Candidates campaigning for the 14th General Election (GE14) should consider human rights issues as among their main priority and commit to repeal or amends laws that are used to particularly curb the freedom of expression. Amnesty International Malaysia interim ED Gwen Lee (picture) said candidates should also push for the country’s commitment to end capital punishment and deaths in custody, while upholding and protecting the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, indigenous people, and LGBTI. The suggestions were made via “Malaysia: 8-Point Human Rights Agenda for GE14 Election Candidates” that was launched yesterday. The document is dedicated to Malaysian parliamentary candidates who are contesting in the election.
