7 Things to do this weekend: 19 & 20 November 2022

While we’re rejoicing at the upcoming weekend, don’t forget that it will be a very important one as Malaysia’s 15th general elections will be held tomorrow, November 19, to decide who our leaders will be for the next five years. Apart from performing your civic duty, we’ve also compiled other exciting activities to do over the weekend ahead.

Five million of you from this age group will be first-time voters, but fret not, as we have compiled an infographic of dos and dont’s on polling day. We answer more of your FAQ about GE15 here, and provide a simplified guide to the parties and coalitions in Malaysia here.
