Bersih 4’s new demand: Strengthening parliamentary democracy

0

The Coalition of Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) calls upon Malaysians to reject the abuse of Section124B by joining Bersih 4.

We must stand up for our embattled parliamentary democracy from further assaults from the Executive.

Bersih 4’s demands are now:

  • Clean elections
  • Clean governments
  • Right to dissent
  • Strengthening parliamentary democracy
  • Saving our economy

The first three demands – “clean elections”, “clean governments” and “right to dissent” – are necessary for the fourth and new demand – “strengthening parliamentary democracy” – which is in turn necessary for the fifth demand – “saving our economy”.

Bersih 2.0 calls upon opinion leaders and supporters of Bersih 4 to help spread the understanding that we cannot save our economy without strengthening our democracy.

Steering Committee of Bersih 2.0, which consists of:

Chairperson: Maria Chin Abdullah; Deputy Chairperson: Sarajun Hoda Abdul Hassan; Treasurer: Masjaliza Hamzah; national representatives: Assoc. Prof. Dr Abdul Halim bin Yusof, Farhana binti Abdul Halim, and Fadiah Nadwa Fikri; vice-chairpersons: Jannie Lasimbang (Sabah), Ahmad b Awang Ali (Sarawak), Abd Halim b Wan Ismail (East Peninsula), Thomas Fann (South Peninsula), Simon Lee Ying Wai (Central Peninsula) and Dato’ Dr Toh Kin Woon (North Peninsula).
