PETALING JAYA: Former foreign correspondent Romen Bose, who became Najib Razak’s political communications consultant, has written an insider’s account of the fall of the Barisan Nasional government – but says “I didn’t really want to write this book”.

Speaking to FMT from his home in London, he said: “After having seen what has transpired over the last two or three years, I felt it was important to document what had actually transpired so that people can learn the mistakes that were made.

“Malaysia has a very strong, positive future ahead of it, but people need to learn from the past so they can move forward and we can see greater cooperation between the races and the public at large. We can resolve our issues and move forward.”

In his book, ‘Final Reckoning: An Insider’s View of the Fall of Malaysia’s Barisan Nasional Government’, Bose writes of how and where Umno, Barisan Nasional and Najib’s inner circle failed in the lead up to the historic 2018 general election, in which the ruling coalition lost power after six decades.

Bose joined Najib’s inner circle in 2012 as an adviser to the then prime minister.
