Redelineation of electoral boundaries has been due since 2012 and thus highly likely to be held any time soon.
The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH 2.0) is holding a media conference on 9 October 2014 (Thursday) to urge the Election Commission to reveal details of the upcoming redelineation, in particular the possibility of parliamentary and state seat increases. We are also asking all political parties to state their positions on this matter.
Any increase in the total number of seats in current conditions must be justified as it will prove detrimental to the fairness of an already problematic electoral system in addition to having other ramifications, not least economic.
The details of the media conference:
Date: 9 October 2014 (Thursday)
Venue: A-2-10, 8 Avenue, Jln Sungai Jernih 8/1, Seksyen 8, 46050, Petaling Jaya (Pusat KOMAS office).
Tel: 019-438 0428
We would appreciate your coverage on this matter to hold all those in power accountable to the people.
