Cyber-networks, physical coalitions and missing links : imagining and realizing dissent in Malaysia 1998-2008
From September 1998 to March 2008, dissident cyber-networks in Malaysia developed connections with physical coalitions that contributed to the Oppositionâ€™s historic gains in the 12th General Election of March 2008. To succeed in entrenching a â€˜two-coalition systemâ€™, however, the component parties of the Opposition coalition (Pakatan Rakyat) must establish its â€˜missing linksâ€™, namely, extensive and deep organizational networks in society that would permit the coalition to move from imagining and realizing dissent to institutionalizing it meaningfully.
