SPR kicks out 24K voters July 16, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Politics.
We’d asked SPR to clean up their rolls of deceased and suspicious voters. We’d asked them to use indelible ink to flush out the ‘phantoms’.
They said, it’s too hard lar, too much work lar, we’re trying lar etc. So many excuses.
Instead, the SPR decided they are really elves of the National Registration Dept by taking out 24,000 registered voters just because they haven’t changed to MyKad. (See Bernama report)
Reason? Because they want to encourage people to get new MyKads.
But wait … Kamaruzaman Mohd Noor, the SPR secretary also said the 24,000 voters have to re-register. This means their names aren’t on the latest rolls, and if elections are held in August, that’s it.
No vote for non-MyKad holders.
Genius, man. You just gave the Opposition thousands of new volunteers, supporters and potential funders.
Rashid – your job is to administer elections. You are neither a clerk of the NRD nor do you have the right to decide on what type of citizen gets to vote. If they register with the SPR, they have the right to vote. Unless you’re declaring them as non-citizens?
Wow. Mr Prime Minister and the deputy. You sure know how to pick the right guys.
(Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the stench of General Elections!)
