Ensure strong checks and balances

THE Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih) calls for strong and effective check and balance mechanisms to protect public interest as we begin a new chapter under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his mixed coalition government.
