1. What is Redelineation?

Once every 8 years, the Election Commission (SPR) will redelineate our election constituencies. This means to redraw the boundaries of our Parliament and DUN seats. Yes, it make sense do to so because of development and changes in population over time in an area.

2. What is the Problem?

If not done correctly, the redelineation process could be manipulated to favour some parties in elections. It will have a huge impact on election results!

Two of the common problems are malapportionment and gerrymandering.gerrymandering and malapportionment

3. What Can We Do About It?

Object! Our Federal Constitution requires SPR to publicly display the new proposed maps. Voters can file an objection if they think that the new maps are unfair. SPR then has to hold an enquiry and take the objection into consideration.

For each Parliament/DUN seat, 100 voters from that seat are required to group up and submit an objection.
