SISTEM DUA PARTI DI MALAYSIA
SUATU ANALISA KRITIKAL

Forum Sosialisma adalah satu acara tahaunan anjuran Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) yang diadakan sejak tahun 2005. Namun setiap tiga tahun sekali. PSM juga menganjurkan Sosialisma Peringkat Antarabangsa.

Pada tahun ini, Sosialisme 2009 adalah peringkat nasional tetapi jemputan juga dibuka kepada penyertaan peserta-peserta dari Parti kiri di Asia Tenggara. Pada tahun ini, penyertaan peserta Asia Tenggara dari Indonesia, Thailand, Phillipina, Singapura akan turut bersama untuk memantapkan debat dan perbincangan.

Topik Sosialisme 2009 yang dipilih adalah Sistem Dua Parti -- suatu analisa Kritikal. Sejak Tsunami Pilihanraya Mac 8, 2008. Politik Malaysia buat pertama kalinya memberi satu harapan bahawa Barisan pembangkang -- Pakatan Rakyat mempunyai harapan untuk memerintah negara buat kali pertama. Harapan ini mencetuskan debat bahawa Malaysia semakin matang untuk pergi ke sistem politik dua parti.

Namun beberapa persoalan terus wujud dari segi keberkesanan sistem dua parti dan pengalamana di negara lain, persoalan samada penukaran parti membawa kepada penukaran sistem pemerintahan dan ketiga samada ada, teori politik berperingkat (stages) merupakan satu pengalaman yang wajib dilalui sebelum perjuangan sebenar dilaksanakan .

TWO PARTY SYSTEM IN MALAYSIA
A CRITICAL ANALYSIS

Socialism is an annual conference organized by the Parti Sosialis Malaysia(PSM) and has been held since the year 2005. This national conference goes international every three years once.

This year, Socialism 2009 will be a national conference but with the attendance of participants from left organizations from the South East Asian region. The presence this year of participants from Indonesia, Thailand, Phillipines and Singapore at the conference will further add to the debate and discussion.

The topic chosen for Socialism 2009 is the Two-party System -- A Critical Analysis. The Election Tsunami of March 8, 2008, has given rise to the possibility of the opposition front, the Pakatan Rakyat, ruling the country for the very first time. This prospect has sparked off debate that Malaysia is ready to move on to the two-party political system.

Still, many questions persist regarding the efficacy of the two-party system and the experience of other countries, whether a change of ruling party leads to a change in the system, and thirdly whether as per the political theory of stages, it is necessary to pass through this stage before launching the actual struggle.
