After close to 5 years, Malaysia’s 15th General Elections (GE15) is scheduled to take place real soon.
Some believe it will take place within a matter of weeks, while many others believe it will only take place some time early-to-mid next year (2023).
Despite the speculations, many citizens have started searching for more information on the polling dates to prepare themselves for the big day.
To keep voters in the know, we’ve decided to compile a list of useful apps one can download to stay updated with the latest GE15 news and results — check them out below:
SendStory is an app that helps people save time reading the news by summarising long articles into 3 simple sentences using artificial intelligence.
Users are able to read news up to 8X faster than other apps in the market, and there is absolutely no set up / configuration required after downloading the app — users simply start reading immediately after download.
At present, SendStory already curates and recommends news from over 100 publishers in Malaysia, including news on GE15 polling dates and results.
The Vibes is a fairly new publisher that was launched in 2020 by prominent entrepreneur Vinod Sekhar (founder of Petra Group).
Since inception, the company has quickly become a household name among urban residents in Malaysia, covering a wide spectrum of news especially in the areas of politics and business (GE15 news included).
The Vibes mainly distributes their news online, and have even launched their very own free app to bring timely updates to their readers via push notifications.
The Star is one of Malaysia’s most popular newspapers, and the primary source of information for many citizens.
As a mainstream newspaper, The Star covers everything in the country from A-Z, which includes politics and even GE15 predictions.
While the company initially started out with print newspapers, it has since evolved by offering content in the digital space as well.
Google News is one of the world’s most popular news aggregation apps, and a great place to stay updated with news from a wide range of publishers.
The app also syndicates content from nearly every mainstream Malaysian news publisher — making it a great place to stay updated with GE15 news and results.
The only drawback about Google News is the fact that they only aggregate content from “Google-verified” publishers, resulting in content from smaller / lesser-known publishers to be omitted — which is a downside for people trying to obtain opposing views on GE15 (or politics in general).
Malaysiakini is a very popular news publisher in Malaysia, and has risen to prominence in recent years due to past General Elections.
While highly regarded as an alternative news outlet for political news, Malaysiakini covers a broad range of topics in 3 local languages (Malay, English, and Tamil).
During the past General Elections, Malaysiakini was one of the main websites for Malaysians to get GE15 news and polling results.
