ANFREL coordinators in Kuala Lumpur to Meet with Election Commission
Two of ANFREL’s coordinators recently met with the Secretary of the Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) Malaysia, the Malaysian Election Commission, Datuk Kamaruddin bin Mohamed Baria. The two ANFREL representatives were in Kuala Lumpur to meet members of the election commission and other election stakeholders. At the meeting with the SPR, ANFREL discussed the coming elections and some of the electoral reforms that the election management body has put into place for the 13th Malaysian general election. ANFREL also expressed its willingness to contribute, via observation or training, to the effort of ensuring that the elections will be free and fair. At present, the SPR has accredited 5 non-observer domestic groups to observe the elections. For ANFREL's statement on the first round of accreditation, click here.
