As you all may be aware, the Kuala Lumpur Bar Young Lawyers Committee (KLYLC”) had embarked on a new initiative for to the Bar Council Election 2011/2012, known as the Candidate Watch Campaign.

The list of candidates was released by the Bar Council secretariat on 1 November 2010 and we have on the same day circulated a set of 7 questions to each of the candidates via email. The list of questions was also sent to the candidates via post and fax subsequently and each candidate was asked to respond by Friday, 12 November 2010.

To date, we have received replies from 18 candidates out of the 26 candidates vying for seats on the Council for the 2011/2012 term.

The replies from the candidates who have responded to the questions, reproduced in their original form (i.e. no editing was carried out) can be found below. Please note that some of the candidates have requested the KLYLC not to reproduce their replies outside of the Malaysian Bar website without their consent, so for these candidates you will be redirected to the the Malaysian Bar website, where you will be able to view their answers.

The KLYLC wishes to thank the candidates who have reverted to us for their time and for supporting the Candidate Watch Campaign. We hope that that this inaugural initiative would result in members of the Bar, especially the young lawyers, to be more receptive towards and actively participate in the Election. With this, we believe that you would be able to make a more informed decision and have your voices heard in the Bar Council.

    What are they waitng for? My only hope is in the Bar Council as it is the only forum right now that can do something meaningful to socially elevate the country to it's former glory.

    Why is it that the committee members make all the correct noises only after they have left the commitee/term expired? Are they restricted by any statutory rules and regulations?

    I was always thinking the Bar is autonomous just like what the judiciary is supposed to be.

    Hope the incoming office bearers will have the backbone…
