    BERSIH 2.0: Two Steps Rakyat Can Take to Fight the Fraud


    BERSIH 2.0 has emerged from 28 April stronger and energised as a people's movement. During the BERSIH 3.0: Duduk Bantah rally, we witnessed citizenry at its best claiming their right to clean and fair elections. Combined with the efforts of Malaysians at national and global levels, the turnout for BERSIH 3.0 is possibly the largest in the history of Malaysian civil society movement.

    But the struggle for clean, free and fair elections is not over.

    New evidences of fraud continue to emerge without any concrete action taken to remedy the fraud. Not only has there been total failure to implement the changes recommended by the Parliamentary Select Committee for Electoral Reform (PSC), but there have been attempts to further weaken the electoral process. This is particularly seen through the amendments of the Election Offences Act 1954 hastily passed in Parliament. Fortunately, the amendments have since been withdrawn by the Government.

    There is not a shred of political will in the EC and the government to implement necessary reforms or even to perform the fundamental duty of upholding the integrity of the electoral roll. As the EC and the government has proven that it cannot be trusted to conduct free and fair elections for the 13th General Elections (GE-13), BERSIH 2.0 calls on all Malaysians to help fight the fraud!

    The first and most important step is to “Keluar Mengundi, Lawan Penipuan!” (Come out and vote, fight the fraud). BERSIH 2.0 calls on all registered voters to use your vote as a key tool in mitigating the fraud. We call on the rakyat to rise to the occasion and to deliver the largest voter turnout Malaysia has ever witnessed in the upcoming GE-13.

    The second step that citizens in support of free and fair elections can take is to actively participate in activities that will detect, report and stop any fraud during the election campaign period and on election day. BERSIH 2.0 is working with Tindak Malaysia and Jom Pantau! to organise training for volunteers to play the vital role of election monitors, polling agents, counting agents and postal voting polling agents. We call on all supporters of free and fair elections to actively take action against fraud by taking on important roles of election monitors, polling agents and counting agents.

    Tindak Malaysia has been organising countless Polling Agent, Counting Agent and Barung Agent (PACABA) trainings across the country. Volunteers for PACABAs are important as they play the frontline role of detecting any fraud and ensuring election officers abide by election laws.

    Jom Pantau! is an election monitoring initiative carried out by with the Malaysian Election Observers Network (MEO-Net), Southeast Asian Centre for e-Media (SEACEM), the National Institute for Democracy Electoral Integrity (NIEI). All citizens can take part in monitoring the electoral process and reporting any fraud, abuse or irregular practices which will consequently be made public on www.pru13.info.

    Attached is a list of training workshops organised by Tindak Malaysia and Jom Pantau! that is open to all.

    This is a call to action for all BERSIH 2.0 supporters by BERSIH 2.0. We believe that by multiplying the number of election monitors, polling agents and counting agents, some portion of fraud and abuse can be curbed.

    KENYATAAN AKHBAR


    BERSIH 2.0: RAKYAT AMBIL DUA LANGKAH MELAWAN PENIPUAN



    Sesudah 28 April yang lalu BERSIH 2.0 telah muncul lebih gagah bertenaga untuk menjadi satu gerakan massa yang ampoh. Ketika BERSIH 3.0 DUDUK BANTAH, rakyat seluruh negara melihat dengan mata kepala bagaimana anak semua bangsa telah banguan merampas kembali hak mereka untuk mendapat satu sistem pilihan raya yang adil dan bersih. Bersama-sama warga Malaysia di dalam dan luar negara, jumlah yang turun ke jalan raya di BERSIH 3.0 adalah yang terbesar dalam sejarah perjuangan masyarakat madani.

    Tetapi waspada, perjungan untuk menuntut pilihan raya yang adil dan bersih masih belum selesai.

    Bukti-bukti tentang penipuan baru telah ditemui dan diumumkan tetapi tidak ada langkah yang diambil untuk menghapuskan penipuan ini. Jawatan Kuasa Khas Parlimen Pembaikan Pilihanraya telah gagal seratus peratus. Tidak cukup dengan kegagalan ini , rancangan untuk menipu dalam pilihan raya masih diteruskan. Ini saheh terbukti melalui pindaan Akta Kesalahan Pilihan Raya 1954 yang telah diluluskan dengan tergesa-gesa di Parlimen. Nasib baik rancangan penipuan ini telah dibogelkan dan pindaan ini ditarik kembali.


    Lembaga Suruhan Pilihan Raya dan juga kerajaan tidak ada sedetik niat untuk membaiki dan mereformasi sistem pilihan raya. Jauh sekali untuk memastikan pekara yang paling fudumental - senarai nama pemilih – dibersihkan. Jelas dan saheh bahawa lembaga SPR dan kerajaan tidak boleh dipercayai untuk menjalankan PRU13 yang akan datang ini dengan adil dan bersih. Maka BERSIH 2.0 menyeru - anak semua bangsa - rakyat Malaysia untuk bangun melawan penipuan.


    Langkah pertma yang wajib kita lakukan ialah KELUAR MENGUNDI – LAWAN PENIPUAN. BERSIH 2.0 menyeru semua warga yang berdaftar mengundi akan menggunakan undi mereka sebagai benteng untuk melawan penipuan. Kami menyeru rakyat Malaysia – anak semua bangsa - untuk beramai-ramai bertekad keluar mengundi. Marilah kita keluar beramai-ramai mengundi dengan jumlah yang belum pernah terjadi di Malaysia.



    Langkah kedua yang wajib kita lakukan untuk memastikan PRU13 ini adil dan bersih ialah memerhatikan dengan mata yang tajam jika berlaku penipuan. Laporkan, hebohkan dan lawan penipuan ini. Kita memerhati ketika masa berkempen dan di hari membuang undi. BERSIH 2.0 sedang bekerjasama dengan TINDAK MALAYSIA dan JOM PANTAU! untuk melatih para sukarelawan. Para sukarelawan inilah akan memainkan peranan yang amat penting sebagai Pemantau, Pegawai Pilihan Raya, Pengira Undi dan ajen untuk pengundi pos. Kami menyeru semua penyokong BERSIH untuk sama-sama melawan penipuan dengan menjadi Pemantau, Pengira Undi dan Ajen Pengundi.


    Tindak Malaysia telah menjalankan banyak latihan diseluruh negara untuk melatih Ajen Pengundi, Pengira Undi dan Ajen Barung (PACABA). Sukarelawan untuk PACABA adalah petugas yang paling penting kerana mereka adalah dibarisan hadapan untuk mencium bau penipuan. Juga mereka akan memastikan pegawai pilihan raya tidak terlibat dalam penipuan. Dan memastikan pegawai pilihan raya mengikut peraturan.

    Jom Pantau! ialah badan pemantau yang bekerjasama dengan Malaysian Observers Network (MEO-Net), Southeast Asian Center for e-Media (SEACAM) dan National Institute for Democracy Electoral Integrity (NIEI). Semua warga boleh mengambil bahagian dalam pemantauan pilihan raya. Warga boleh membuat laporan jika ternampak ada penipuan, ada penyalah guna kuasa atau terlihat tindakan dan kerja yang tidak mengikut peraturan. Semua ini boleh diloporan kepada umum di www.pru13.info

    Bersama ini disertakan senarai bengkel yang akan diadakan oleh Tindak Malaysia dan Jom Pantau!. Ianya terbuka untuk semua warga negara.

    Bersih seeks more eyes to watch for vote fraud

    http://bit.ly/JESpz5

    May 16, 2012
    KUALA LUMPUR, May 16 — Bersih 2.0 today launched a fresh campaign against electoral fraud as a follow-up to its April 28 sit-in, this time inviting Malaysians to participate in an “election monitoring initiative” to ensure the 13th general election is free and fair.The election watchdog, disappointed that the crowd it amassed on April 28 had failed to inspire further electoral reforms, said it will conduct training for volunteers to become election monitors in the coming polls.

    “This is a call for action for all Bersih 2.0 supporters by Bersih 2.0. We believe that by multiplying the number of election monitors, polling agents and counting agents, some portion of fraud and abuse can be curbed,” said Bersih 2.0 co-chair Datuk A. Samad Said during the launch of “Jom Pantau!” here.

    “Jom Pantau!”, headed by Popular Communications for Human Rights in Malaysia (Komas), is an election monitoring initiative carried out with the help of the Malaysian Election Observers Network (MEO-Net) and the National Institute for Democracy Electoral Integrity (NIEI). The training will be conducted by Tindak Malaysia.

    The campaign seeks to train at least 400 individuals each week to become polling agents, counting agents and “barung” agents to make up the 180,000 agents required for the election.
    A website (www.pru13.info) has also been set up to allow Malaysians to report any instances of electoral fraud through email, tweets, phone calls, text messages or by filling in a complaint form.

    Defining Fraud to Increase Electoral Integrity
    Election Management, Rule of Law

    Election officials follow procedures to secure a ballot box before voting begins.



    Abstract
    Several definitions and terms dealing with electoral fraud have been proposed by scholars in recent years. Definitions range from overly restrictive to nearly all-inclusive, and none of these attempts have yet generated a consensus definition of electoral fraud that is workable in practice.

    In this paper, we first conduct a brief literature review by segmenting the definitions offered into two broad categories: inclusive definitions, which are broad-based and often refer to democratic norms or international standards, and narrow conceptions that generally take a law-based approach to identifying fraud. As we argue, there are elements of both approaches that are useful in efforts to eradicate fraud, but at the extremes, neither approach is a clear winner.

    Second, we clarify our own original, proposed framework for understanding fraud in order to address comments from election practitioners and academics and to address the drawbacks of other definitions that have been proposed by colleagues in the election community.

    Our definitions make reference to the significant differences between electoral fraud (deliberate wrongdoing) and electoral malpractice (negligent breach of an election professional’s duty of care), and focus on four key definitional elements: possible actors, type of action, intent and result.
    These distinctions provide clarity in discussions and assist election stakeholders in developing practical tools to detect, deter and mitigate instances of fraud and malpractice that have adverse effects on the electoral process.

    Bersih wants more independent observers


    Writer: Alvin Yap

    Published: Fri, 18 May 2012

    Hishamuddin at the event.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Bersih 2.0 has launched a new campaign to call for more
    election monitoring agents to be trained to ensure that voting is free and fair
    in the upcoming 13th general election.


    The polls reform group said the Election Commission (EC) had failed to
    act to clean up the electoral roll, and Bersih 2.0 was taking action to train
    the public to ensure that the voting process was untainted by a suspect polling
    database.


    “We have been betrayed by the EC. Every citizen should step forward to go
    for election monitoring training. Vote, watch and report any fraud.


    “Come out in numbers not seen before and detect, report and stop election
    fraud,” said Popular Communications for Human Rights in Malaysia (Komas) co
    founder Tan Jo Hann here on Wednesday.


    Bersih 2.0 launched the “Jom Pantau!” initiative which aims to train some
    400 individuals a week to become polling agents, counting agents and ‘barung
    agents’ or PACABAs.


    Headed by Komas and assisted by the Malaysian Election Observers Network
    (MEO-Net) and the National Institute for Democracy Electoral Integrity (NIEI),
    the move aims to get some 180,000 polling observers ready by the 13th general
    election.


    The training will be conducted by electoral watchdog Tindak Malaysia
    which said the target could be achieved if Malaysians are willing to provide
    the venue for the week-to-week training.


    “Whoever provides us the use of their home and facilities will be greatly
    appreciated,” said Tindak Malaysia chief Wong Piang Yow at the Kuala
    Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.


    Bersih co-chairperson Datuk A. Samad Said stressed that PACABAs played a
    frontline role in detecting electoral fraud.


    The national laureate said that the Parliamentary Select Committee’s
    (PSC) on Electoral Reform had failed to act against electoral fraud, but instead
    weakened the voting process further by not standing up against the amendments to
    the Election Offences Act recently.


    Among the changes to the act was the removal of election observers from
    polling areas during voter registration, balloting and a restriction on their
    presence during the counting process.


    The amendments, however, were withdrawn by Putrajaya because of
    concerns by civil society that there would be massive electoral fraud as a
    result of the changes.


    The septuagenarian also said that whatever possible fraud in the next
    general election would be mitigated by a large voter turnout.


    “Come out in numbers not seen before and vote. We call on all the rakyat
    to rise to the occasion and deliver the largest voter turnout Malaysia has ever
    witnessed in the upcoming GE13,” said Samad.


    A website (www.pru13.info) has also been set up to allow Malaysians to
    report any cases of electoral fraud through email, tweets, phone calls, text
    messages or by filling in a complaint form.

    MediaRakyat "Speak Out Your Mind": Bersih 3.0, What's Next?

    More to the point: Historically, it is always the middle-class that kicks out an oppressive government.


    Host: Patrick Teoh & Guest: Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan

    Ambiga: When you move the middle-class, it's a big problem for the Govt because it is very hard to move the middle-class.

    Around 2:30pm, we decided to end the rally and wanted to move right to Jln Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

    Ask the people who were there who hijacked the rally? No one can hijack their cause.

    The BERSIH leaders are really irrelevant. The people are there for a purpose. The key agenda is Free and Fair Elections.

    Is the Govt listening to the BERSIH 2.0 Steering Committee: Not enough.
    PSC, indelible ink, making noise about international observers.

    Look at access to fair access to the media.

    No political will to reform.

    Let the people judge. They did when they came out on Apr 28.

    Demonisation of BERSIH 3.0: A responsible Govt will not react to BERSIH 3.0 in such a manner and the people can see it.

    Independent panel led by ex-IGP who has already made his judgement. Govt should be truthful to the people, show integrity, coming clean. Look at the way the MSM is demonising the people. People don't like it.

    Patrick: You are accused of trying to bring down the Govt:
    Ambiga: We want clean and fair elections. We want to remove corrupt MPs through the ballot box. How can that be equated to bringing down the Govt?

    Patrick: How did the opposition win 5 states if there was no free and fair elections?
    Ambiga: They won despite it.

    Patrick: Will you boycott the elections?
    Ambiga: Never boycott. JOM 100 - full turnout.
    Take part in Tindak Malaysia's PACABA to watch in the polling station.

    THE MIDDLE GROUND HAS SHIFTED, SAYS AMBIGA

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=HeoAxQO2Dqs

    Appearing as the first guest in a series of talkshows on MediaRakyat.net, Bersih 2.0’s co-chairman, Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said that the middle ground in Malaysia has shifted.

    “This is what the authorities have to pay attention to: the middle class are not intellectually satisfied with the answers given by the authorities,” she said in the newly launched “Speak Your Mind”.

    She concurred with an observation made by Teoh who noticed that, compared to Bersih 2.0, a particular city club was full of people with yellow t-shirts during Bersih 3.0.

    Since being released on May 23, the first talkshow, titled “Bersih 3.0: Now, What's Next?” featuring Patrick Teoh as host and compere, has already attracted a total of 28,300 views at 1.40pm on May 31.

    According to Ambiga, the conspiracy theory that certain politicians had hijacked the April 28 peaceful rally can no longer hold water. “It is truly an insult to 250,000 people to say that anyone could hijack their cause,” she said. “People who say Leader X or Leader Y hijacked Bersih 3.0 are doing it to distract the people from the real electoral reforms.”
    Ambiga said the government has not made much progress after Bersih 3.0, although some areas are now being explored. For example, she said, if the government is truly committed to the free access to the media, it should implement it now!”

    “There is no political will to actually implement the electoral reforms,” she added. “I will let the people judge.”

    Ambiga also spoke briefly about the demonization of Bersih 3.0. “This is not going down well with the people at all,” she said.

    The series, initiated by media strategist, Stephen Ng and produced by Media Rakyat’s Chan Chee Kong aims to feature Patrick Teoh, dubbed the “man with the golden voice”, as the host of the talkshow. To date, two other interviews will be released soon on You Tube, featuring Wong Piang You of Tindak Malaysia talking about becoming Polling Agents, Counting Agents and Booth Agents (PACABA) and Arul Prakkash of Komas, talking about Jom Pantau.

    Both PACABA and Jom Pantau are part of Bersih’s two-pronged strategies in the aftermath of Bersih 3.0. To view the upcoming videos on MediaRakyat.net, readers can click on Media Rakyat’s Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/mediarakyatnet
