Poll: Malaysians most confident of their elections

The Star (6/12/2007): Malaysians are not only the strongest supporters of democracy in Asia but are also the most confident that their country's elections are fair and free, according to a recent study by TNS and Gallup International.

New findings from Gallup's Voice of the People research showed that Malaysians' belief in the transparency of their elections stands in contrast to the sentiment expressed by more than half of respondents across the region who do not consider their country's election processes to be impartial.

The survey interviewed more than 60,000 people in 56 countries around the world, representing the views and attitudes of more than 1.2 billion citizens.

Eight out of 10 respondents surveyed across Asia agreed that democracy is still the best system of government despite it facing problems.

About 73% of Asians said they were satisfied with the overall democratic practices in their home countries -- only 6% of Malaysians were dissatisfied. Nearly half (47%) of respondents said their elections were weighted, imbalanced and biased.

Malaysians generally felt that they were well represented by their government's actions and that they had political stability and security.

TNS and Gallup International conducted the study in Asia between June and August this year with the citizens of Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, India, Pakistan, Thailand, Philippines and South Korea.
