Inclusive Electoral Reforms in Malaysia

Publication Date: January 2020 | 28 pages (inclusive of cover)


Inclusive Electoral Reforms in Malaysia is a report investigates the various barriers to electoral and political participation by traditionally marginalised voters in Malaysian society. It looks into four social groups: women, Orang Asli, low-income groups and persons with disabilities. Using a literature review and a series of focus group discussions,  the report identifies the major barriers, both implicit cultural  barriers to voting as political participation all the way to explicit practices on voting, and makes corresponding recommendations to improve access to the basic human right of democratic voting.
This report was funded with assistance from The Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (BERSIH 2.0) and the German Federal Foreign Office.
