After Mafrel observers working in Bkt Gantang made discovery of dead voters in their area, Mafrel observers working on the Voters Verification Exercise in Batang Ai made additional discoveries of dead voters -including 3 dead voters who somehow still inhabit the SPR’ uncleaned roll-including 1 case where the person had been removed from the JPN (National Registration Dept) roll! SPR has been excusing itself for not removing dead voters from its roll by referring to the lack of records of deaths from JPN’s rolls-though in 1 news report SPR claimed that they get an update of citizen’s registration from JPN every 3 months! So: what happen to the SPR’s roll this time?
Actually the roll used in these 3 by-elections are updated to Sept 2008 only-showing a slowness in updating the voters who are eligible for voting in these 3 by-elections. Why? In the past SPR cannot even wait for gazzetting to use newly updated rolls for the Kuala Terengganu by-election!
SPR’s notorious voters rolls need cleaning!
Full details of the dead voters will be revealed in a Mafrel press conference soon. Watch out!
