Selamat datang

Chances are, you're here because you're concerned about where this country is heading. Pissed, even.

You're not convinced about the feel-good messages that are being floated by the Malaysian government as the General Elections loom ahead. You wanted more integrity, but you were fed lies. You wanted well-conceived ideas executed, but you found cronies milking the country dry. And those pretty promises? Empty, as usual.

We can effect change. Yeah, us.

And it begins with who we vote as our MP. Simple as that.

We're a group of citizens who want to bring back respect to Parliament. We believe the overwhelming majority that Barisan Nasional has in the House has been detrimental to civil society. Out with the zoo. We want checks and balances. We want good laws and due diligence. We want institutions that perform.

We're the Get an MP initiative. Facilitated by The People's Parliament, this movement is now up and running in six constituencies: Segambut, Selayang, PJ Selatan, PJ Utara, Subang, and Kelana Jaya. We'd like you to be part of it.

If you're registered to vote in these constituencies – and you want to have a say in who's your MP – get in touch with us. We'll first verify that you're indeed a voter, and then you'll get to join the Get an MP group of your constituency. Thereon, there will be people within your group who will help get you oriented.

Each group will evaluate the candidates, listen to their action plans and their commitment to the constituents. As a group member, you get to decide if the candidate meets your criteria; that the best person walks into Parliament bearing the aspirations of your kinfolk. You're the boss.

Vote in the right person, and half the battle's won. Join us. Our email:
