Bersih 2.0 organisers to hold another street protest if redelineation done without clean electoral roll


KUALA LUMPUR: Organisers of Bersih 2.0 will hold another street protest if the Election Commission proceeds with the redelineation process of parliamentary constituencies without cleaning up the electoral roll.

Its co-chairman Datuk S. Ambiga said the coalition would embark on a nationwide campaign to educate and raise awareness of the public regarding the consequences of the redelineation process expected to be conducted by the end of the year.

“If they insist on the process of redelineation, I do not rule out the possibility of holding Bersih 4.0.

“Because if this is the only way they (Government) are going to listen to us, that is what we are going to do,” she told reporters at an electoral reform seminar organised by the Bar Council here Saturday.

She said the EC should not rush into the redelineation exercise and must clean up the electoral roll as it would be meaningless to make any real electoral changes without having it fixed.

EC member Datuk Dr P. Manogran, who was also present at the seminar, said the commission would study all the proposals made by the Bersih 2.0 regarding electoral reforms.
