GIAT is a coalition of 7 NGOs advocating for good governance standards.
GIAT (Governance, Integrity, Accountability and Transparency) is a coalition of civil society organisations who advocate for good governance at all levels of government. The members of GIAT are the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS), Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4), Sinar Project, Transparency International-Malaysia, Friends of Kota Damansara, MyPJ and The Society for the Protection of Human Rights (PROHAM).
In light of the upcoming General Elections, GIAT proposes the Good Governance Agenda for Malaysia for all political parties to endorse. There are increasing expectations from the public that government should promote good governance and high standards of integrity in the public service. Every government is therefore obliged to put mechanisms in place that would promote an understanding that it is functioning with integrity.
The GIAT Coalition is meeting with political parties, seeking theri responses and ultimately their pledge to enact these five points for good governance at any level of power, in light of the upcoming 14th Malaysian General Elections. Closer to the elections, we will be preparing a report detailing their responses, and the coalition will continue to hold them accountable for their pledges throughout the next electoral cycle.
