PKR is the only party in the country with a national leadership election taking place over several weeks due to the large voter base. It is similar to a general election, where every eligible member can vote.

As the long-drawn-out process can be confusing to keep up with, Malaysiakini has developed a PKR election tracker to help our readers stay up to date.

The election process is taking place over the course of eight weeks from Sept 22 to Nov 10. 

During this time, Malaysiakini will provide consistent updates on the overall tally. 

The PKR election tracker also shows how the candidates have performed in each state and their weekly standing throughout the election period.

The data is drawn from the PKR central election committee, which releases the information through voluminous documents.

Malaysiakini compiles and distils this data so that our readers can easily have a clear, big-picture view of the PKR election without having to delve into the nitty-gritty.

Here is a sneak peek of the tracker. For the best experience, visit our full site here.

All other parties in Malaysia can complete its election process in a day because of their smaller voter bases.

For example, only 1,209 PAS delegates could vote in the party's 2017 election. Umno, which practises an expanded delegates system, had about 146,500 eligible voters in its recently concluded election.

As for PKR, the party had around 760,000 members as of June 25, with most eligible to vote.
