Why East Malaysia should not be allocated a third of parliamentary seats

The redrawing of electoral boundaries is a constitutional process to ensure that the value of one’s vote is equal, irrespective of our geographic and demographic background.

The redrawing exercises can only be done no less than eight years after the last exercise – which means we are in an incredibly critical juncture right now. Sarawak can begin its redrawing exercise this year, Sabah in 2025 and the peninsula in 2026.

One of the big questions on everybody’s mind is: should East Malaysia be allocated a third of the parliamentary seats?

BFM speaks to Danesh Prakash Chako, the director of Tindak Malaysia, an NGO focused on promoting democracy, good governance and active public participation in Malaysia.
