EVERY citizen in Malaysia should raise a voice to reform the “Act of 2018”.

Age limits should be introduced for Parliamentarians (from 35 to 60) to prevent a drain on our economy.

Parliamentarians should not get Pension since it is not employment but Election under People's Representation Act. It has no retirement with bar on reemployment but they can get reelected to same position again, .. etc. (Currently, they get pension after 5 years of service) .

Parliamentarians pay should be revised in line with Central Pay Commission.

(Currently, they increase/raise their salary arbitrarily by voting for themselves) . 

Parliamentarians should lose their current health care system and participate in the same health care system as the general public in Malaysia. 

(This will be the only way we can improve our current poor public health system.)

All concessions like free yearly travel, electricity, water, groceries, phone bill should be abolished.

 (They not only get this concessions but they also regularly increase it – boldly and shamelessly.)

Parliamentarians with tainted records, criminal charges and convictions, past or present should be summarily banned from the parliament and contesting election on any pretext or the other. 

Financial losses incurred due to politicians in office, must be recovered from the politician, their immediate families, benomies, nominees, properties.

Parliamentarians should equally abide by all laws they impose on the general public. 

Outriders only given to PM and key 4 important ministers (e.g. Finance, Defense etc.).  Of the ministers not given the outriders, they will understand and make our local public roads to improve (without the outriders they will be forced to leave early to arrive on time for their public appearances and work). 

Currently the public has to suffer the delayed road works, and bad jams due to  bad planning of development.

All elected Parliament officials must declare their previous wealth and income and this applies to Senators and opposition as well. 

An independent Audit be done every two years on their wealth and reported in major local news papers and a copy available by the Auditors web portal. 

Another audit be done on politician that quits,resigns or servers his term as public official.

Once they elected, they should remain in the same party. If not, they have to leave politics. 

They should not be permitted to contest from another party and in addition, the ability to cross over should  be abolished.

Serving Parliament is an honour, not a lucrative career for looting.
