Keep Your MPs Accountable Through a Video Game-esque Platform

All of us know that there are 222 MPs in parliament. We cast our vote, in general, once every five years. But apart from the big wigs and famous faces, how many of us even know who those MPs are? How many Malaysians even know what an MPs job is in the first place? How then do we decide who to vote for, besides the party’s logo? Insert MyMP! 

MyMP is a project by a trio of volunteers and developers working with MCCHR (Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights) with the aim of making the process of getting to know your MPs fun and engaging. In this episode, the founders of MYMP join us to share what the platform is all about.
