In 1999, the elections saw the entry of Malaysiakini, with a news team of 4 led by senior journalist Steven Gan.
In 2008, the elections will see the entry of Malaysiavotes.com, with three senior journalists – Jacqueline Ann Surin and Cindy Tham (formerly from the Sun and the Edge) and Danny Lim (formerly from Off-The-Edge). They will cover election news on mobile basis in battleground states like Penang, Perak, Kelantan and Klang Valley.
We should thank Vincent Tan for giving the final push for the journalists to get into this new venture.
