The EC will decide on the details (polling date, nomination date) of the 2 by-elections on coming Friday-watch out. The by-elections most likely would be held simultaneously -even though 1 is a State Assembly seat (Bkt Selambau), and another one, a Parliamentary seat (Bkt Gantang). Even before the details are out the 2 sides are already posturing for a big fight.
Since the 2 by-elections would be held in the Northern Region we will have to reactivate all the observers Mafrel had trained before this. We also welcome more volunteers observers to join us-with full training given. Volunteers can choose to go on duty for the duration of the whole election process (ie from Nomination to polling -about 2 weeks) or just on polling day itself( 1 day plus training sometimes before polling day). Accomodation for outstation volunteers could be arranged. Anyone interested (to do reporting, documentation, voters’ verifications, campaign auditing, photography, video-taking, analysis, organising, computer graphics, etc etc are welcome!) please contact us through 013-5900339 or firstname.lastname@example.org attn Ong
