This is the basic training module developed by Antony Tong. Use this as a starting module.

PACABA1_Antony_basic97slides_py2_190213 (http://malaysians4change.com/PACABA/PACABA123Basic.BM/PACABA1_Antony_basic97slides_py2_190213.pptx) : Click to download

This is the Advanced Module

PACABA Advanced 157slides_190213.pptx (http://malaysians4change.com/PACABA/PACABA123Basic.BM/PACABA%20Advanced%20157slides_190213.pptx)

Trainers have to study the files and decide which is most appropriate for their locality. Then work with Tindak Malaysia's local trainers to organize role-play sessions for the participants. That is the most effective way for them to absorb the information. Focus on the paper flow process, Form filling and preparation of Surat Bantahan (Objection Letters). Complete the forms filling in the 1st part of the training through role-play. The later part can go into the principles and theory.

We will only have one version online - BM. This is to encourage everybody to use the BM version as you will be dealing with the KTM who will speaking mainly BM.

NEW BM version 16/04/13: 00 Handouts-BM_py12.sv4_31ms_160429.pdf

Thanks to Mary, Singam & Chun for tidying it up. Download from the attachments. There is no link for this file.

This is the Guide Book issued by the EC on what is a valid ballot paper and what is not. Refer to the Advance Module for detailed discussions on the principles on what to accept or reject. In general, reject any marking outside the box opposite the box for the candidate, as it does not indicate the intention of the voter in accordance with the DIRECTIONS of the COE Second Schedule. Other markings besides an "X" in the box can be taken to indicate the intention of the voter - eg. Tick, dot, circle, star, hash.

PACABA Undi Ragu (http://bit.ly/PACABAUndiRagu)

In principle, a counting agent should only accept a marking in the box opposite the candidate. Any marking outside the box can be rejected under the Second Schedule, notwithstanding COE R25( 8 and (10). The reason is that the SPR has cooked up a guide book that gives the KTM a lot of room to abuse his authority. How can any person imagine that he can fathom the intention of a voter just because a mark appears on the same row as the box but outside it?


New, 21st Mar 2013: Election Laws and Regulations in BM and English for downloading.

Federal Constitution: http://bit.ly/FederalConstitution

Before you come for class, please download the Handouts, print and bring to class -

Undi Ragu for printing 2 slides per A4 page.pdf (http://www.tindakmalaysia.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=707&d=1361243506) for Counting Agent

These 2 law guides should be printed for reference. We teach based on the election laws and you are expected to print and bind them for reference. You can use English or BM according to your choice.

NEW: Panduan SPR added May 2012

1. BUKU PANDUAN EJEN TEMPAT MENGUNDI.mei2012.pdf (Note that Clause 9 (1) is in conflict with Regulation 23 of the Conduct of Elections. R23 prevails: Only a voter holding a ballot paper at the end of polling (5pm) gets to vote. A voter still inside the polling station but not holding a ballot paper cannot vote.)
3. Translation for guidance only. Refer to the BM version as the official version - ADVANCE VOTING GUIDE.r3.0512.pdf
