Katanya, Abdul Aziz tidak boleh hanya melahirkan kekecewaan begitu sahaja sebaliknya beliau harus ada rasa tanggungjawab terhadap apa yang telah berlaku.
"Dia patut bertanggungjawab, disebabkan dakwat tidak kekal isu pengundian berganda timbul semula. Tidak cukup lahirkan rasa kecewa, kena ambil tindakan sepatutnya," kata beliau kepada Harakahdaily.
Hatta tidak menafikan untuk menyingkir pimpinan SPR kerana dakwat kekal ini tidak semudah itu, dan mereka harus mengambil tangungjawab sendiri dia atas kegagalannya dengan mengundur diri.
"Kekecewaan perlu dimanifestasikan dengan bentuk tindakan, bukan hanya pandai cakap kecewa sahaja. Paling bermoral adalah undur diri," katanya.
Menurut Hatta beliau dan beberapa pimpinan PAS pernah dijemput SPR untuk menguji ketahanan dakwat kekal yang kononya akan dilaksanakan dalam PRU 2008 yang lalu.
"Saya dimaklumkan ada tiga orang yang tahu berkenaan pembelian dakwat kekal, saya minta mereka mengaku dan ambil tindakan sepatutnya, " kata beliau.
Terkini, setelah dikecam hebat oleh sesetengah pihak yang tidak berpuas hati dengan penggunaan dakwat kekal, akhirnya Abdul Aziz tampil menyatakan kekecewaannya terhadap kegagalan pelaksanaan peraturan itu.-harakahdaily
EC chief finally admits ink fiasco...
"If people ask me now, what is the saddest thing in my life, I would answer: ‘Indelible ink'," he told Malay daily Sinar Harian in an exclusive interview published today.
However, he insisted that the issue of the indelible ink cannot be used to accuse the EC of allowing voters to vote more than once, or cheating in the general election.
Abdul Aziz (left) claimed that the method - recommended by the parliamentary select committee on electoral reforms last year to improve the electoral system - had been tested out for several times before it was implemented in the May 5 general election.
"However on the much-awaited day, the power of Allah is greater when the ink could disappear after being washed several times. Where is the mistake?
"It was certainly sad, but we did not keep quiet. We formed a special team led by (election commissioner) Christopher Wan Soo Kee and assisted by two other panel members, Md Yusop Mansor and Abdul Aziz Khalidin," he was quoted as saying by the daily.
'EC team to study all factors'
The team, he explained, will study all the factors surrounding the indelible ink including the recipe, the method of using, method of transport, method of storage, and whether the hot air in the lock-up where the ink was kept had an effect.
Abdul Aziz also revealed that he was recently told by a supplier of indelible ink from Canada that the ink used in Africa can only disappear when the skin is peeled off or when the nail is replaced by a new one.
Nevertheless, he reiterated that there had been no fraud in the general election, or else Pakatan Rakyat could not have kept Kelantan and retained Selangor and Penang with a higher majority.
"If the EC was really a cheater, the ruling parties would have won the states that they aspired. But it did not happen, right?" he asked.
Contray to his deputy Wan Ahmad Wan Omar who had questioned the authenticity of a photograph showing a blackout occurring at a polling station during vote-counting, Abdul Aziz conceded that a blackout had occurred at a polling center in the state constituency of Sri Serdang.
However, the fact that the seat was won by a PAS candidate, argued Abdul Aziz, has proven that the blackout was not planned to favour BN.-malaysiakini
