PETALING JAYA: Former Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah (pic) has unveiled her election manifesto, promising dignity for all.

Maria, who will be contesting the Petaling Jaya parliamentary seat under the PKR logo, said that the manifesto was a simplified version of what she has been fighting for all these years.

"It also represents what we can achieve for the country if elected," she said during a press conference at her service centre here on Thursday (April 26).

Her manifesto includes working to achieve a clean and fair government; a living wage that will ensure a comfortable standard of life; equality and justice for women; youth empowerment as well as developmental and environmental justice.

To achieve the objectives in her manifesto, she said that she would work with state seat representatives from Bukit Gasing, Taman Medan and Seri Setia, which fall under the Petaling Jaya parliamentary constituency.

Maria also said that if she won, she plans to call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the election system in the country as well as local council elections.
