Clean up electoral process before polls

27
130

The latest controversy in our electoral rolls system is Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim finding his polling constituency changed from Selangor to KL.

Many of us have heard tales about how the electoral rolls are suspect. About how most Malaysians abroad not being allowed to vote, unless they actually come home. About last minute postal votes. About people with bags of money moving around. That prompted me to write this commentary for Asia Times Online even before Khalid’s complaint.

Is Malaysia headed for an orderly or tumultuous political transition? Despite widespread popular concerns about the potential for electoral fraud and irregularities, political analysts believe Prime Minister Najib Razak is poised to call snap polls in the coming months while his approval ratings are high.

Last month, a member of a Parliamentary Select Committee on Electoral Reform disclosed that an audit of the electoral rolls revealed some 200,000 dubious registered voters. The audit, undertaken by Mimos Bhd, a government-owned technology company, found more than 10,000 cases where more than a dozen individual voters resided at the same listed address.

I am not saying there is no hanky panky by EC. However, in some cases, there will be sudden spikes in Voters, as PR continues to carry out aggressive voter registration.
Has PR considered that?

What a joke !!! I think if you sit in a court room everyday, you will know the endless list of criminal activities. But so what ??? Anything to do with change ??? Pakatan takes over and no more criminal activities ??? So funny ~

Pala Richie

Gerakan K, the opposite, we expect more criminals in court after PR take over, more correctly we expect to see BN’s politician charged in court.

We think the IGP is naiive, when he say only 1% of police force corrupt. We are convinced either MACC sleeping their job on the police or 98% of them are skillfull in hiding their hand.

We think Gerakan K is as naiive as the IGP, not understanding what santa claus is saying.

Endless criminal activites now starts with UMNO and Perkasa thuggery and violence and corruptions.

tunglang

You are right, Yang.
Ever since Pakatan took over Penang from BLH…, have there been more incidents of violent thuggery disruptions unequalled by hooligans, not even by the famed secret societies of the 60’s & 70’s in Sia Boay or Chit Tiao Lor.

Gerakan K, I do not have any problem with giving out money to the people, but surely you are not saying that what Najib is giving out with borrowed money, it is the correct thing to do ? I am unaware that HK or Singapore are also doing it and even if you are correct they are doing it with their own peoples’ money. May be when the country goes bankrupt and becomes another Greece or Iceland and unfortunately Malaysia is not part of EU and who is going to bail Malaysia out, Indonesia ? Also who is going to… Read more »

clean the kandang lembu as well ….

najib manaukau

That was how the shenanigan Mahthir stayed as the P.M. for 23 years, Anil you forgot to mention. And that is how Najib is trying to emulate the shenanigans… ! Najib is also giving out millions, if not billion, of ringgits of money Malaysia do not have or better still with borrowed money. This is truly what he meant when he said ‘ to win at all costs’ but forgot to mention it is not with his own fortune ! How come this P.M. or all the P.Ms. of Malaysia are doing this to Malaysia or may be they are… Read more »

Gerakan K

Sigh ~ Please click upgrade now. Your mind need to be updated ASAP.

Giving away $$$ is current trend now. LGE did it. 1Malaysia PM Najib did it. Singapore did it. HK did it.

The point is, 1Malaysia PM Najib gave you more, that’s RM 500 !!! Wow, many people so happy now and they will GRATEFUL to BN and make BN will BIG next time.

Yeah, vote for change now. Please change the state admin from DAP to BN. 2nd wave of free money is coming from BN soon. Let’s celebrate ~

tunglang

Gerakan K: 2nd wave of free money is coming from BN soon.
You talk as if you are going to get it too!
One K or 2K? Desperate measures know no bounds!

Ah Kong’s treasury must be bleeding like rain water this afternoon!

Gerakan K

Incorrect. Tax dept said we got plenty of $$$.

Pala Richie

Why, tax dept is one big ATM machine, like PMO?

Money only ma!… why are you so poor?

tunglang

Tax money is meant for nation building, not to buy votes, paham?
Why should there be back scratching?
We are not ‘gatai’ for another 50 years of bankrupting the almost bankrupt nation.
Why not you give away your kedai runcit goods to the poor on election day to show your sincerity of making Rakyat happy to come out to vote?

Pala Richie

Gerakan K, … not everyone trade their soul with money.

DAP give out good money, surplus money, bonuses. Your Umno give out bad money, deficit money, spend beyond means.

When others give away money, as sharing, as appreciation for success, Umno follows, why? like you say, umno take it as new trend, umno wanted to keep up the trend. But, what is the point when you have to borrow to give away.

Unfortunately people like you, Gerakan K, are happy and expect more! Idiot voters get idiot government, don’t show your idiocy here, please…

Gherkin and his best mate.

Andrew I

If I looked like that, I’d probably blame others for my miserable existence.

GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE!

Ahmad Sobri

It is indeed a disgrace to your community, that there are stupid shallow minded souls like you. Najib gave 500? More than Pakatan? You sick head. Do you think (we) are stupid? This is one off, and may never recur again. Wheras Pakatan are giving every year. If Najib gives 500 once in five years, it is still the same, is it not? Just a couple of cents per day. How insulting this Najib administration! Malaysia is down the road of no return, unless, unless the Rakyat act and stick together come PRU 13 and together we vote in unity… Read more »

Gerakan K

Ya betul, boh kari. Kita kena tukar kerajaan Penang. Tiada rumah kos rendah. Peniaga tertekan sehingga perlu buat demonstrasi.

Reject PAS’s ban ban ban agenda dengan reject DAP, PKR dan PAS sepenuhnya.

Andrew I

Reject is a word that applies to your party, Gherkin.

Gerakan K

My message to smart people out there. The EC is clean as distilled + RO water.

If EC is bias, they will do it quietly and in very low key i.e. they dare not to touch any opposition big gun like Selangor MB.

Tahniah kepada EC.

Suhaimi

EC should be cleansed first. It is like the ‘hantu dalam botol kicap’!

Leithaisor

It has been said that one should not underestimate the stupidity of the foolish, the ridiculous lengths which the desparate will go to, nor the arrogance of those who have got away “with murder” in many ways before…

Pala Richie

Gerakan K, the fact is EC did change it quietly in very low key without informing the voter, so you agree EC is bias.

The fact EC do this to the MB prove they are not only bias but also very arrogant.

The facts quoted by you proved EC is bias and beyond redemption. Yet, you equal EC with your RO water, stop drinking mud everyday, it could be the reason you do not have a clear mind?

Leithaisor

Brings to mind Najib’s infamous defend Putrajaya at all cost even if bodies are crushed and lives are lost call issued from the podium during the 2010 UMNO General Assembly. As well as continual efforts by UMNO to drill into the heads of civil servants and assorted government bodies that UMNO/BN is the boss, and they must be loyal and supportive of the boss, as opposed to the nation and the rakyat. So when the officials of the Election Commission seem to be acting in a manner which gives rise to serious questions about their impartiality and integrity, can folks… Read more »
