Abstract: This is a two-case study on public interest litigation in the promotion of good governance in Malaysia and Singapore. It also assays the significance of public interest litigation in an administrative state. Various barriers were erected by the executive to preclude judicial review of executive action by way of public interest litigation. The Malaysian case of Government of Malaysia v Lim Kit Siang brought the liberalisation of standing rules in public interest litigation to an end in the late 1980a??s. Public interest litigants should not be discouraged by this. They should continue to invoke public interest litigation as an effective tool to right any administrative wrongdoing. Singaporea??s position of having no public interest litigation is unique. This is due to the existence of a good public administration. Public interest litigation therefore promotes good governance in public administration, and can be a panacea for administrative ills in public administration.
