets these underwater earthquakes in the same way that the anomaly that hit Japan, a few years got quite a few people died that as well. And I guess it's just what's inevitably going to be difficult is you know, when you look at the pictures, I mean, the city is just absolutely decimated. And in the same way, when this happening Banda Chet much worse. Well, over ten years ago, it takes it takes absolutely years to recover. You've had population lists. You've had family loss, and this isn't just buildings fallen down. This is this is huge expanses of of the city simply wiped out and. Yeah, I'm an and this begins to fade obviously from from the big news. I mean, it's still in the big news stories around the world, but I it begins to fade, but this is this is this going to loss for for probably decades to get his area back back up and running indeed. So let's move on now to the Mullaly mail and a look at the ongoing travels of Malaysia's. Apparently inextinguishable prime minister Dr Mahathir Muhamad who is several hundred years old. It is three thousand three, but here he is looking. At least three decades younger than that, to be honest shaking, hands with his Indonesian counterpart, joker dodo. The leaders gathering in Bali, both wearing absolutely splendid shirts, but Malaysian palm oil. Now, sustainable says Muhammed. Yes, I'm not convinced. Say, again, you know this, this guy's a speech that he gave at the United Nations. A couple of weeks ago. I'm one of the things he did was he was critical of of western countries and western consumers who have been boycotting palm oil because they don't understand all of the benefits that is bought to Malaysia and so on so forth. What he's saying here is that yes, they did cut down lots of forest, but they're not doing that anymore and palm oil. Now, for that reason is is sustainable in a way that it didn't use to be in that they sort of leading the world in in in sort of making sure that palm oil is is, is I mean his saying sustainable. I'm not sure that it means that is stable, but it's a massive industry from Malaysia, they've, they've cut down a great deal there for us than them. For example, the UK has. So there's through apparently got forty, seven percent of their forest left. I think if he announced he was a regular consumer personally palm oil, it would do wonders. For its sales. We should move along finally to to tempo. This is a story from Indonesia reporting, a certain amount of perplexes us on the part of the president Joko Widodo known to his friends to carry. He doesn't really understand that I need why only three Indonesian state universities are in the list of the world's top five hundred universities. This has this is a I. It's an extension of what's been a recurring theme of his his entire sent to the presidency that Indonesia should be doing better. Generally, it is a huge country it as a serious country with a, you know, a large population, incredible natural resources..

"It's so much exactly one hundred days since Malays election, which saw it change ruling parties for the first time since independence extends ago, it's new Prime Minister. Mahathir Mohamad is an old one in both senses of the word last month. He turned ninety three and he was prime minister with the former ruling party for over twenty years until two thousand and three joining on the phone to assess how he's getting on second time round is Miranda Johnson, the economists southeast Asia correspondent. Hello, Miranda. Hi, Simon, I suppose one of the things that bought Dr Hattie to power were the allegations of corruption against his predecessor and his promises to bring him to book if he did come to power what has been doing about that in his first one hundred days. So that was certainly one of the priorities when they came into power. The scandal at the one in db states, investment wing saw. Point, five billion US dollars disappear wall Mr. James administration ran the show and also to bigwigs including Mr. Naji himself with cleared of wrongdoing under the old regime. But now math is being looked at again, and we've seen in recent weeks that Najib Razak has been charged with graft, abusive power and money laundering. So things are moving as quickly as they can be in an investigation which involves billions of dollars in shell companies and other Bank accounts around the world with this is certainly one of Dr Mahathir tears priorities on the campaign trail. He lamented cut, talk Crecy and we'll sorts of corruption throughout Malaysia. I suppose to Mahatir even in his previous tenure has always governors head of a coalition. But this time it's very different, isn't it before he was very much both of his own party which was very much. Part of the coalition. This time he's head of a much smaller party. How is that working out? It's difficult because exactly, as you say, he's used to being kind of El supremo and this time around his own party in the coalition is actually the smallest player certainly out of the kind of top four parties. And so while he is a figure head was very important in attracting support in the run-up to the election and in particular attracting support of the malay- community which makes up most of Malaysia's population. He has to this time around tape on board, the viewpoints of of the parties such as the DA p which has attracted traditionally ethnic Chinese voters, Malaysia. You also have to take into account the views of PK. Aw, which claims to be a multiracial party and is headed by Ebrahim. Who used to also be in on? No. The ruling party previously with Dr Mahathir here and with Najib Razak and was in fact jailed by both of them on spurious soda. Me charges because Sova Measor a crime in Malaysia. So the difficulties of the coalition required to my heritage to negotiate that relationship with an war and also to negotiate the relationship with the other parties. He's talked dog. He's prime minister for now, but the expectation is that he will hand over to Amar Ibrahim within the next couple of years. But he does have other Ponte's to balance now and have used to consider this briefly to to foreign policy. I see he's off to China soon. Might that be quite a sticky visit because he, he's government, has cancelled some Chinese investor projects, isn't it? Yes. So one of the things that the pack down Harapan coalition promised to do. For entered government long with looking into the one MDP scandal and various other policies. One of the things that promised to do was to reassess some of the maker projects and the billions of ringgit was going to be spent on them so that his lead to the containment of a high speed rail project with Singapore that seems to have annoyed the Singaporeans. And as you mention the decision note to build pipelines with the help of the Chinese, there's been some concern that money linked with those pipelines was also connected to the one MDP scandal. So that explains part of it. So very much Dr Matteo when he's in China next week will probably be on a charm offensive because Chinese money has poured into Malaysian relief in recent years. It's an important relationship. Remember. Thank you very much. Thank you. Simon Johnson are south East Asia correspondent. You're listening to the week ahead from the economist.

"The north koreans that china's view on things can be trusted he ruled malaysia for many years but could the ninety two year old former prime minister mahattaya hammered out to secure another term and office or voting is underway in the general election with the governing coalition led by the prime minister naji razzaq facing its toughest challenge in decades outside a polling station this voter was optimistic my hope is peaceful and all nations will exercise their constitutional and come out and jonathan head who's in kuala lumpur told us more about the fierce rivalry between the two former allies dr mahathir mohamed is the great elder statesman of malaysia he seemed very much as they creator of a modern malaysia he was prime minister for twenty two years has come out of retirement at the age of ninety two it's staggering to watch him because he is remarkably healthy for that age abandoned his party and turned on prime minister najib razak the man he helped put into his job nine years ago to lead the opposition replete with ironies because he's now finds himself in alliance and opposition with anwar ibrahim another former protege who he turned on the late nineteen ninety s and whom he put in prison they were the bitterest rivals but then now together in this oughta lions in desperate attempts to break the six decades long monopoly on power they say because i've talked to my accuses prime minister not cheap of record corruption of extraordinary cronyism soak increasing grip on power has to be broken it's been a very very intense campaign lots of personal attacks by by both sides prime minister najib has fired back this is the opposition is an alliance of convenience that would crack up in power and that is untested and unreliable so it's been very very strong we're still very unclear how it's gonna turn out at the end of the day so briefly is there an appetite for political change in malaysia and is this going to be a free and fair election there is an appetite for change in many areas particularly urban areas where most malaysians now live but the way in which.

"Prime minister najib razak has been visible in this campaign but less so than last time tarnished by one md be he also lacks dr maha tears wit and stage presence but he has other assets you him us government largess for example this low cost housing estate promising to increase the minimum wage and funds for better maintenance young he also wants the audience that dr mahathir is being used he says chinese dominated opposition movement to divide the ethnic malay majority this is a highly sensitive issue in multiracial malaysia the younger generation of malaysian voters yearn to end the six decades of unbroken rule by one party bus they now find themselves led by an elderly man who shapes the political system that they seek to change this is truly a strange election that was our correspondent jonathan head reporting from malaysia now they don't meet for years and then twice face to face in just six weeks the relationship between the north korean leader kim jong un and president sheet of china is blossoming they met in the northern city of dalian and were pictured walking along the seafront together their encounter of course follows mr kim's historic meeting with the south korean leader last month and comes ahead of his planned summit with donald trump at which north korea's nuclear program will be the key issue let's speak to christopher johnson who holds the freemen charon china studies at the center for strategic and international studies in washington welcome to the program i'm so what are we to make of of this renewed closeness between these two allies well i think the image of closeness belies the tensions actually between the two allies let's call it and an effort by china to try to regain its position of centrality in these discussions it's very clear sense the moment that the north korean leader kim joe moon offered his willingness to meet directly with president trump china's been somewhat caught out by that and now feels that events are sort of galloping ahead and it's also very telling that despite rumors that president she might go to pyongyang and reciprocal visit for what kim had done earlier it's interesting.
