PETALING JAYA: The government is acting on some of Bersih’s proposals and is considering the others, says Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Anwar said his administration was open to recommendations from the electoral watchdog, especially those that could improve the electoral process.

“Dialogue and the opportunity to exchange views are crucial for understanding the aspirations of civil society and the challenges faced by the government, especially on the issues raised in this memorandum.”

He however did not elaborate on the proposals that Putrajaya was mulling or acting on.

Anwar was responding to a memorandum that was presented to him earlier today by Bersih chairman Faisal Abdul Aziz.

It also comes a day after Bersih held a gathering outside Parliament, which was attended by 100 participants, to demand that the government implement political reforms.

The reforms include passing into law a Political Finance Act, separating the office of public prosecutor from that of the attorney-general, and limiting the prime minister’s term of office. - FMT
