From Malaysiakini article Objections filed against nomination of candidates:
A protest was lodged by PKR at the Negeri Sembilan parliamentary seat of Rembau against the nomination of Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar. PKR contended that Khairy had not written ‘Bin’ (son of) in his nomination papers.
The Election Commission official said the protest was rejected on the ground that Khairy’s identity card did not state ‘bin’ on it.
I feel embarrassed that our politics have descended to such low level trivialities as to object to a candidate because of a missing ’bin’.
Then, there was:
In Chembong, it was due to the alleged failure of the BN candidate Zaiful Bahri Idris to state his occupation as ahli perniagaan (businessman). Instead, PAS contended, Zaiful Bahri had mistakenly written berniaga (conducts business). The protest was also rejected.
Aiyah, c’mon lah.
Mind you, in a number of other cases where the BN candidates were alleged to have balls-ed up with their registration forms, ‘twas only the returning officers who saved them, in many cases not even providing any reason to the opposition why their objections were overruled and the BN candidates' forms accepted. The Boleh-decisions ;-)
In one case Malaysiakini reported that PAS candidate Dr Lo’ Lo’ Mohd Ghazali (for Titiwangsa) objected to the nomination of BN’s Aziz Jamaluddin Mohd Tahir on the 'suspicion' that Aziz’ statutory declaration did not contain the required stamp duty payment.
hahaha - EC chairman Abdul Rashid has been too clever by half.
It seems Aziz Jamaluddin also contravened election laws when he allegedly paid his deposit with a personal cheque. Cek calon BN di sahkan Bolehwan lah! hahaha
But the Election Commission officers - led by returning officer Che Yahya Che Soh - refused to allow the PAS team to go through Aziz’s nomination papers to verify the claims.
Che Yahya said he received directions from his superiors to the effect neither candidate are allowed look through the other’s nomination papers. What he probably meant was PAS couldn't look at BN's papers to see if there were indeed errors, like no stamp duty being paid ;-)
Very dodgy lah. But mind you, this is BN Boleh Bullsh*t Land.
