Caretaker government: Responsibilities and limits

The Sarawak State Legislative Assembly was dissolved on 3 November 2021 and nomination day was held on 6 December.

The Gabungan Parti Sarawak state government is hence a caretaker government and needs to adhere to the principles of the caretaker government convention.

Since the dissolution, daily media reports have surfaced about various announcements and ground-breaking ceremonies in districts and divisions across Sarawak by the chief minister and ministers of the caretaker government and the federal government.

Do these amount to breaches of the caretaker government convention? Why do we need caretaker government guidelines? Follow this Bersih webinar to find out more.

Panel members:

  • Ann Teo, Bersih Sarawak
  • Maha Balakrishnan, parliamentary affairs expert

Moderator: Lhavanya Dharmalingam, programme officer, Bersih
