    A Citizen Initiative for the Promotion of Free and Fair Elections


    During an interview with NTV7 on 9th Apr 2012, Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Razak assured us that elections will be free and clean. We have followed up with his assurances and a coalition of NGOs is putting forward a package of electoral reforms aimed at restoring the spirit and intention of the original Federation of Malaysia Constitution. To achieve this, we are proposing more than 204 amendments to the Enactments and Regulations related to the election systems and processes as well as to the relevant Articles of the Federal Constitution.


    In view of this, the electoral reform program of Tindak Malaysia - which began as an implementation of the 8 Demands put forward by Bersih 2.0 - has expanded this to cover a comprehensive review of the entire electoral system and process. These reforms are intended to bring Malaysians back to the democratic aspirations of the original Federation of Malaya and Federation of Malaysia Constitutions. These reforms will take us beyond the 13th General Elections and set the tone for the future of democracy in our nation.

    This initiative will challenge the politicians on both sides of the divide to work towards the restoration of the democratic stature. While some of the proposals will require the endorsement of a simple majority in Parliament, others only need to be approved by His Majesty the Yang di Pertuan Agong. Constitutional amendments will require a 2/3 majority vote. It is important that the politicians and their parties state their stance on these proposals before they go to the polls in GE13.


    Bersih 2.0 coalition successfully mobilised more than 200,000 Malaysians to demonstrate their concerns about the lack of free and fair elections. Issue-focused groups like HINDRAF (Hindu Rights Action Force), SMSL (Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas), SADIA (Sarawak Dayak Iban Association), SABM (Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia), SCANE (Sarawak Conservation Alliance for Natural Environment), ABU, electoral watchdogs (MAFREL & Sibu Election Watchers) and think-tank (Centre for Policy Initiative - CPI) have joined Tindak Malaysia to launch these proposals.


    We support Bersih 2.0s efforts on mobilising voters to achieve 100% turnout at the elections as well as to become monitors to observe and report on electoral irregularities during the 13th General Elections. Our proposals are meant to complement BERSIH 2.0s efforts and we look forward to gathering even more support from organisations and individuals to make this call for electoral reform a reality.

    一个促进自由和公平选举的人民倡议

    于2012年4月9日接受NTV7记者采访时,首相拿督斯里纳吉向人民保证,选举将是自由与干 净的。作为跟 进首相保证的努力,一群非政府组织组成的联盟提出了一整个选举改革的配套,旨在恢复马来西亚联 邦宪法最初的 精神和用意。为了实现这一目标,我们建议修订超过204项现有选举制度和流程的条文,以及相关 的联邦宪法条 款。

    有鉴于此,行动大马的选举改革方案:从一开始协助推动由Bersih 2.0联盟提议的八大诉求,现已扩大到全面检讨整个选举制度和流程。这些改革的目的是带领马来西亚人 民回到 在原有的马来亚联邦及马来西亚联邦宪法的民主诉求。这些改革将不止影响我国第十三届大选,也将 为我们国家的 民主未来奠下基石。

    这一倡议将挑战朝野双方一起努力恢复民主的地位。当中一些建议将需要国会议会的简单多数通过, 其它的提议只 需要由我国最高元首陛下批准。宪法修正案则将需要国会2/3的多数表决才能通过。所以所有朝野议员及政党必定要在进入第十三届全国大选前表态,是否会全力 支持这项选 举改革方案。

    Bersih 2.0 联盟成功号召超过200,000大马人民上街以示他们关注选举制度缺乏自由与公正性。各专注于 社会课题的团 体如兴权会HINDRAF(Hindu Rights Action Force), 拯救大马SMSL (Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas), SADIA (Sarawak Dayak Iban Association), SABM (Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia), SCANE (Sarawak Conservation Alliance for Natural Environment), ABU, electoral watchdogs (MAFREL & Sibu Election Watchers) 和 think-tank (Centre for Policy Initiative CPI) 等组织已经联合行动大马(Tindak Malaysia)一起推介这些方案。

    我们支持Bersih 2.0在号召与动员选民以达到100%的投票率以及在第十三届大选期间监督与报告任何违法的选举事务 的努力 。我们的方案将与Bersih 2.0 的努力起着相辅相成的作用。我们真切的盼望能够集合更多团体与个人支持,以让这项选举改革成为 一个你我的现 实。

    Abdul Gani, we were waiting for you to ask. Can we humbly suggest you look at the MERP? That is the definitive document for Free and Fair Elections. We have done all the hard work for you. Proposals to the Constitution, election laws and Regulations are done. All you need to do is run through it, tidy up the loose ends and ensure it conforms to legislative Draft Bills standard. We trust your officers are up to it.

    Now's your chance to put your money where your mouth is.

    A-G wants input on law reviews

    January 16, 2013

    Abdul Gani Patail says Malaysian laws are not a tool to regulate people but mould good behaviour and norms.
    KUALA LUMPUR: The Attorney-General wants more input and proposals from all stakeholders to assist his office in the transformation of laws appropriate to the current needs of the nation and people.

    Abdul Gani Patail said it was about time for the stakeholders to step up efforts in exploring all possible ways and means on how Malaysians in general, could better translate the concept of functional democracy, without compromising national interest.

    We need to be courageous to face changes and transformation in our quest for better prospect, even though this means having to leave our comfort zone, noted Abdul Gani during his closing remarks at a three-day conference today, on the Transformation of Security and Fundamental Rights Legislation at a hotel here.

    He said Malaysian laws were no longer just a mere tool to regulate people, but an instrument to mould behaviour and norms.

    Regulatory issues, civil liberties and individual responsibility are thus, of great importance and need to be addressed to attain the right balance and achieve the desired equilibrium, he said.

    Speaking on new laws intended to replace existing ones, Abdul Gani reiterated it would be done within the parameters of Article 10 of the Federal Constitution.

    He said laws related to the freedom of expression would be made, in accordance with the proper legal procedures to address current needs.

    Amendments have been made to the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 to endow students and student bodies with greater freedom of expression and association, apart from enhancing their rights and responsibilities.

    These amendments allow students to actively participate in political activities outside the university. This limitation is made, upon the consideration that universities, being the highest learning institution, should remain apolitical in the interest of the nation. One should act responsibly, said Gani.

    Commenting on one of the issues discussed in the new media at the conference, he said the abuse of the new media was clearly seen from rising complaints regarding acts committed by irresponsible persons such as cyber crimes involving false, misleading, obscene or indecent information.

    He said, although the new media attracted users, mainly due to its features, the people should not just look at individual fundamental rights but also the rights of the nation.

    Later, speaking to reporters, he said participants of the conference were concerned with individual rights of Malaysians, in general, and his office welcomed their views and ideas.

    They can e-mail or write to us, where their inputs can be taken into consideration when we are drafting or amending the laws, added Abdul Gani.

    On the proposed media council, he said, eight meetings had so far, been held, including meetings with bloggers and the Foreign Correspondents Club Malaysia.

    He said during the discussions, one of issues he raised was on the establishment of procedures to deal with complaints of misconduct.
