Media monitoring of Presidential Elections (20 August 2011)

MARUAH (Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism, Singapore) is conducting an election watch project on the Presidential Elections. This follows a similar project conducted by MARUAH during the General Elections in May 2011.

We will monitor the election coverage by the mainstream media, specifically the Straits Times, TODAY, New Paper, and Lianhe Zaobao. (We are unable to cover the other languages and other media, e.g. TV and radio, because of resource constraints.) Note: Coverage for 20 August includes Berita Harian and Tamil Murasu.

Our findings on 20 August 2011 are set out below. You can also download all of the findings as a PDF file.
