    Press Release no 22: Request to EC to conduct briefing on the 5 new Gazettes amending the Election Regulations

    Dear Friends of the Press,

    We shall appreciate it if you could publish this press release. It appears in 3 languages, BM, English and Mandarin.

    Since Jun 2011, the Election Commission has published 5 Gazettes amending the Election Regulations. The Press may have been drawn to the controversy regarding the recently withdrawn (on 8th May 2012) Amendment to the Election Offences Act DR042012E dated 19th Apr 2012. It was so blatant in its attempt to legislate electoral fraud that one could only hold one's breath in wonder at the audacity of the Election Commission and the BN Government. It has left a very bad taste in the mouth and torn to shreds what remnant of belief that one may have in the impartiality of the Election Commission.

    With respect to the 5 Gazettes, we notice some very troubling trends that can give rise to further fraud. However, in fairness to the Election Commission, we will withhold judgement and afford an opportunity to the Election Commission to explain to the public how it will be implemented. As such, we shall be grateful if you could give publicity to this call to the Election Commission to conduct a public briefing on the Gazettes so that the public can understand better the rationale behind the gazettes and how it will be applied during elections.

    Thank you very much for your support.

    Regards,

    Tan Sri Dato Seri Abdul Aziz bin Mohd Yusof, 10th May 2012
    The Chairman,
    Election Commission Putrajaya

    Dear Sir,

    SUBJECT: Briefing on Election Regulations and Amendments to the Election Offences Act.

    Tindak Malaysia is an electoral reform group dedicated to voter education and polling agent training.
    We invited Tan Sri the Tindak Malaysia Forum at the Petaling Jaya Civic Centre Auditorium on 24th Apr 2012 How Clean will the 13th General Elections Be? It was very well-attended with nearly 600 present. It was really unfortunate you could not be present due to unavoidable reasons. However the issues still remain and need to be discussed.

    As such, we hereby request the Election Commission to organize a briefing over two full days to explain to the public the implications and method of implementation of the 5 Regulations that were introduced since Jun 2011, which are:

    1 Gazette 2011 PU (A) 193 2011: Election laws amendment Jun 11 Forms 13- 16
    2 Gazette 2012 PU (A) 43 2012: Peraturan-Peraturan COE (Pindaan) 2012 - indelible ink
    3 EOA Amendment DR042012E: Barung Observer cancelled and removal of identity of campaign material publisher, (Withdrawn at Dewan Negara on 8th May 2012)
    4 Gazette PU (A) 106 Peraturan 2: Pilihan Raya (Pendaftaran Pemilih) (Pindaan) 30th Apr 2012
    5 Gazette PU (A) 113: Election (Conduct of Elections) (No.2) Regulations 30th Apr 2012
    6 Gazette PU (A) 114: Elections (Postal Voting) (amendment) Regulations 30th Apr 2012

    We request that it be conducted on a weekend by a Director of your Training Academy. It can be in BM or English or a mix of both. We will invite our trainers and our polling agent trainees to be present so that they can clarify first-hand their doubts on the procedures.

    We look forward to your favourable reply.

    Suggested date: Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May 2012 full day.
    Venue: To be provided by EC for your convenience.
    To make it more widely available outstation, we request that it be televised live so that more people can benefit.

    Tindak Malaysia is a civil society movement to promote Free and Fair Elections through voter education. Recently, together with the Bersih 2.0 Steering Committee, it submitted a list of proposed amendments to the electoral laws and regulations to the Parliamentary Select Committee.

    厘清五选举条例实施及影响
    监选组织促选委会办汇报会
    作者/本刊记者 2012年05月10日 04:56:05 pm

    【本刊记者撰述】监督选举组织行动马来西亚召集人黄炳耀致函选委会主席阿都阿兹,要求选委会举办为期两天的 汇报会,向公众讲解五项即将生效的选举条例,以便该组织的培训讲师及监票员能厘清多项疑问。

    黄炳耀(左图)今天将其致给选委会主席阿都阿兹(Abdul Aziz)的函件发给媒体,并在信中要求选举委员会的培训学院总监,在5月19日和5月20举行汇报会。汇 报会的媒介语可以是马来文或英文或两者兼用。届时,该组织将邀请培训讲师及监票员出席,让他们能直接厘清他 们对程序所存有的疑问。

    他在信函中称,行动马来西亚(Tindak Malaysia)是致力于选民教育和培训监票员的选举改革小组。他们曾邀请阿都阿兹出席行动马来西亚于2 012年4月24日在八打灵再也民事中心视听室举行的《行动大马论坛:全国第13届大选有多廉洁?》。将近 600人出席了那场论坛会。遗憾的是,基于不可避免的因素,阿都阿兹无法出席。然而,问题依然存在,它们也 需要进行讨论。

    五选举条例的落实及影响
    该组织要求选举委员在汇报会上,向公众讲解自2011年6月所推出的《选举犯罪法令》五项条例及一项修订的 实施及影响。当中包括:

    一、宪报2011 PU (A) 193 2011:选举法令修正案,6月11日,表格13至16(Gazette 2011 PU (A) 193 2011: Election laws amendment Jun 11 Forms 13- 16)
    二、宪报2012 PU (A) 43 2012:选举守则(修订)2012 不褪色墨水(Gazette 2012 PU (A) 43 2012: Peraturan-Peraturan COE (Pindaan) 2012 - indelible ink)
    三、EOA修订DR042012E:取消监察员(Barung Agent)及废除竞选材料出版商的身份(上议院于2012年5月8日撤回这项选举罪行法修正案)
    四、PU (A) 106宪报条规2:选举(选民登记)2012年4月30日(修订)(Gazette PU (A) 106 Peraturan 2: Pilihan Raya (Pendaftaran Pemilih) (Pindaan) 30th Apr 2012)
    五、PU (A) 113宪报:选举(选务)(No. 2)规章2012年4月30日(Gazette PU (A) 113: Election (Conduct of Elections) (No.2) Regulations 30th Apr 2012)
    六、PU (A) 114宪报:选举(邮寄投票)(修订)规例2012年4月30日(Gazette PU (A) 114: Elections (Postal Voting) (amendment) Regulations 30th Apr 2012)
    此外,他也说,为了让这场汇报会惠及更多外坡人民,他们要求当局将汇报会现况直播,让更多人受 益。

    行动马来西亚是以选民教育来促进自由和公平选举的公民社会运动。最近,行动大马联同Bersi h 2.0督导委员会,提交选举法律和法规修订建议清单给国会特别委员会(PSC)。马来西亚人民只要在https://sites.google.com/site/pacabatraining/登记,就可享有他们所提供的免费选民教育培训。
