Haris Ibrahim's People Parliament. Do you think your MP has been doing fuck-all? Want to know who you should vote for at the next general election? Do you think you have it in you to run for elections?
This civil society man is not asking you to start a revolution or march the streets. He is asking you to do your bit and get to know your MP. If you know your MP has been sleeping on the job, sack him at the next general election.
Haris has listed down 10 constituencies for this initiative. First stop is PJ Utara.

In the meantime, Ijok gets set for Nomination Day tomorrow. It's Khalid Ibrahim vs K. Parthiban.
If you take Haris' approach and take a close look at the individuals, the Ijok by-election on April 28 would be a lop-sided a contest. Khalid, 61, is a Tan Sri, renowned corporate man, was the man who led corporate Goliaths such as PNB and Guthrie. Parthiban is 38, just a former Education officer, an Indian in a Malay-majority constituency.
It promises to be interesting. In the meantime, the blogs continue to cross swords.
The PKR-sponsored blog here says it has detected fraud and vows to expose the BN's "dirty tactics". You can expect the little army of Ijok BN's blogs to respond accordingly later today.
