PETALING JAYA, July 29 ― Bersih 2.0 will hold its fourth rally across three states from August 29 to 30 to demand for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to resign over his handling of 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

The electoral watchdog said today the overnight rally will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Sabah and Sarawak starting 2pm on August 29.

“Bersih 2.0 hereby declares that the Bersih 4 rally will be held on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu from August 29, 2pm to August 30...we are overnight [sic],” Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah said at a press conference here.

“We invite all patriotic Malaysians to join the rally to demand for Najib to step down and institutional reforms to be implemented so as to end prime-ministerial corruption,” she added.

Maria added they will announce the exact locations for the rally later.

Bersih 2.0 has previously warned that they will hold a rally should Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak fail to answer allegations of his involvement with the debt-laden state investment fund.

Both the Public Accounts Committee and special taskforce led by various government agencies are currently investigating the issue.
