Leveling the Playing Field With Equal Constituency Development Funds

When it comes to addressing the rakyat's needs, unequal parliamentary allocations between government and opposition MPs has been a sticking point for decades. But Bersih 2.0 and IDEAS have come up with ways to suggest that all MPs and ADUNs receive equal CDFs, or Constituency Development Funds. In fact, they’re suggesting that Parliament legislates this, and are pushing for ways to ensure that these funds are spent more transparently, and for lawmakers to be held more accountable. We speak with IDEAS' Sri Murniyati Yusuf and Bangi MP Ong Kian Ming to find the best way forward for allocating CDFs.
