Podcast #107: Boundary delimitation, straight from Malaysia


Today’s podcast was recorded at the roundtable on Boundary Delimitation and Malapportionment in Asia and the Pacific held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on October 28-29, 2023. The event was hosted by Indonesian NGO Perludem and Malaysian organisations Bersih and Tindak Malaysia, in coordination with International IDEA.

I attended to present on Papua New Guinea’s electoral boundaries and while there I recorded interviews with six of the other participants.

In this episode you’ll hear from:

  • Niranjan Sahoo, from India
  • Heroik Pratama, from Indonesia
  • Wong Chin Huat, from Malaysia
  • Luie Guia, from the Philippines
  • Enkhtsetseg Dagva, from Mongolia
  • Adhy Aman, from International IDEA

Thanks to everyone for joining me.

  1. Love the international stuff, thankyou. Good to hear that Indonesia, to which I have a personal connection, is moving, albeit haltingly, in the right direction on this stuff.

  2. PNG has odd boundaries. They are based off districts, for starters, but they don’t make too much sense. The town of Rabaul has its own electoral district while the capital city of Port Moresby has three. This is despite Port Moresby having over 360,000 people and the entire Rabaul District having just under 40,000 people.
