    Spr: Pakatan reveals how EC conducts "massive fraud"

    Pakatan reveals how EC conducts 'massive fraud'

    Hazlan Zakaria 12:36PM Mar 22, 2012

    The de facto leader of PKR today exposed opposition claims of how the Election Commission (EC) was conducting “massive fraud” in manipulating the voters roll.

    “I shall prove it and give a specific example,” assured Anwar Ibrahim (right) at a press conference in parliament lobby.

    He then furnished reporters with a printout of an EC voter search to show how a voter with his name and IC numbers already registered in Pulai Johor was re-registered as a new voter in Pekan, Pahang.

    “This is how they do it. If they had entered the same data, the computer will reject it. So they added a slash (/) after the IC numbers in the new registration,” he alleged, holding up the printout.

    The additional character, he explained, made it appear to the computer that this was a new and different record, despite the voter being the same person.

    This, he claimed, is how the EC in collusion with Umno registers a voter multiple times in many constituencies to weigh the electoral dice in their favour.

    Isn't this an issue of lack of public confidence in the EC and also a reaction to their lack of transparency and engagement with all stake-holders?

    The EC will do well with a huge dose of humility.

    Questions: How did the postal voter apply to be transferred from the Principal Electoral Roll to the Poster Voter Roll? Did she apply for it or was she transferred without her consent?


    EC clarifies alleged fraud

    PETALING JAYA (March 22, 2012): The Election Commission (EC) clarified today that a "slash" at the end of identity card (IC) numbers in the electoral roll indicated existing voters had applied for different voting status.

    "Those whose IC numbers have a slash after them are existing voters who registered with the commission to be postal voters or advance voters," said EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof when contacted by theSun.

    "Applications are handled in quarterly reviews, and sometimes, depending on whether there are objections, an application could take up to seven months.

    "Therefore, we put a slash after the applicant's IC number to indicate his or her application for a different status which is pending approval," he explained.

    Abdul Aziz was responding to allegations by opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that the EC was committing "massive fraud" by placing a "slash" symbol at the end of IC numbers to increase the number of voters in certain constituencies.

    Anwar used the example of Zarina Abu Tausi, who was registered as a voter in Pulai, Johor but re-registered herself as a new voter in Pekan.

    "How is this possible? It is because there is a "slash" symbol at the end of her IC number? So the computer cannot detect the same IC number because of an additional character," Anwar claimed at a press conference in Parliament earlier today.

    However, Abdul Aziz said Zarina had re-registered as a postal voter as she is the wife of an army official.

    "Zarina is the wife of a soldier, and under the law, she is allowed to register as a postal voter and so she has applied, but it has not been approved yet.

    "That is why there is a slash after her IC number in the electoral roll," he explained.

    "EC has never, in all our work, manipulated figures in the electoral roll. Whatever we do is always in accordance with the law," Abdul Aziz said.

    At the press conference, Anwar also urged the government to allow Pakatan Rakyat to conduct an independent audit on the electoral roll in view of a sudden surge of new voters in certain constituencies.

    ‘EC ignorant of its own procedures’

    Tarani Palani
    | March 23, 2012
    The Election Commission seems to be tripping over itself trying to explain its absentee voter procedure, says PKR.


    PETALING JAYA: PKR vice-president Fuziah Salleh kept up her salvo against the Election Commission (EC) and the electoral roll’s integrity, refuting the EC’s explanation over the case of registration of absentee voters.

    Fuziah today hit out at the EC’s ignorance of its own procedures.

    She was refering to the EC’s explanation of the case of Zarina binti Abu Tausi (IC number 811001015036) who was a voter in Pulai but who now appears as a new voter in Pekan.

    She said that in order to be registered as an absentee voter, the EC must first display the name of the said voters to be deleted from the ordinary voter’s list while simultaneously displaying their names on the absentee voter list.

    In Zarina’s case, her application to change her voting constituency is not registered under the “new voters” application.

    Fuziah had raised the issue yesterday, alleging that the EC was manipulating the voter roll by converting existing “ordinary voters” into “postal voters” and moving them to specific constituency.

    She said the new voters were already registered elsewhere with the same identity card numbers but the “slash” (/) character had been added to the numbers to trick the data entry system.

    Responding to her allegations, an EC officer had reportedly told Malaysiakini that it was simply a case of an ordinary voter applying to be an absentee voter.
    “Zarina was previously on the master roll as an ordinary voter but had applied to be an absentee voter on Dec 20, 2011, as her husband is serving in the military,” the EC officer said.

    According to the EC officer, the “slash” character was not used to register the same voter twice but rather to differentiate the same voter from their old and new identity card numbers.

    ‘Questionable database’

    But Fuziah said today that in the case of Zarina and others, their names were not displayed to be deleted from the ordinary voters’ list.

    “The officer should also have the knowledge that the normal procedure for EC in the case of registered voters who are applying to be absentee voters, will be, first, to display the name to be deleted from the normal voter list and, at the same time, to display the applicant’s name in the new registration for the absentee voter.

    “Both deletion and the new registration must be displayed at the same time in the additional electoral roll on display at the end of every quarter.

    “This action is part of the audit trail in ensuring the integrity of the electoral roll,” she said.

    Fuziah repeated her allegation that this was the technique used to achieve an alternative voter roll.

    She also added that in the last quarter alone there were 1,689 similar cases as Zarina’s who were existing voters but still registered under “new voters”.

    “This kind of manipulation on the electoral roll can only point to the fact that the database is questionable, totally flawed and has lost its credibility.

    “The procedure is open to abuse and the possibility of the presence of a system B is highly probable.”

    Fuziah, the Kuantan MP, said that there needs to be an inquiry into the matter and repeated her call for the top-brass EC leaders to resign, should they fail to rectify the situation.

    “An audit into the procedure and the system of the electoral roll must be allowed to take place. The chairman and deputy chairman of EC must answer to the citizens of Malaysia or be prepared to resign”.

    It's only human error. Please don't tell the press.

    EC on irregularities: It’s just ‘human error’

    Tarani Palani March 26, 2012
    The Election Commission today urged all parties who have an issue with the voters list to approach them directly instead of highlighting the matter in the press.
    PETALING JAYA: The Election Commission (EC) has attributed some of the irregularities in the voters’ roll to “human error”.

    EC deputy chairman Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said that temporary staff who were recruited to assist the EC with voter registration could have made some mistakes when registering new voters. Hence, the irregularities found in the list.

    “Our officers in charge will register based on what has been declared. They have thousands of forms to fill everyday. As we don’t do online registration, there may be human error,” he said.

    He added that the EC has been making progress in cleaning up the roll and highlighted the cases of dead people who have been removed.

    “We have 12.5 million voters; we are cleaning up the roll everyday.

    “For now we have managed to rectify those who are dead, but there are some still on the list because their kin have yet to inform us that they are dead,” he said.

    He was responding to some cases where the birthday and the new MyKad number of the person do not correspond.


    Just today, FMT stumbled upon one such case where the person was born on Oct 23, 1955 but has the MyKad number registered as 600128125531.

    Wan Ahmad, however, said that the blooper would not impede the voter from exercising his or her voting rights.

    “When they come to vote, we don’t see if their birthdays don’t match with their MyKad numbers; we look at the MyKad number.

    “As long as the MyKad number is attributed to the right person, then it will not hinder them from voting,” he said.

    Two names, one MyKad number

    Meanwhile, FMT received an e-mail pointing out that changes were made to the voters’ list within the space of three days.

    Voters Mohideen Ahmed and Alinjinin Bin Louis@Hazwan B Abdullah who shared the same MyKad number (600128125531) are registered under the Keningau parliamentary constituency in Sabah.

    On March 23, the MyKad number was stated as belonging to Mohideen in the EC website. Three days later, Alinjinin was stated as the voter registered under this MyKad number.
    A quick check with the National Registration Department (NRD) revealed that the MyKad number belongs to Alinjinin.

    Asked to comment on the mater, Wan Ahmad said that he could not comment as he needed to look into the details of the matter.

    He, however, did not rule out a technical glitch in this instance.

    A clearly irritated Wan Ahmad also did not rule out the possibility of the e-mail being fake.

    He urged all parties who have an issue with the voters’ list to approach the EC directly instead of confusing the public by highlighting the matter in the press.

    “These people make allegations without understanding the system but we can explain the irregularities as we have always followed our computing system,” he said.
