  • Why are there no local elections in Malaysia?
  • Is local democracy just about local elections?
  • What about people’s participation and power?
  • Can we have local democracy without local elections?
  • Does the Local Government Act provide for more public participation?
  • How can public as ratepayers demand for more participatory power?

These are some critical questions posed in the book to be discussed in the book launch.
