Land of the 60,000 "living" dead voters !



statement by EC deputy chairperson Wan Ahmad Wan Omar that "the errors were due to negligence of the clerks." hahahaha !

The EC, with cooperation from the National Registration Department (NRD), removed the names of 69,293 dead voters and 1,068 others stripped of their citizenship from the electoral roll between July and Sept 15.

EC secretary Kamaruddin Mohamed Baria, disclosing this in a statement yesterday, also said the collaborative effort was mounted to clean up the roll as continuous preparation to face the next general election.

The EC is also in the midst of investigating the status of 50,000 other voters in the electoral roll to ensure that mistakes are not made in removing names.

"The investigation requires the EC to refer (to) and get confirmation from various authorities including the NRD, armed forces and the police concerning the voter's citizenship status and identity card number, as well as their status in the forces and police," he said.

He stressed that the removal of names and investigation of the status of voters has been due to sustained pressure from the rakyat.

Registered voters died almost everyday and when they died, their names are not authomatically deleted because our life is not connected directly to the NRD. The family have to make reports regarding the death and the EC will have to make thorough checked with NRD & PDRM, before cacelling the 'living' dead registered voters.

You will be surprised, for a non bumi who died the name is deleted from the roll quite instantly more so if the deceased had voted in the opposition constituency. I had checked it out.
