Bersih 2.0 ready to organise Sabah chief minister candidates’ debate

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) is ready to organise an election debate among the candidates for Sabah chief minister on 19 September 2020 from 7.30pm to 10.00pm in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

The main objective of the debate is to allow all Sabahan voters to listen to the vision, manifesto and programme of the candidates for chief minister from the different political coalitions and parties so that all voters can make an informed decision in determining the future of Sabah.

The chief ministerial candidates will be requested to present their election manifesto, vision and programme for Sabah if they are elected as chief minister and form the state government for the next five years. Important questions related to politics, economic development, education, and social and cultural development in Sabah will be posed to the candidates.

A moderator who is neutral will facilitate the election debate.

We have sent out invitation letters to five candidates who are reportedly aiming to become Sabah chief minister, namely, Warisan president Shafie Apdal, Parti Cinta Sabah president Anifah Aman, Sabah Umno chairman Bung Mokhtar, de facto Usno leader Pandikar Amin Mulia and former Chief Minister Chong Kah Kiat from the Liberal Democratic Party.

The candidates are requested to reply to our invitation by Monday, 14 September 2020. If two out of five candidates agree to join the debate, Bersih 2.0 will proceed with the organising of the debate.

The election debate will be telecast live nationally through mainstream media and social media to enable all Sabahan voters to follow the debate regardless of where they stay in Malaysia.

We believe such an election debate will improve the political culture in Sabah with more policy debates, political dialogues and intellectual exchanges to preserve a more democratic, intellectual and harmonious political environment.

We call on all the candidates for chief minister to join this historic election debate and show their commitment to the Sabahan voters who aspire for more mature and healthy politics in the state.
