Towards a better democracy

AS a political battleground, Sabah is bursting at the seams. Never has there been such a crowded election in Malaysia as the one scheduled to be held on Sept 26 in the Land Below the Wind.

A total of 447 candidates – 56 independents and nominees from 16 parties – will vie for the 73 seats in Sabah’s 16th election. It looks like a high stakes free-for-all with multipartite contests in all seats.
