Network Censorship Monitoring and Testing of Malaysia's 15th General Election (GE15)

In the previous elections, our monitoring captured data that proved a few ISPs blocked the website showing unofficial election results from Malaysiakini. For the GE15 held recently, we published a guideline to seek more measurements on OONI specific to links related to the election.

The final test list for the election totalled up to 62 URLs, consisting of categories News and Media, Politicians and Political Parties, Social Media, Official Election Commission websites, and Election Monitoring websites.

During the election day, no blocking was detected except for www.bersih.org, which had been found blocked throughout the year.
