Bersih 3.0 rally to support fair election in Malaysia held in Perth, Australia

News Perth, Australia - 28 April 2012

Bracing the rain, Malaysian supporters dressed in yellow to distinguish themselves in the crowd and gathered at the office of Consulate General of Malaysia in Perth for the Bersih 3.0 peaceful rally as views of the Malaysian supporters situated in Perth were read out.


The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Malay: Gabungan Pilihanraya Bersih dan Adil) or Bersih (meaning clean in Malay) is a coalition of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which seeks to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections. It was officially formed on 23 November 2006 as a joint communiqué that comprised leaders from political parties, civil society groups and NGOs.
 
Bersih accused the independent Election Commission for manipulating the electoral process to give an unfair advantage to the ruling National Front coalition. Bersih claimed that the electoral roll was marred by irregularities such as gerrymandering, phantom voters, malapportionment and postal vote frauds.
 
In 2011 and 2012, two more rallies (Bersih 2.0 and Bersih 3.0) were organised seeing that the demands for the electoral reforms have not been met by the Electoral Commission.
