The training at the long house just out of Lubuk Antu, Batang Ai went well-14 observers volunteered after the training. If the 5 observers from Kuching are counted we are not far from the minimum target of recruiting 24 accredited observers to be posted to all 24 polling centres in Batang Ai by-election. While the spirit is strong-the body is reaching its limit. The observation mission here require a minimum budget of about RM7-9K to enable a more complete operation-to cover from nomination day to polling day. Since our fundraising drive announced a week back we had received Rm1900.00 in pledges. We are still in need of more donations/sponsorships to reach the target-but let’s thank those generous souls who had already donated;
*Union Rm 500.00
*Internet readers (2) Rm100.00
Total : Rm1900.00
Hope those who want our election systems to improve will donate generously to enable volunteers from Sarawak to perform this very essential operation to keep the election here -notorious for various votes buying antics, under closest possible scrutiny!
