Bersih to hold third rally on April 28


KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 — Election watchdog group Bersih 2.0 confirmed today it will hold its third rally for free and fair elections on April 28.


The gathering, scheduled for 2pm on the day, will be held simultaneously at numerous locations in Malaysia and across the globe.

The rally, themed “Duduk Bantah” (sit-in protest), makes the same eight demands from its second instalment last July 9.

They are: a cleaning of the electoral roll, reforms to postal voting, the use of indelible ink, free and fair access to media, a minimum 21-day campaign period, the strengthening of public institutions, a stop to political corruption, and an end to “dirty” politics.

The event follows the coalition’s dissatisfaction over the parliamentary select committee’s (PSC) 22-point electoral reforms proposal, which was tabled and approved in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday without debate.

Bersih 2.0’s last rally on July 9 had drawn a crowd of thousands to the streets of the capital, despite the government’s earlier warning that participants would be arrested.

Opposition lawmakers and Bersih leaders had promised the gathering would stay peaceful but chaos had broken out at midday when riot police used tear gas canisters and chemical-laced water to disperse protestors - The Malaysian Insider
