Due to internet network problems in Batang Ai we are a bit late to report the nomination situation from Batang Ai. The nomination process went on quite well except some moment of tension arose when the police decided to seize PAS’ party flags on the excuse that PAS is not a contesting party in the by-election. despite being a Pakatan Rakyat’s component party. After some heated arguments the police relented.
According to our observer on the ground Kalai the PKR Jerai Division leader who announced his departure from the party yesterday was seen going around town today at 3.00pm, with a loudhailer to ask voters not to vote PKR. His action, while uncertain in its effect, reflect exactly the kind of distraction which a party would not like to see at this closely fought election.

TAIPING: Pergerakan Wanita Umno telah mengesan kehilangan kira-kira 5,000 pemilih dari bahagian Parlimen Bukit Gantang.
Sehubungan itu, sayap tersebut mahu Ibu Pejabat Umno mengesan kedudukan ahli-ahli berkenaan bagi menambah sokongan untuk BN menjelang 7 April ini.
Menurut bekas Ketua Wanita Umno, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, jentera pergerakan tersebut yang telah mula bergerak sejak awal bulan lalu, tidak dapat berhubung dengan pemilih-pemilih berkenaan sehingga kini.
“Kami telah melakukan segala yang perlu tetapi tidak dapat mengesan mereka.
According to Mafrel’s analyst the finding by PKR on the voters roll has been confirmed to be a good find. More analysis of the same issue can be found at
Mafrel found more names in the same address because we “standardized” the house numbers, eg, “3”, “No. 3”, “No.3” and “No 3” are the same, and need to be “cleaned up.”
The reason so many voters are “living” in the same big virtual house is because SPR neglects to register the street names, such as Lorong 1, Lorong 2. You can google “Kedah Taman Bandar Baru” and you will find street names do exist there.
Nevertheless, this SPR omission does open the opportunity to hide out-of-town phantom voters on a big scale.
