The Elections Commission (EC) has the power to set the elections date, not the former Prime Minister. So was the date 8 March really decided by the EC or given by our numerology fan – Mr. 13? (And how come a number of us were told of that date in advance :D)
Maybe Rashid likes ’13’ too.
And on the issue of indelible ink, heads up folks. Sources claim it’s NOT likely to be compulsory.
Is that why he was ainsy?
Asked to confirm on the use of indelible ink in the coming election, the EC chief replied: “I will talk about that later. The procedures-procedures are not (main topic) in this session, we are more interested in the (election) dates.”
Pressed again, he retorted: “Did I say cancel? I will call you if there is any change.” (Malaysiakini, 14 Feb 2008)
