Ever since his retirement, after 27 years of service at the Election Commission, its former chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman has been very vocal about the weaknesses in the system and what needs to be done to fix them. On his last day in office, he told the press that a review was indeed necessary to give the Commission autonomous power and total control over the election process. A veteran of seven general elections, Abdul Rashid believes it is the EC, and not other bodies, that should be in control during the campaign period to help in the furtherance of democracy and fairness in elections. In this book, he elaborates at length about the current electoral system in Malaysia, explains the historical context by which it emerged, and articulates what needs to be done to keep up with the times. A must-read for anyone interested in Malaysia's electoral system, especially as we head towards the 13th General Election, which will surely be the most hotly contested one.
