KUALA LUMPUR: A coalition of civil societies has called for political parties to endorse five key institutional reforms before the coming general election.

The coalition, Governance, Integrity, Accountability and Transparency (Giat), proposed a five-point Good Governance Agenda for political parties to adopt, which includes endorsing legislation that will affirm the independence of institutions – chiefly the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Attorney-General's Chambers – and also requiring by law that all Cabinet members, Members of Parliament, elected officials and senior public officials publicly declare their assets.
