JAG calls for fresh elections

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

The Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG) is outraged by attempts to undermine the will of voters and demands for fresh elections to protect our democracy.

In the 2018 general election, Malaysians voted for reforms as promised in the Pakatan Harapan manifesto. These reforms include the advancement of women’s rights.

Attempts to form a ‘back-door government’ are undemocratic, a betrayal of voters and a disruption to promised reforms.

Any new government must get a new mandate from the rakyat through fresh elections. Otherwise, the government would have no legitimacy.

We deserve a government with integrity, elected by the rakyat and accountable to the rakyat.
