A roundtable on “Institutional and Legislative Reforms on Political Financing in Malaysia” was organised on 8 February 2010 with the support from the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.
The key objective of the Roundtable was to debate the proposed recommendations for reforms on political financing in Malaysia. TI-M had undertaken research on the state of political financing in Malaysia as well as a review of election laws in the country. The draft of the proposed recommendations was presented at the Roundtable to gain insights, feedback, comments and recommendations from various sectors, such as politicians, academicians, civil society organisation, and policy makers. Professor Yoon, Jongbin from South Korea, who was a speaker for the event shared the experiences of South Korea in reforming political financing in that country.
The roundtable was well attended with a total of 40 participants from various sectors. They included Members of Parliament, representatives from the Pemandu, Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission, politicians and academia. The TI-M President, Datuk Paul Low Seng Kuan opened the Roundtable.
