    Delimitation: Tindak Malaysia Stage 2 Proposal - EACDS

    Tuan/Puan,

    SISTEM PENTAKSIRAN SEMULA DAN PERKEMBANGAN KAWASAN PILIHANRAYA (EACDS) TINDAK MALAYSIA

    Dengan sukacitanya Tindak Malaysia mengumumkan penerbitan persempadanan semula kawasan pilihanraya yang disamaratakan untuk semua kawasan Parlimen dan Dewan Undangan Negeri ( kecuali untuk Labuan dan Putrajaya yang merupakan kawasan Parlimen 'standalone'. Tuan/Puan boleh mencapai dan muat turun peta-peta berkaitan dari laman sesawang www.tindakmalaysia.org.

    Untuk makluman semua, peta-peta ini adalah hasil kajian selama tiga tahun dari kumpulan sukarelawan yang membiayai sendiri usaha ini.

    Data pilihanraya dan peta kawasan pilihanraya dibina ke dalam Sistem Maklumat Geografi (QGIS) yang didapati online secara percuma di www.qgis.org. Dalam laman sesawang kami, tuan/puan boleh lihat kawasan kerusi Parlimen dan Dewan Undangan Negeri sebelum dan selepas proses menyamaratakan kawasan pilihanraya. Peta kawasan pilihanraya secara individu boleh didapati dalan format yang boleh dimuat turun.

    Sekira tuan/puan mendapati bahawa persempadanan semula berdasarkan peta kami lebih sesuai daripada cadangan yang bakal dikemukakan oleh SPR, tuan/puan boleh memilih untuk muat turun peta kawasan ini dan mengemukakan peta ini sebagai alternatif.

    Prinsip asas yang melandaskan cadangan penyempadanan semula yang lebih sama rata adalah berdasarkan Deklarasi Hak Asasi Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu dan Artikel Jadual Ketigabelas Perlembagaan Perseketuan. Antara prinsip yang diguna pakai adalah :

    (i) Mengekalkan 222 kerusi di Parlimen Pusat dan agihan kerusi Parlimen kepada setiap negeri berlandaskan pengubahan kepada Perlembagaan Persekutuan pada tahun 1973.
    (ii) Mengekalkan jumlah kerusi semasa dalam setiap Dewan Undangan Negeri
    (iii) Sisihan maksimum yang dibenarkan dari electoral quotient untuk kerusi Parlimen Persekutuan dan DUN sebaik-baiknya tidak melebihi 20%. Electoral Quotient atau ' EQ” merujuk kepada nilai yg diperoleh bila jumlah pengundi dibahagi dengan jumlah kerusi untuk setiap negeri. Penyamarataan ini adalah seiring dengan prinsip Klausa 2(c) dalam Jadual Ketigabelas.

    Kami juga telah merangka sistem yang boleh mentaksir cadangan SPR dalam beberapa hari sahaja.

    Pihak kami amat mengharapkan agar tuan/puan akan melawat laman sesawang www.tindakmalaysia.org; kaji peta serta analisis kami agar memupuk minat yang serius terhadap proses persempadanan semula oleh SPR serta mengambil bahagian dalam proses perundingan awam di mana SPR akan mengemukakan cadangan persempadanan semula.

    Impak dan implikasi dari persempadanan semula adalah amat berat dan kesannya jangka panjang kepada generasi yang bakal mewarisi negara kita. Sesungguhnya sikap tidak mengambil tahu bukan merupakan satu pilihan.

    Kami sentiasa mengharapkan maklum balas serta saranan daripada tuan/puan untuk memperbaiki cadangan-cadangan ini.

    Jika anda berminat, sila hubungi kami di :

    Terima kasih.

    Dear Sir

    TINDAK MALAYSIA’S ELECTORAL ASSESSMENT AND CONSTITUENCY DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM (EACDS)

    Tindak Malaysia is proud to announce the publication of equalized constituency boundaries for all Parliament and Dewan Undangan Negeri seats (except for Labuan and Putrajaya which are standalone Parliamentary constituencies). You can access and download the maps from our website www.tindakmalaysia.org.

    These maps are the result of 3 years of research and development by a group of self-funded volunteers. The electoral data and constituency maps are built into a geographical information system (QGIS) that is available free online (www.qgis.org).

    In our website you will find State maps showing parliament and State assembly seats before and after equalization. Maps of individual equalized constituencies are also available in a format that can be downloaded. Should you conclude that these maps are preferable to the forthcoming SPR proposals and should you have reasons to object to their proposals, you may wish to download and submit ours as alternatives.

    The basic principles governing our proposed equitable delineation are based on the United Nations Human Rights Declaration, and the Federal Constitution Thirteenth Schedule, and include:

    (i) Maintaining the present 222 seats in the Federal Parliament and the allocation of Parliamentary seats to each State following the 1973 amendments to the Federal Constitution;
    (ii) Maintaining the present number of seats in each Dewan Undangan Negeri;
    (iii) The maximum allowable deviation from the electoral quotient for both Federal Parliament and DUN seats shall as far as possible not exceed 20%. The Electoral Quotient or “EQ” refers to the value arrived at when the total number of voters are divided by the number of seats for each State. This equalization is in line with the principle of Clause 2(c) of the Thirteenth Schedule.


    We have also developed a system that can assess SPR’s proposals in a matter of days.

    We hope you will visit our website www.tindakmalaysia.org; study the maps and our analyses, develop a serious interest in the coming SPR delineation process and participate in the public consultation process when the forthcoming SPR delineation proposals are announced. The ramifications of any constituency delineation are severe and the effects long lasting. It can result in a democratic spring or announce its death. Indifference is not an option.

    We look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how to improve these proposals.

    Should you be interested please contact us at:

    Thank you

    Yours faithfully

    Tindak M’sia: Maps for fairer elections ready for review

    FMT Reporters
    | November 1, 2014






    NGO proposes its Electoral Assessment and Constituency Development System (EACDS) for fairer elections.

    PETALING JAYA: In a move to make general elections fairer and more democratic, non-governmental organisation Tindak Malaysia announced that its EACDS maps were ready for download from their website.


    Essentially, the EACDS proposal, also known as the Electoral Assessment and Constituency Development System was put together as a proposal to the Election Commission for the next general election.


    In a statement, founder of Tindak Malaysia PY Wong said, “The ramifications of any constituency delineation are severe and the effects long lasting.


    “It can result in a democratic spring or announce its death. Indifference is not an option.”


    Considering the severity of the issue, Tindak Malaysia was meticulous in putting together its proposal, spending three years on research and development to get it right.


    Built into a geographical information system (QGIS), the basic principles governing Tindak Malaysia’s proposed equitable delineation were based on the United Nations Human Rights Declaration, and the Federal Constitution’s Thirteenth Schedule.


    Explaining the proposal in greater detail, Wong said, “The proposal maintains the present 222 seats in the Federal Parliament and the allocation of Parliamentary seats to each State” as well as the present number of seats in each Dewan Undangan Negeri or DUN (state assembly).


    Wong added, “Apart from this, the maximum allowable deviation from the electoral quotient for both Federal Parliament and DUN seats shall as far as possible not exceed 20%.”


    The maps are available at Tindak Malaysia’s website and members of the public are encouraged to analyse and give their feedback so the proposal can be improved.


    The public is also advised to participate in the public consultation process when the Election Commission announces their delineation proposals soon.


    Tindak Malaysia’s EACDS maps may be downloaded free of charge.

    行动大马上载网络 建议理想选区划分图

    国內2014年11月2日







    (吉隆坡2日讯)在选举委员会即將进行选区划分之际,选举监督组织「行动大马」(Tindak Malaysia)公佈一份理想的选区划分地图,促选委会接纳该组织的建议。

    「行动大马」建议,在国会及州议会议席数目维持不变的情况下,重新划分选区边界,所出现的偏差,不超过20 %。

    「行动大马」创办人黄炳耀表示,他们一批自愿人士,耗时將近3年的研究,並以自费方式花了將近2万令吉,向 选委会购买所有选区的地图,以便进行选区重划。

    他表示,此举也是其中一个降低民主门槛的举措,让民眾对于选区重划的问题上,扮演更积极的角色 。

    他说,为了確保每一个国、州选区的选票都拥有接近的价值,该组织利用一套线上免费的「地理资讯系统」(QG IS,网站:www.qgis.org),以进行选区重划。

    他指出, 已经將该组织建议的理想选区划分地图, 上载该组织网站(www.tindakmalaysia.org),以让公眾下载及参阅。

    黄炳耀说,如果公眾认为,拥有更好的选区划分建议,也可以从该网站下载地图,以制定替代的选区 地图。

    他指出,是根据联邦宪法第13列表及联合国人权宣言的原则,制定这份选区划分地图。

    採取3原则

    他说,进行选区重划时,採取以下3项原则:

    一、国会议席总数维持现有的222个,各州的国会议席数目也原保持不变,並依据联邦宪法重划选 区。

    二、所有州议席总数维持不变。

    三、所有国、州议席的选票价值偏差,不得超过20%。黄炳耀指出,公佈这份理想的选区划分地图,显示该组织 对选区重划是认真的,也希望选委会在进行选区重划时,能正视民间的声音。

    「选区重划的影响是非常深远的,这影响到国家的下一代,当局不应该漠视民眾的意见。」



    「行动大马」把建议中的理想选区划分地图,上载该组织网站(www.tindakmalaysia.org),公眾可下载及参阅。

    Electoral NGO comes up with ‘fairer’ redelineation maps for voters

    BY EILEEN NG
    Published: 2 November 2014

    Tindak Malaysia founder P. Y. Wong says the organisation wants to lower barriers to democratic engagements. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, November 2, 2014.With the Election Commission (EC) expected to embark on a redelineation exercise soon, electoral reform group Tindak Malaysia has put up maps of constituencies online that showed fairer distribution of voters.


    With the exception of Labuan and Putrajaya, the NGO had uploaded maps for all federal and state seats on its website tindakmalaysia.org for the public to access and download.


    Their aim is not only to show that it is possible to come up with alternative maps that the group claimed to be more equitable but also that there would be small differences to the number of voters in every constituency within the same state.


    The map is also aimed at educating the public so that they can make objections and counter proposals when the EC displays its maps during the exercise.


    "We want to lower barriers to democratic engagements. We are like a facilitator. Hopefully, this will spur the public to play a more active role," said Tindak Malaysia founder P.Y. Wong.


    Under Schedule 13 of the Federal Constitution, affected members of the public can object to the boundaries proposed by the EC if there is a representation of more than 100 voters from the same constituency.


    Besides the public, state governments and local authorities are also allowed to register their objections.


    The EC is required to organise a local inquiry upon receiving the objections as stipulated under the constitution.


    Wong said maps showing parliament and state assembly seats before and after equalisation is available on Tindak Malaysia's website which is downloadable.


    "Should the public conclude that these maps are preferable to the forthcoming EC proposals and if they have reasons to object to the EC proposals, they can download and submit ours as alternatives," he said.


    He said the maps are the result of three years of research and development by a group of volunteers and the NGO spent at least RM20,000 just to buy maps from state EC offices.


    The group had also engaged MPs from both sides of the divide but Wong said "only one side is interested" although he refused to reveal whether they are BN or Pakatan MPs.


    The redelineation exercise is long overdue as the last one was held in March 2003. The redelineation should have been done in 2011 but it was deferred because of the 13th general election last year.


    The boundary redelineation process had been regarded by the opposition and civil society groups as a primary tool in BN's manipulation of the electoral process, where gerrymandering or the manipulation of electoral boundaries, and malapportionment, or unequally-sized constituencies, had been linked to the EC.


    They claimed this had led to one rural vote being worth six urban votes in the May 5 national polls that BN won despite losing the popular vote to Pakatan Rakyat.


    However, the EC had stressed that the redelineation exercise was needed to balance out parliamentary areas to ensure they do not burden the elected representatives.


    The EC had said it is looking at increasing federal seats by about 15% to 20% in its redelineation exercise – expected to take place soon – with new seats being carved out in Selangor, Johor, Perak, Kelantan, Kedah and Terengganu.


    In an interview with English daily The Star in February this year, EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof had said that it was looking to split seats in Selangor, Perak and Johor where there were more than 70,000 voters.


    "We got feedback from elected representatives that it was too difficult to service their voters when their constituency is too big and we heard from voters that it is difficult for them to get to see their representatives. So we must do something," he was quoted as saying. – November 2, 2014.

    Don't be fooled: Check your electoral boundaries online


    Details Created On Sunday, 02 November 2014 14:14Published Date Written By Cogito Ergo Sum Category:News

    No more hiding of data and mystery in electoral boundaries, for NGO Tindak Malaysia will be putting the maps online in digital format for all to see.


    Tindak Malaysia founder PY Wong says that this is to force the Election Commission to be more transparent when it attempts to redraw the boundaries.



    Speaking to a news portal, Wong (right) said, "What can be more transparent and competent than to have these digital maps online?"


    He added that if volunteers could create maps that minimise malapportionment and make them publicly accessible, the EC should be able to do so too.


    Wong also said that these expectations were reasonable for the rakyat. "The EC should put these maps online so that everybody can have access to them.


    "What can be more transparent and competent than to have these digital maps online?" he said, as quoted by the news portal.
