Many people may find it hard to believe how election pressure group Bersih managed to collect RM1.5 million for the mammoth rally it will hold this weekend.
There is also a question of whether the strong financial backing will translate into people coming out to paint the town yellow, perhaps in larger numbers than in the previous Bersih rallies.
Another hot topic is the effort to table a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak at the next session of the Dewan Rakyat. A mere talk or will it happen?
People also want to know who the opposition MPs will support as Najib's successor - the sacked Muhyiddin Yassin or veteran leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah?
All these questions, and many more on related issues, will be answered in a forum titled ‘1MDB: People's Protest or Dewan Rakyat?’ which will take place at the Malaysiakini office in Petaling Jaya tonight.
Prominent and esteemed figures in the panel are:
- A Kadir Jasin, veteran newsman and famed political observer;
More excitingly, the audience can interact with the panel members in a Q&A session on all the issues that will be discussed.
For those living out of the Klang Valley, the forum will be brought live through live.malaysiakini.com.
Those who prefer face-to-face encounter can attend the forum at our office at PJ 51 Business Park, @Kini, No 9 Jalan 51/205 A, Off Jalan Tandang, Petaling Jaya.
