Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof, the head of the Election Commission (EC), is an unmitigated hypocrite in his reason for the proposal to introduce proxy voting. He claimed the proposed system is aimed at empowering individuals to cast ballots on behalf of registered voters unable to do so themselves at designated voting stations.
Well, why doesn't he lift the restriction on voting for many overseas Malaysians - Malaysian citizens who are eligible to vote but deliberately marginalised from voting by a 2002 amendment to the election Act because they presumably "aren't seen to be pro BN" (i.e. those who aren't public servants, students on government scholarship, armed forces personnel, most of whom are non-Malays).
On one hand the EC deliberately disenfranchises many overseas Malaysians from voting, while now it proposes a system to enable registered voters to use surrogates to cast their votes for them. It's basically talking cock.
The proposal stinks to high heaven. How will this Abdul Aziz answer to his Maker for another EC nonsense?
another 'legitimate' excuse to create ghosts.... maybe?ReplyDelete
Agree with you. It's mighty fishy!ReplyDelete

Like the postal vote system, this latest proposal is clearly intended to provide UMNO/BN with phantom votes.ReplyDelete
A half-arsed proposal by the brain dead!

Finally they figured out that this is the way to remain in power forever!ReplyDelete
I have to say though, as someone who was working at DAP pondok panas for the last two elections, my initial reaction to seeing this proposal was "oh good, now we can do away with the silly spectacle of party workers jostling to carry wheelchair-confined voters up stairs" :PReplyDelete
But yes I agree, it's ludicrous for the EC to even contemplate this when they couldn't even manage indelible ink.
Ini lah UMNO punya style. Stinks.Tak ada maruah langsung but think they can stand tall.ReplyDelete
The 3 million Indon migrants here would happily allow unmo proxies to vote on their behalf, for a mere RM50 each.ReplyDelete
you sure that EC dumbo has to answer to his Maker? UMNO is more important to him, aint it? No, he is more concern on answering to UMNO.ReplyDelete
PROXY VOTING IS BASED ON THE COMMUNIST PRINCIPLE 'IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THE FIRST TIME CHEAT."ReplyDelete
