Electoral Redistribution Application (ERA)

Boundary delimitation is a crucial stage in the electoral cycle. It plays a significant role in ensuring proportional political representation through adherence to the one person – one vote – one value (OPOVOV) principle. To identify and elaborate on how to tackle the challenges related to malapportionment and gerrymandering on boundary delimitation process, International IDEA, Perludem, Bersih and Tindak Malaysia are jointly organizing a two-day regional roundtable discussion  between EMBs and CSOs from select countries across Asia and the Pacific. 

1. To identify various forms and ways of the occurrence of malapportionment and gerrymandering in the countries represented;
2. To learn from each other good boundary delimitation practices, thus preventing malapportionment and gerrymandering;
3. To elaborate any possible recommendation to tackle malapportionment and gerrymandering issues; and
4. To discuss the role of election technology like ERA in promoting sound boundary delimitation processes in accordance with international principles and best practices.
