Municipal Elections

It has been in our agenda ever since before the previous general elections to fight for the implementation of open elections to elect our municipal councilors to both Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) and the Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) as well.

However, this could only be done when the Local Government Act is amended to enable municipal councilors to be elected by voters and the Pakatan Rakyat is still fighting for this level to be open up for elections.

In order to amend the Local Government Act, we had to have this tabled in the parliament and convince the floor of our need to have the third vote take into effect at the municipal levels. The major obstacles here are will the Barisan Nasional MPs ever ready to support our moves?

So in order to continue strive the third vote, we need your support as well to show to the BN government that we mean business and our objective is Competency, Accountability and Transparency. To the BN MPs, we hope you could come over to support us for the benefit of our people.
