(The Star) 25 NGOs form Bersih

KUALA LUMPUR: A group of 25 non-governmental organisations has formed the Coalition for Clean and Fair Election (Bersih).
Endorsed by five Opposition political parties, Bersih has drawn up short-term and long-term agendas for the Election Commission.
Bersih said the EC should introduce the use of indelible ink to prevent multiple voting, abolish postal voting except for diplomats and Malaysians staying overseas, and revise the electoral roll.
Malaysian Trades Union Congress president Syed Shahrir Syed Mohamud, who is part of the coalition, said they would go to the grassroots to educate the public about holding clean and fair elections.
