Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil(Bersih 2.0)
The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (better known by its Bahasa Malaysia name “BERSIH” issued its first joint communiqué on 23 November 2006. At its formation, BERSIH comprised civil society organisations and political parties with the objective of campaigning for clean and fair elections in Malaysia. BERSIH’s journey thus far has been both monumental and memorable. The public demonstration of November 2007, which saw thousands of ordinary Malaysians take to the streets in support of clean and fair elections, was a critical juncture in our nation’s electoral journey. Almost 3 ½ years later, the aims of BERSIH remain relevant. The time came for BERSIH to continue its crusade for clean and fair elections independent of any political party. BERSIH was thus re-launched as BERSIH 2.0, a coalition of like-minded civil society organisations unaffiliated to any political party. Our aim is to effectively monitor both sides of the political divide.
