Bersih 3.0 rally

The Bersih 3.0 rally (also called the Sit In rally or Duduk Bantah in Malay) was a demonstration in Kuala Lumpur held on 28 April 2012. This rally was organised as a follow-up to the 2011 Bersih rally and the 2007 Bersih rally. The rally, which is being organised by the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih), was supported by Pakatan Rakyat, the coalition of the three largest opposition parties in Malaysia. Following the last rally in 2011, the government of Malaysia organised a Public Select Committee (PSC) into looking at electoral reforms in Malaysia which recently release their proposals on electoral reforms. Bersih has claim that PSC proposals were half-hearted and pointed out that the Election Commission of Malaysia (EC) is insincere in introducing electoral reforms. Bersih has stated that they would call off the rally if the Malaysian government gives a guarantee that the electoral reforms will take place before the next Malaysian general elections.
