According to the constitution of Malaysia, we adapt the parliamentary democracy in closed system with the Westminster system. And also, Malaysia is a multiparty system during the election. Meaning, there is no limit on how many party can contest in either parliamentary seat or state assembly seat. However, the scenario in Malaysia nowadays is moving into a 2-system party. Due to the fact that, most party has aligned themselves into one entity to coop with the harsh atmosphere of Malaysia politics.

I will do this in an easy way, cast your vote based on candidates and not based on Political Parties. Remember, in Parliamentary Democracy, you are casting your vote for the candidate and not for political parties as there are possibilities of ‘defecting’ MP, and this can prove to be fatal. Still remember the Perak Crisis right?

So, vote wisely Malaysian
