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 21 August includes Berita Harian, Tamil Murasu, and also photos from the media coverage of candidates on 24 August.
Our findings on 21 August 2011 are set out below. You can also download all of the findings as a PDF file.
