UndiMsiaChats #2: Constituent Delineation – fair electoral borders, equal representation?
November 21, 2016 @ 20:00 - 22:00
In mid-September, the Election Commission issued a notice that they would propose recommendations for a redelineation of constituency boundaries. How would the implementation of those recommendations influence Malaysia?
By organizing a series of #UndiMsia! chats, we want to find answers and unpack the issues of gerrymandering (Session 1), constituent delineation (Session 2) and discuss electoral reforms (Session 3).
Come join us for our second #UndiMsia talk on constituency delineation, with a representative from Tindak Malaysia, an organisation working towards a fair electoral system.
Constituency delineation? What’s behind that?
It generally refers to the (re-) drawing of electoral boundaries. Delineation all sounds very technical, BUT it has a very practical impact on the future of Malaysia.
Re-delineation can have a significant impact of an election’s outcome. By re-delineating, the majorities in a constituency can be shifted. By making a constituency bigger or smaller, your vote may actually loose or gain value.
Join us and Tindak Malaysia to find out the current state of electoral boundaries and how they may shift in the near future. Have a fruitful discussion on the fairness of this process and whether Malaysia applies international standards.
