In an effort to promote Clean and Fair Election, Tindak Malaysia will be organizing an open forum entitled How Clean will the 13th General Elections be? to be held at the PJ Civic Centre Auditorium, at 8.30pm next Tuesday April 24, 2012.

The invited guests are from the Election Commission, BERSIH 2.0 Steering Committee, academician and political analyst, Dr Ong Kian Ming, and the Election Commission Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof.
The moderator will be Syahredzan Johan, the Chairperson of the Bar Council Constitutional Law Committee.
“We would really look forward to the participation of the Election Commission Chairman to have a meaningful exchange,” Wong wrote in a letter addressed to the Election Commission Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof.
