Understanding The Dewan Rakyat

Understanding The Dewan Rakyat

Understanding The Dewan Rakyat provides a comprehensive profile of the Lower House of Parliament in Malaysia, known as the Dewan Rakyat, as a measure of the state of the country’s parliamentary democracy. The book provides answers to help readers understand Malaysia’s system of governance, and how power is vested in Parliament, in the speaker of the House, and in those who are elected to represent the people. For the first time in Malaysia, the book also compiles the profiles of all 222 Members of Parliament (MPs) who were elected in 2008. These profiles were obtained through The Nut Graph’s MP Watch:Eye on Parliament online project, and provide voters with a sense of how their respective MPs would vote on issues that affect Malaysia’s democracy.

Specifically, it clues Malaysians in on what they can expect of their MPs with regards to issues such as detention without trial, the “Islamic versus secular state” issue, and freedom of information. It also delves into the challenges MPs face that prevent them from fulfilling their legislative roles as fully as possible. Additionally, the book highlights MPs’ suggestions across the political divide for strengthening parliamentary democracy in Malaysia. Part informative and part analytical, Understanding the Dewan Rakyat is a useful guide to Malaysia’s political landscape and the health of the country’s democracy. It provides citizens, journalists and analysts a tool to navigate Malaysia’s Parliament. And also gives politicians, political parties and the government vital clues on what needs to be and can be done for the nation.
