Malaysia has a huge number of members when it comes to the Dewan Rakyat. There are 222 of them and more often than not, Malaysians don’t really know who they are. Hence, members of a civil society group have decided to compile and present all the details about the Dewan Rakyat members in a more fun and easy-to-digest way.
MyMP through their newly revamped website uses eight-bit avatars to represent Malaysian MPs with statistics and essential information about the them such as the constituencies they represent, how they performed in elections, and also their scores based on qualities like their availability, transparency, and work ethics.
Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights, or MCCHR, originally launched the website in 2014, but recently gave the website the needed makeover to make it more accessible and crowd-friendly in pursuing its goal of keeping the voters informed about the MPs.
As shared in the group’s FAQ, the website has been developed using funds obtained through grants from Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Malaysia (KAS). However, KAS does not influence the design and implementation of MyMP projects. MCCHR is fully responsible for the design and implementation of the MyMP project. KAS is a German foundation that aims to support democracy and the rule of law, human rights, extending cooperation between different countries and cultures, and promotes the German concept of a social market economy.
Any Malaysian can visit the MyMP website and search for any MPs that they want more information on. They just need to key in either their name, constituency or the area that these MPs belong to. The website is always updated with the latest information. As it is inspired by games, each MP’s avatar will also be scored between zero and ten and will have badges for any controversy they might be in. These details are supported by trusted news sources. So head on to MyMP and learn more about the MP that is representing your area or any other MPs that you might be interested in.
