Gearing up for general election: What reforms do voters want?


As we approach the general election, there are burning questions about whether:

  • our votes will matter?
  • political instability will continue?
  • Malaysia’s democracy will survive?

It is evident that politics will never be the same again, as we move from one-coalition predominance to fluid multi-party competition.

But the transition has not been smooth and has revealed glaring limitations and weaknesses in our system.

There is no magic pill to address this, but there are a series of crucial reforms that will strengthen the system and lead to better governance of Malaysia. This conference discusses these reforms in a series of panel sessions helmed by civil society leaders, politicians, technical experts and legal practitioners.
