Ibrahim’s opposition party is gaining more and more support from the Malaysian people. They’re fighting for democracy, something the former deputy prime minister describes as “an independent judiciary, free media and an economic policy that can promote growth and the market economy.” He now faces fresh charges over his part in a mass rally for electoral reforms. If found guilty he may be sentenced for up to two years in prison and a fine, which could mean he was disqualified from standing in elections. But he remains optimistic on the future of Malaysia, describing his 2008 campaign to get elected to parliament: “We won 10 out of 11 parliamentary seats, and so I believe we are ripe for some sort of Malaysian Spring through the electoral process.”
