Electoral watchdog Bersih has been calling for constituency development funds to be given equally to all MPs, irrespective of their support for or against the government of the day.
The urgency of this issue has returned to the forefront after four opposition MPs declared their support for the “Madani” (Civil) government, citing the need for funding allocations for their respective constituencies.
BFM talks to Bersih executive director Ooi Kok Hin about the challenges in institutionalising a law on constituency development funds.
