The Bersih's eight-point memorandum was delivered to the palace on Friday by two members of the steering committee.

KUALA LUMPUR: Election watchdog Bersih 2.0 has finally delivered its eight-point memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.
Richard Yeoh and Liau Kok Fah, members of the Bersih 2.0 steering committee, gave the memorandum to an aide of the King’s private secretary on Friday afternoon.
“The memorandum called for electoral reforms,” Liau told FMT today.
Bersih 2.0’s eight-point memorandum calls for a cleaning of the electoral roll, the reformation of the postal ballot, using indelible ink, a minimum of 21 days for campaigning, free and fair access to media, the strengthening of public institutions such as the Election Commission, and putting a stop to corruption and dirty politics.
It also calls for the release of the six leaders of Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM), including Member of Parliament Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, who has been detained under the Emergency Ordinance.
The Bersih 2.0 rally held on July 9 saw tens of thousands people dressed in yellow taking to the streets to call for fair electoral processes.
However, the Bersih steering committee members were not able to march to the palace to deliver their memorandum as they had been arrested earlier by the police.
