In the run-up to the coming general elections, Perak Women for Women Society hosted a talk by Tindak Malaysia on voters’ rights. Tindak Malaysia is a Kuala Lumpur-based non-governmental organisation dedicated to educating Malaysians on their rights as voters. This self-funded NGO has been actively pursuing its objective in tandem with Ambiga’s Bersih rallies.
The talk, conducted by Tindak Malaysia’s Christopher Wong, touched mainly on electoral reforms and ways to detect frauds, especially at polling stations. Attendees, made up of members of NGOs in Ipoh, participated actively in the question and answer session at the end of the talk.
Although the audience was relatively small it did not, deter Tindak Malaysia from doing what it knows best. “We’re determined to spread the gospel, come what may,” said Christopher to Ipoh Echo.
