Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli berkata, kesediaan Timbalan Pengerusi SPR, Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar bertemu dengan mana-mana pihak termasuk jawatankuasa #siasatPRU13 adalah suatu yang lucu.
“Saya agak lucu apabila tiba-tiba Datuk Wan Ahmad beriya-iya nak jumpa dengan saya dan wakil-wakil dari Pakatan Rakyat (PR) untuk berbincang,” katanya.
Rafizi mendakwa, pimpinan PR mengadakan perbincangan bersama SPR berkali-kali tetapi tiada perubahan dilakukan sehingga PRU-13 berakhir.
“Dulu dia kata dakwat kekal boleh kekal, bila tak kekal sebab tak goncang, bila dah goncang tapi masih tak kekal dia cakap kalau kekal tak boleh solat.
“Dia ada lima versi yang berbeza untuk setiap satu penyelewengan yang kita sudah tunjukkan bukti.
“Dulu dia kata tak ada satu pun ‘blackout’ di Malaysia ini, bila tunjukkan laporan polis semalam, dia kata tak apalah nanti kita bincang,” sindirnya.
Beliau yang juga Ahli Parlimen Pandan berkata demikian dalam satu sidang media di Ibu Pejabat PKR di sini hari ini.
“Saya sendiri hanya bersetuju berjumpa dengan beliau (Wan Ahmad) dalam satu forum rakyat yang mana beliau (Wan Ahmad) mengambil dan menerima soalan daripada rakyat.
“Terutama mereka yang melalui sendiri pelbagai penyelewengan ini dan kami akan kumpulkan dalam satu forum, biar dia (Wan Ahmad), saya, Datuk Johari Abdul, YB Fuziah duduk, biar rakyat tanya dan dia jawab, itu lebih baik,” ujarnya.-selangorku
Pegawai SPR Kira Undi Awal “Secara Senyap”...
Pakatan Rakyat hari ini mendedahkan lagi bukti bahawa terdapat keraguan dalam proses pengundian awal yang boleh memesongkan keputusan pilihanraya ke-13.
Bukti tersebut di dalam dua laporan polis yang dibuat ejen calon PKR, kata pengarah strategi PKR Rafizi Ramli.
Laporan pertama dibuat di Melaka berkenaan pengundian awal di DUN Machap, manakala yang kedua dibuat di Perak berhubung pengundian pos di DUN Pengkalan Hulu.
Dalam laporan polis pertama ejen calon PKR Dun Machap, Abu Hussin Tamby mendakwa melihat pegawai Suruhanhjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) membuka dan mengira kertas undi dari peti undi awal yang disimpan di Ibupejabat Daerah Polis Alor Gajah.
Insiden berkenaan terjadi apabila Abu Hussin sedang mengiringi pegawai SPR yang membawa peti undi awal untuk disimpan di dalam balai polis berkenaan.
“Saya melihat sejumlah anggota SPR yang dianggarkan seramai tujuh hingga lapan orang sedang duduk mengira kertas-kertas undi di sebelah lokap tempat peti undi awal kami disimpan.
“Selepas selesai mengiringi untuk menimpan peti undi awal di dalam lokap, saya sempat lagi melihat petugas-petugas yang memakai baju SPR sedang mengira kertas undi,” katanya dalam laporan polis berkenaan.
Dilaporkan sebelum ini bahawa undi awal dan undi pos hanya akan dikira pada hari buang undi iaitu 5 Mei. Manakala undi awal dan undi pos dibuat lima hari sebelum tarikh itu.
Sementara dalam kejadian kedua, ejen calon PKR Dun Pengkalan Hulu, Jauneh Otoh membuat laporan polis ekoran kehilangan peti undi awal bagi Kem 18 Pasukan Gerakan Awam (PGA) di Pengkalan Hulu yang tidak sampai seperti yang dijadualkan.
Kejadian meragukan itu mengakibatkan ejen-ejen PKR menuntut supaya peti undi tersebut dkecualikan daripada pengiraan undi dan dipersetujui oleh pegawai SPR.
PKR turut dimaklumkan, Ketua Pemerintah Kem 18 PGA Pengkalan Hulu membuat laporan polis pada 9 Mei 2013 di Balai Polis Pengkalan Hulu dan mendakwa peti undi yang hilang telah dijumpai.
Jelas Rafizi, dua kejadian benar yang berlaku ini membayangkan betapa longgarnya kawalan, integriti dan seliaan peti undi awal sehingga boleh hilang dan dibuka begitu sahaja.
“Keputusan undi pos dan undi awal di seluruh negara menimbulkan kecurigaan apabila-calon-calon Pakatan Rakyat mendapat undi sekitar 10 hingga 15 peratus daripadanya.
“Ianya jauh lebih rendah dari tahap sokongan dalam PRU-12 pada sekitar purata 30 peratus,” tambah Rafizi.- selangorku
“He should focus on addressing the electoral fraud that happened during the general election such as the indelible ink fiasco and the blackouts. Leave political statements to people like Home Minister, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi,” said Rafizi at a press conference today.
Also present were PKR vice president Fuziah Salleh and Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul.
Yesterday, Wan Ahmad challenged PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim to boycott Parliament if he was disputing the general election results.
Several analysts have also called upon Anwar to stop the Black 505 rallies and focus his energy on strengthening the opposition and contribute to nation building.
Hurling brickbats at Wan Ahmad, Rafizi said that the EC official’s statements against Pakatan Rakyat only showed that the former was not impartial in his conduct.
“It is not his place to ask Anwar to boycott Parliament. Wan Ahmad can’t even get proper indelible ink but now he wants to meddle in parliamentary affairs,” said the Pandan MP.
On the academics’ statement, Rafizi urged them to attend the rallies to see how people are upset over the electoral fraud allegation.
“Get out of your offices and come to the rallies attended by the 51% who voted for Pakatan. If you are against it, you are part of the 47% minority,” he said.
Rafizi added that there can be no talk of nation building when the government in place was elected using fraudulent methods.
“We cannot continue in a situation where the majority questions the legitimacy of the current government. They want a solution to the electoral irregularities,” he said.
Bringing Malaysians closer
The PKR leader also said that the rallies have brought another positive outcome; bringing Malaysians together irrespective of race and religion.
Rafizi added that Malaysians felt a sense of belonging and togetherness like never before in the rallies, which had also helped fire up the mood for change.
“And I dare say that we are more successful in bringing Malaysians together compared to the 1Malaysia songs the government airs daily,” he said.
On the same note, Johari accused Wan Ahmad of being “more Umno than Umno itself.”
“I remember back in my student days in Universiti Malaya, a student forged his certificates to gain entry into the varsity.
“The university only found out about it after three years. Despite being a good student, he was expelled from the varsity.
“Similarly, we have a government which is elected into power through fraud. How is the EC going to address this?” he asked.
On the academics, Johari, who is also the organiser of the Black 505 rallies, said: “If they want us to stop, give us equal access in the media to air our grouses.”-fmt
Why were the EC officers counting the ballots days earlier...
PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli produces two police reports which claimed that the advance and postal ballots may have been compromised.PKR today produced more police reports on the alleged electoral fraud that happened during the recent general election.
This time, PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli cast doubts on how the postal and advance voting system were conducted.
Speaking at a press conference held at the party headquarters, Rafizi produced two police reports filed by PKR agents for discrepancies that occurred at the Alor Gajah and Grik parliamentary seats.
In the police report lodged for the Alor Gajah seat, Rafizi said that PKR agent Abu Hussin Tamby alleged that on April 30 he found several Election Commission (EC) agents counting advance voting ballots at the Alor Gajah police headquarters.
Abu Hussin was said to have seen this happening when he was escorting several advance voting ballot boxes to the police headquarters, where the advance and postal ballots were kept for the said parliamentary seat.
“The election laws clearly say that the ballots should only be counted on the polling day, which was May 5. So why were the EC officers counting the ballots days earlier?” asked Rafizi.
On the report for the Grik parliamentary seat, PKR agent Shairi MD Tajuddin lodged a police report alleging that advance ballot boxes from the Pengkalan Hulu army camp (PGA Batallion 18) did not arrive at 5pm, as promised by EC officials.
“Shairi waited till 7pm but the ballot boxes still did not arrive. So he immediately lodged a police report saying that the ballots may have been compromised.
“The EC officer in charge also supported his police report and disqualified the ballots when it arrived for the final tally.
“Although the ballots were disqualified, it shows how dubious and cartoonish the whole electoral process was being conducted,” said Rafizi.
More power for EC to help BN?
The newly minted Pandan MP also said that he doubted that Pakatan Rakyat only managed to garner up 15% votes from the advance and postal votes – the opposition’s record low.
This time around, there were about 500,000 voters who cast their ballots via post or advance voting.
Rafizi said with all the allegations of irregularities, the integrity of this half a million voters could be questioned.
“Before this, we could get at least 30% support from postal votes. Even for my seat, only eight votes out of 126 advance ballots were cast in my favour. It does not make sense,” said Rafizi.
On a related matter, Rafizi questioned the EC’s rationale in seeking more powers from the Parliament to remove names from the electoral roll, should they be registered under dubious addresses.
“I dare say that in light of Pakatan winning with between 20,000 to 30,000 majority votes in certain areas, the EC is afraid that the urban voters may want to change their addresses and vote in their hometowns instead.
“If that happens, that will be the end of Barisan Nasional as in many areas we lost with narrow margins,” he said.
Two days ago, EC deputy chairman Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said that the electoral body was planning to seek power to “remove” voters who do not live at the address stated, and update the registration in accordance with the address listed in their MyKad.
More rallies planned
Meanwhile, PKR MP Johari Abdul, who is also the main organiser of the Black 505 rallies, repeated the demand that the entire EC top officials resign for failing to ensure free and fair 13th general election.
He also said that the new EC officials should be selected by a joint committee, participated by both Barisan Nasional and Pakatan representatives.
“Pending the appointment of the new EC officials, the government must stop all re-delineation exercise or any amendments to the electoral laws.
“We also demand by-elections at the 30 parliamentary seats that the results are disputed,” he said.
Johari announced that the next Black 505 rally would be held in Perlis (June 10), followed by Kedah (June 11), Kelantan (June 12) and Johor (June 14).-fmt
PKR reveals allegation of fraud in advance voting...
PKR today revealed two police reports that were lodged regarding alleged fraud that had happened during the advance voting process for the 13th general election.
Party director of strategy Rafizi Ramli (left) said that one of the police reports lodged was regarding an incident which took place in Malacca, where an Election Commission (EC) officer allegedly counted ballot papers before the actual counting time.
The second police report was regarding a ballot box that allegedly arrived late to a counting centre in Gerik, Perak, for counting, thus causing the ballots from the particular box to be rejected by officials.
"There are doubtful circumstances in advance voting when not even eight percent from all election results favoured Pakatan," he said during a press conference at PKR headquarters today.
"So in a situation where we had 250,000 advance voters, today we are raising our misgivings about such things.”
In the Malacca incident, PKR's counting agent Abu Hussin Tamby alleged to have seen about seven to eight individuals donning EC uniforms counting the ballots in a police lock-up.
According to the report, which was lodged on May 2, the ballot box for early voting was brought from the early voting centre at the Lubok China police station to the lock-up at the Alor Gajah police district headquarters on April 30.
This is despite the EC setting rules that the advance voting ballots be counted on the election day on May 5.
"After accompanying officers to keep the ballot boxes in the lock-up, I managed to witness officers in EC uniforms counting the ballot papers," Abu Hussin, 42, said in his police report.
In the incident that took place in Gerik, meanwhile, another PKR counting agent Shairi Md Tajuddin alleged in his report that a postal ballot bag from a polling centre in Pengkalan Hulu did not arrive at the counting centre by the stipulated time on May 5.
He blamed the delay on the EC, which had resulted in the postal ballot bag being rejected, said Shahiri, 48, in his May 15 report.
"I believe this is an offence that was committed on purpose by the EC for the purpose of fraud in ensuring a win for Umno and BN in the Gerik parliamentary seat and the Pengkalan Hulu state seat," he said in his report.-malaysiakini
