Pas has recently proposed a redrawing of electoral boundaries to allow for more Malay representatives in Parliament.

Can politicians make suggestions for redrawing and on what basis are the lines usually redrawn?

Thomas Fann, chairperson from Bersih 2.0, weighs in on this BFM discussion.

I may be a novice, by-stander in the political manipulations of our country’s democracy.
But I remember well the oft-shouted screams of the deposed PH administration. The electoral map was just redrew before GE14.
The constitution stipulates the minimum duration before any redrawing of the electoral map.
Oops.. I am taking about PAS ? They can do anything….
