Conference Presentations of Local Authority In Malaysia: Revisiting Athi Nahappan Report For Our Times



We would like to take this opportunity to thank all speakers, moderators and participants that attended our conference on 13th of March 2015 in Parkroyal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

This conference is part of REFSA’s local authority month of March in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the abolishment of local election in our country in 1965. We hope to initiate a series of conversations through our conferences and publications to reignite interest in the once vibrant ground of democratic contest in our country – the local authority.
