SURPRISE REVEALED: UndiMsia! Imagining A Tastier Democracy (A fundraising event in conjunction with Malaysia Day 16092011)

UndiMsia! is a non-partisan campaign aimed to promote a vibrant democracy through a series of voter education deliverables targeted  at young Malaysians from the age of 18 – 35. We hope that through this voter education exercise, young Malaysians will take an interest on issues that matter to them and be armed with knowledge that will empower them to engage in constructive discussions and actions aimed at addresing these issues with their electoral representatives. We will be releasing our voter education materials in the next couple of weeks.

In the mean time, we’re organising a one-night event to raise funds for our deliverables. Read below for the event’s information.

 

Remember when a lot of people all over town were going crazy over the BIG SURPRISE?

Well, get ready, coz here it is!

If you’re sick and tired of a broken democracy with no class, it’s time for something FRESH! Come UndiMsia! is our exploration into what a democracy should be – one with healthier values, better priorities, and that sense of integrity we’ve been missing so much.

WHAT WHAT?

 

 

Over the next 2 weeks, beginning tomorrow (Wed, 9 August) we will be introducing the candidates on our special FB page – some of these are personalities you already know and love. We feel they possess qualities for a unique brand of democracy for a better Malaysia. Watch never before seen recordings of them discussing their ideas, views, and vision.

AND THEN?

 

 

The elimination rounds begin!

YOU get to decide whose ideas best represent the kind of Malaysia we want to see. Just click “LIKE” on the photos and videos of your favourite candidate. Get your friends, neighbours, relatives, pets and rabbis to LIKE them too because every week, the candidates with the fewest number of LIKE’s will be eliminated!

Here’s how it will work:

Week 1 & 2: Two candidates introduced everyday

Week 3: Voting commences. 4 candidates eliminated.

Week 4: Voting continues. 3 candidates eliminated.

Week 5: Last chance to vote on Facebook! 3 candidates eliminated.

The final 10 remaining candidates will go on to compete at the Grand Finale on Malaysia Day (16 September 2011) at Leonardo’s in Bangsar, hosted by the FABULOUS Glamazonian Goddess, Shelah!!!
