The Past, Present and Future of Parti Sosialis Malaysia

Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj, Chairperson, Parti Sosialis Malaysia

The Past, Present and Future of Parti Sosialis Malaysia

Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) was registered by its founding members on 30th April 1998, though it was only formally registered 10 years later. But from 1998, they have been at the forefront in fighting for the rights of the working class, including on issues like housing for all, rights for workers and decent living wages, climate change and renewable energy, quality and affordable healthcare, and so much more. Though faring poorly at GE14, the party continues to advocate for and help marginalised communities in Malaysia. In a belated nod to International Workers' Day, we speak to Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj, the Chairperson of Parti Sosialis Malaysia, about all the party does to help the working class community, and their plans for the future.
