How much is your constituency allocated?

Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh and Bagan Datuk MP Zahid Hamidi have both raised concerns (albeit for different reasons!) over funds allocated for their constituencies. BFM speaks to Bersih 2.0 chairperson Thomas Fann to understand how this allocation shapes politics and how it can be reformed to create a more meaningful democracy.

The buck stops here – Thomas Fann has told us the Community Development Fund [CDF]is allocated by the Prime Minister.
So, another case of the cakap tak sama bikin routine.
You know, if whoever handles the CDF now really takes care of the constituency, Hannah Yeoh will not be calling out.
In a funding as opaque as the CDF and without accountability, I am sure much of the funds go into pockets of cronies!!
