Ahli Parlimen Tebrau sasaran pertama kempen ‘Pecat atau Kekal’ (Malay/English)

[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih 2.0) telah dihubungi oleh PKR Johor, yang menunjukkan minat untuk menyertai simulasi pilihan raya pecat untuk membuang Ahli Parlimen Tebrau Steven Choong yang mengumumkan keluar daripada PKR untuk menjadi ahli Parlimen bebas dan menyokong kerajaan Perikatan Nasional pimpinan Mahiaddin Yasin.

Proses pilihan raya pecat akan dilaksanakan secara penuh melalui platform e-undi yang selamat yang direka khas oleh rakan teknologi kami, ReGov Technologies. Pengundi dapat menyertai proses ini dengan selamat dan mudah di mana pun mereka berada selagi ada akses internet dan telefon pintar.

Memandangkan pemohon memenuhi kriteria kami untuk memulakan petisyen pilihan raya pecat, Bersih 2.0 akan membuka petisyen kepada mereka untuk mengumpulkan sekurangnya 3% tandatangan pengundi berdaftar seperti dalam daftar pemilih semasa pilihan raya umum 2018 secara atas talian di kawasan parlimen Tebrau.

Sekiranya ambang 3% telah dicapai dan disahkan oleh Bersih 2.0 sebagai pengundi sebenar di kawasan parlimen Tebrau, kami akan menjadi hos kepada forum atas talian di mana pempetisten dan Steven Choong akan diberi peluang untuk menyatakan alasan mengapa beliau perlu dipecat atau dikekalkan.

Sekiranya beliau tidak menerima tawaran ini, kami akan bergerak ke peringkat pilihan raya pecat seterusnya di mana pengundi Tebrau boleh memberi undi ya (untuk memecat MP) atau tidak (untuk mengekalkan beliau). Tempoh pengundian adalah selama 30 hari dan semua pengundi berdaftar di kawasan parlimen Tebrau berhak untuk satu undi setiap seorang.

Setelah tutup pengundian, Bersih 2.0 akan mengumumkan keputusan. Untuk pilihan raya pecat dianggap berjaya dalam simulasi ini, undi ya mesti melebihi undi tidak, dan lebih daripada 10% pengundi berdaftar telah mengambil bahagian dalam simulasi ini. Sebanyak 123,033 pengundi di Tebrau semasa pilihan raya umum 2018, dan Steven Choong memenangi 64,535 undi dengan majoriti sebanyak 37,225 di atas tiket PKR.

Tebrau MP becomes the first target of ‘Sack or Keep’ campaign

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) has been contacted by Johor PKR, indicating its interest in participating in our online simulated recall election to remove the Tebrau MP Steven Choong who announced on 28 February 2021 his departure from PKR to become an independent MP supporting the Perikatan Nasional government of Mahiaddin Yasin.

The simulated recall election process will be fully conducted on our secure e-voting platform that was specially developed by our technology partner, Regov Technologies. Voters will be able to participate safely and conveniently from anywhere they have internet access and a mobile phone.

Since the applicant fulfils our criteria as an initiator for the recall petition, Bersih 2.0 will create a petition for them to collect at least 3% online signatures of registered voters of the Tebrau parliamentary constituency in the electoral roll for the 2018 general election.

Once the threshold of 3% has been reached and verified by Bersih 2.0 as genuine voters of the Tebrau parliamentary constituency, we will offer to host an online forum where the petitioner and Steven Choong will have an opportunity to give reasons why he should be sacked or retained.

If the MP does not take up this offer, we will move to the next stage of the recall vote, where Tebrau voters can vote either yes (to sack the MP) or no (to keep him). The polling period is 30 days, and all registered voters of the Tebrau parliamentary constituency are entitled to one vote.

At the close of the poll, Bersih 2.0 will announce the result. For a recall to be considered successful in this simulation, there must be more yes votes than no votes, and more than 10% of registered voters must have taken part in this exercise. There were 123,033 voters for Tebrau in the 2018 general election, and Steven Choong won 64,535 votes for a majority of 37,225 on a PKR ticket.

We will provide the 3% petition link and announce the start of the petition stage within seven days.

For other constituencies that had their MPs or state assembly members defecting to other parties or coalition or who went independent, political parties or registered organisations in those constituencies can contact us at recall@bersih.org if they want to start a simulated recall election process to sack their elected representatives.
