Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar today raised concern over a massive spike in the number of postal voters in her constituency, as the most recent electoral roll, released on Nov 2, shows.
Speaking at the Parliament lobby today, Nurul Izzah said the number of postal voters spiked by 1,363 percent in two months - from a mere 149 on Sept 26 this year to 2,180 on Nov 2.
Worse still, she said, checks with the Election Commission revealed that 457 of these postal voters are from the Kampung Bohol in Bukit Jalil, which is outside the Lembah Pantai constituency.
"There are 2,180 police personnel who are postal voters, and this does not include their wives. The winning majority for PKR in Lembah Pantai in the previous general election was 2,895 votes."
Nurul Izzah said that this finding had been confirmed by the EC, and was among thousands of other "doubtful" voters found in the electoral roll for Lembah Pantai.
A report has been lodged with the commission, with a copy forwarded to the parliamentary select committee on electoral reform.
Of the new postal voters who are police personnel, the MP also raised suspicion over 15 new postal voters registered to the Bangsar police station.
“Those who go there will know that it is just a small room, which is a tight squeeze even for two people,” she said.
Nurul Izzah said other “irregularities” include some 3,384 voters whose addresses are not listed in the roll, while 200 voters are registered under a single address in Bukit Kerinchi.
3,300 voters in demolished village
She also pointed out that 3,300 voters are registered to Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum, although the village has been demolished and residents moved to make way for the KL Eco City development.
“Surprisingly. there was an increase of voters from 3,204 to 3,300, a hike of 96 names when Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum no longer exists in the Lembah Pantai map,” she said.
The EC last month admitted that a whopping 40,000 names on the electoral roll are “doubtful” and that it will publicly display these names so those listed can come forward to help clean up the roll.
senior citizen - From what I see this expose by YB NUrul is indeed shocking to the core. The BN/UMNO is saturated with corruption and stinks of crime of the worst kind. What is the point of having elections? It is an utter waste of time. May I call upon the bar council or any NGO or any respectable organisation to immediately go to the courts and secure an injuction against the PM and the Government from conducting elections till all the rot has been cleaned up for a free and fair elecions. May I call upon the UN Secretary General to step in and stop the elections till all the criminal actions that is a blatant violation against civic rights in obtaining a government of their choice.
