    EC identifies 18 local NGOs and Asean obervers for GE13

    • 5:22PM Nov 27, 2012

    The Election Commission (EC) has identified 18 local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as domestic observers, besides observers from Asean countries to monitor the upcoming 13th general election.

    Its deputy chairperson, Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, said the EC had met up with the NGOs from throughout the country to discuss the conditions for appointment and the monitoring framework.

    He said these NGOs were selected as they were independent organisations and not siding with any political party.

    “The EC has identified six NGOs from the peninsula, nine from Sarawak and three from Sabah for the task. The selection and appointment of the NGOs will be finalised next week. All the NGOs must abide by the conditions set and are also required to sign the ‘Aku Janji Kerja’ (I Promise to Work) pledge.

    “However, it is up to the NGOs to accept the conditions set or to reject the appointment offer,” he said when interviewed during the ‘Hello Malaysia’ programme broadcast live by BernamaTV in Kuala Lumpur last night.

    Wan Ahmad said the EC would brief the NGO representatives involved so that they would be responsible and understand the legal process of the general election in the interest of the nation’s future.

    “The EC will give flexibility to the local NGOs in monitoring the elections from the time Parliament is dissolved until the election results are announced and to make reports based on facts, and not based on assumptions, perception and hearsay.

    “If we find any of them violating the ‘Aku Janji’ conditions, campaigning for any party or interviewing voters, we will terminate the observer’s appointment,” he said.

    As for the observers from Asean countries, Wan Ahmad said the EC’s decision to invite them here as international observers was a reciprocal move and respecting the neighbouring countries’ invitation for Malaysia to observe and monitor their own general election.

    He said observers from countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma and the Philippines would be invited to monitor the Malaysian elections in a professional manner and understanding its election process and respecting its laws.

    He said the EC had last year sent its officer to Burma as part of a team of observers from Malaysia monitoring the general election in that country.

    Last Sunday, the local press quoted Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak as saying that Malaysia was prepared to bring observers from Asean countries to see that the 13th general election would be carried out based on the constitutional provisions, the country’s laws and that the validity of the voters’ decision could not be disputed.

    Wan Ahmad said: “The local observers will be the main choice as our own citizens have the right to observe, monitor and report, as well as to hold a press conference to inform the public what they have observed during the upcoming 13th general election.

    “It is not out of the ordinary to invite observers from Asean countries, but if we invite foreign governments to monitor our election process, it is as though we are allowing them to encroach on our sovereignty.”

    ‘Not appropriate to invite foreign government’

    On the EC’s stand on opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim asking the Australian government to monitor Malaysia’s general election, he said: “Our stand is clear. It is not appropriate at all for us to invite a foreign government to interfere in our process of determining who should be the ruling government of our country. This is because it is not the first time that Malaysia is holding the elections and it is not a newly independent country.”

    Wan Ahmad said the process of choosing the ruling government for Malaysia was the absolute right of its citizens as it involved national sovereignty.

    “The motive of the opposition leader (Anwar) is to draw sympathy from their (opposition) supporters and the Malaysian public, especially the fence-sitters and people outside the country, to their portraying themselves as the underdogs. This is a well-planned agenda.”

    He said Anwar’s second motive was to gain international attention and sympathy so that there would be pressure, one after another, on Malaysia.

    “If the Australian government accepts the (Anwar’s) offer, surely it will officially write to the Malaysian government and the EC,” he said.

    He stressed that inviting foreign governments to monitor the elections was not the same as the EC inviting observers from Asean countries for the task.

    On postal voting for media personnel, he said the EC would upload Borang 1 (Form 1) onto its website so that they could register as postal voters before the upcoming elections.

    He said media personnel could be categorised as postal voters under Article 3(1)(f) of the General Election Regulations (Postal Voting) 2003 on the condition that they first had to register as voters.

    However, he added, the media personnel had to apply to their superiors/managers to register as postal voters so that they could be gazetted as postal voters.

    “The media personnel also cannot change their status to ordinary voters as it (status) will only be valid for one general election,” he said.

    Wan Ahmad also conveyed the EC’s reminder for Malaysians to trust the EC as a body that is transparent, independent and that has a huge responsibility to the constitution and people, and not to simply hurl accusations and make slanderous claims against it.

    'EC guidelines will muzzle election observers'

    Guidelines on election observers set by the Election Commission (EC), including banning them from speaking to the media without the commission's consent, will prevent the watchdogs from performing their duties, warned Pakatan Rakyat.

    PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution (left) said the Pakatan secretariat had called a meeting today to look into the guidelines, and has decided to raise its objections with the EC.

    Saifuddin noted that the guidelines ban election observers from observing the ballot counting process, recording “electoral fraud” without EC officials' consent, and speaking to the media.

    These also prohibit observers from revealing information to any third party without the commission's consent, communicating with polling and counting agents and EC staff, as well as from being present at the polling centres.

    “Apart from that, the EC only allows a maximum of three observers in a parliamentary constituency,” Saifuddin told reporters at PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya today.

    The Machang MP described the guidelines as a set of unfair restrictions on the six election monitoring groups.

    “This reflects that the EC has no plan to conduct a transparent and fair general election,” he said, adding that Pakatan will request the EC to amend the conditions.

    Pakatan to monitor ‘hot seats’

    According to Saifuddin, the six groups appointed by the EC as official election observers in the peninsula are Transparency International-Malaysia, pollster Merdeka Centre, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs, Centre for Public Policy Studies, the Malaysian Youth Council and Society for the Promotion of Human Rights (Proham).

    Proham and election monitoring NGO National Institute for Democracy and Electoral Integrity have already rejected the offer.

    Apart from the Malaysian Youth Council, the other four groups are still negotiating with the EC over the restrictions.

    Saifuddin also disclosed that Pakatan will carry out intensive monitoring of 'hot seats'.

    These are the constituencies contested by top Pakatan leaders, constituencies with a sharp spike in voter numbers, constituencies which had seen vote-buying and chaos in previous elections, and those in which the majority of votes in the last polls was below three percent of the total votes cast.

    “ ... if there is no regulating and monitoring (of) these constituencies, there could be vote-rigging, which would affect the electoral results," he said.

    Pakatan will discuss in detail as to how to deal with these 'hot seats' at its next meeting, he added.

    Wan Ahmad denies EC curbing observers for GE13

    • 11:53AM Jan 3, 2013

    The Election Commission (EC) yesterday denied alleged claims by PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution that the EC would bar observers from overseeing the vote-counting process during the general election.

    EC deputy chairperson Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said such claims were lies fabricated to confuse the people.

    Wan Ahmad said the accusation by Saifuddin was baseless and urged the PKR secretary-general to come forward and seek clarification from the EC.

    “His (Saifuddin) claims are not correct and I view it as an attempt to confuse the rakyat. The details and information are not correct,” he told Bernama after appearing on Hello Malaysia, programme aired by BernamaTV in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

    He said the EC’s guidelines for independent observers during the 13th general election is to ensure the election was carried out smoothly without any problems.

    Wan Ahmad said observers would not be allowed to speak to any agents of a party and EC workers at the voting stations to avoid any disruption to their respective work and not allowed to speak to the media so that there would be no manipulation of the facts by irresponsible people.

    “They (observers) will be appointed according to the law and under oath. They will not be allowed to communicate with anyone before submitting their observation report to the EC.

    “It will not be logical to allow observers to interview EC staff... do not speak if there are not enough facts or details. I challenge Saifuddin to seek clarification from the EC,” he said.

    Saifuddin during a press conference was alleged to have questioned the rationale behind EC’s guidelines for observers, claiming such conditions were not reasonable.

    Wan Ahmad added that the EC had accredited five non governmental organisations to become observers, namely Merdeka Centre, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas), Persatuan Promosi Hak Asasi Manusia (Proham), Transparency International, Centre for Public Policy (CPPS) and Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM).

    However, their duties will only come into force once the Parliament was dissolved.

    ‘Unethical’ for poll monitors to complain to PKR, says EC

    By Nomy Nozwir
    January 05, 2013
    KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 5 — The Election Commission (EC) called it “unethical” for independent observers to complain to PKR, saying today that the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) appointed to monitor Election 2013 have to be impartial and independent of political parties.

    EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar also denied PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail’s claims that the commission was restricting said observers from monitoring the polls freely.

    “I have said in many statements before this, why these NGOs need to complain to PKR which is a political party?

    “If these NGOs truly want to be (polls) observers, they have to be independent of any political parties,” Wan Ahmad (picture) said when contacted by The Malaysian Insider.

    Wan Ahmad said the EC had met with all NGOs that wanted to observe this year’s elections, and that being “impartial” was a main requirement.

    “The basis of the appointment of these NGOS is impartial, that is the main condition.”

    “But I am very sad, if these NGOS go and complain to PKR, this is unethical.

    “This (Datuk) Saifuddin Nasution (Ismail) is good with words, it shouldn’t be like this,” Wan Ahmad said.

    Last Wednesday, Saifuddin accused the EC of imposing guidelines that restrict six polls observers from monitoring the entire polls process fairly.

    “This task of observing is very critical especially for areas that Pakatan Rakyat defines as hot seats,” Saifuddin said in a press conference after a PR secretariat meeting at the PKR headquarters.

    “We discussed in detail about the restrictions...(and) it does not reflect the EC’s readiness to carry out a fair general elections, and if not, how can there be a fair GE.”

    The six NGOs that have been accredited by the EC are the Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M), Merdeka Center, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS), Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS), Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM), and Persatuan Promosi Hak Asasi Manusia (Proham).

    A day after Saifuddin’s press conference, Wan Ahmad explained that observers are not allowed to speak with any party agents and EC workers at the polling centre to prevent their work from being disrupted.

    He also said that observers are not allowed to speak to the media to prevent possible irresponsible manipulation of their statements.

    “They (observers) will be appointed according to the law and under oath. They will not be allowed to communicate with anyone before submitting their observation report to the EC.

    “It will not be logical to allow observers to interview EC not speak if there are not enough facts or details. I challenge Saifuddin to seek clarification from EC,” Wan Ahmad was quoted saying by national news agency Bernama.

    Today, Wan Ahmad reportedly said that the observers should have expressed their unhappiness with any of the conditions directly to the EC.

    “The NGOs can be perceived as a political informer. This is clearly a breach of confidentiality that each of the NGOs involved is aware of. The EC had impressed on them many times that the discussions were confidential.

    “They are being unethical. We also want to find out who among them is the one with a ‘big mouth’,” Wan Ahmad said in a report by The Star.

    He also refuted Saifuddin’s claims that the independent observers will not be allowed to monitor the vote count, saying that they will be permitted to watch.

    “Ballot counting is an important election process. How can we not allow them to observe this? But we cannot allow too many of them because of space.

    “Agents of candidates will also be present to closely monitor this.

    “I do not know whether the NGOs involved do not understand us or that the political party has twisted the issue,” he said.

    Third NGO rejects EC invite as GE13 observer

    2:03PM Jan 7, 2013

    The Election Commission's (EC) efforts to form a local election observer team was dealt yet another blow after yet another reputable organisation pulled out from the scheme.

    In a press statement today, Transparency International-Malaysia (TI-M) said it will decline the EC's invitation to be a election observer on grounds that it cannot agree with its terms of referencefor observers.

    TI-M is the third group to decline the invitation after The Society for the Promotion of Human Rights (Proham) and election monitoring NGO National Institute for Democracy and Electoral Integrity (NIEI).

    TI-M secretary-general Josie M Fernandez (right) said the EC was informed of the decision on Jan 4.

    She said TI-M had urged the commission to ensure that all rules imposed on accredited observers, as well as the process of accrediting the observers, comply with international standards and norms.

    “TI-M expressed reservations (during meetings) on some of the terms of reference set by the EC on domestic election observers,” she said.

    However, she did not elaborate on the reservations as TI-M had agreed to be bound by confidentiality in order to promote free and frank discussions with the EC.

    Invite Mafrel too

    TI-M also suggested that the EC engage other groups such as Malaysians for Free and Fair Elections (Mafrel), should have a role in election observation work due to their "experience and credibility with the public".

    Despite rejecting the invitation, TI-M said it would be willing to engage with the EC in the future on election law reform.

    "TI-M further calls on the EC to ensure that the whole process of election observation adheres to international standards and norms, in order to restore the credibility of the election process in the eyes of the Malaysian public and the international community," said Fernandez.

    Critics have claimed that the stifling rules imposed on election observers - such as a gag order preventing observers from addressing the press - were not in line with international standards.

    Others claim that the EC was manipulating civil society groups to legitimise its conduct of the elections.

    For example, NIEI - which has observed elections across Asia - noted that there was no legal framework for election observers and the EC were drawing up rules on an ad hoc basis, unlike other countries such as Bangladesh.

    Other think-tanks invited by the EC are Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas), Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) and independent pollster Merdeka Centre. A recent addition to the list is Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM).

    Flak for TI-M as it opts out as GE13 observer

    8:09AM Jan 8, 2013

    The Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas) has criticised Transparency International-Malaysia (TI-M) for abruptly rejecting the Election Commission's invitation to be an election observer.

    Ideas chief executive officer Wan Saiful Wan Jan (left) said this may cause the remaining groups in the observer mission to be viewed with suspicion.

    "I am worried that, by withdrawing at this last minute and without discussing the bigger picture with other organisations involved ... TI-M is inadvertently and unintentionally helping those who are bent on painting the wrong picture on the election observation mission and the organisations involved in it," he said in a statement yesterday.

    Wan Saiful said Ideas, which is a member of the mission, had been in lengthy related discussions with TI-M up to last Thursday, and was shocked at its abrupt decision the next day that it would not accept the invitation.

    TI-M yesterdaysaid it had informed the EC on Jan 4 that it would not be part of the observer mission, hinting at dissatisfaction with the restrictive terms of reference to be imposed.

    Third group to pull out

    However, Wan Saiful said all the election observer organisations had expressed the same view during a meeting with the EC on Dec 13 last year, and that the TI-M should have been more firm in speaking up at the time.

    "Indeed there are issues that we agreed to disagree with the EC, and the EC also agreed to disagree with us," he said.

    "If TI-M had such strong reservations, why did they not put a strong argument to the EC when we were sitting face to face with them?"

    TI-M is the third group to decline the invitation after the Society for the Promotion of Human Rights and election monitoring NGO National Institute for Democracy and Electoral Integrity pulled out from the mission.

    Apart from Ideas, other think-tanks that have been invited by the EC are the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute, independent pollster Merdeka Centre and Majlis Belia Malaysia (Malaysian Youth Council).

    It's clear the SPR will cheat any old way they can. So far, they are trying their best to fight a controlled retreat through obsfucating, lying and delaying tactics.

    EC tells NGO domestic observers to obey general election conditions

    February 01, 2013
    PUTRAJAYA, Feb 1 — All the 16 non-government organisations appointed as domestic observers for the upcoming 13th general election must obey the conditions set by the Election Commission (EC), said its chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof.

    The EC has appointed five NGOs from Peninsular Malaysia, eight and three from Sarawak and Sabah respectively, to observe the general election process, Abdul Aziz (picture) said.

    “It is a historic day today, as the EC has appointed domestic observers for the first time. This proves that there’s nothing to hide in the general election process.

    “The appointed NGOs must ensure that all their representatives obey the pledge while on duty. The EC will monitor them to ensure the general election goes smoothly,” he said after presenting the letters of appointment to the five NGOs from Peninsular Malaysia here yesterday.

    Abdul Aziz said the pledge’s main condition was that the observers should not campaign or try to garner votes, disobey EC officers and police directions, or try to disturb or interview voters in the voting centres.
    (Admin: Cannot report to the public or the media.)

    The five peninsula NGOs are the Malaysian Youth Council, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS), Centre for Public and Policy Studies (CPPS), Merdeka Center and Malaysian Federation of Disabled Persons Associations.

    In Sarawak, they are Persatuan Belia Islam Nasional Sarawak, Persatuan Kebangsaan Melayu Sarawak, Persatuan Kebangsaan Orang Ulu Sarawak (OUNA), Persatuan Kebangsaan Dayak Bidayuh (DBNA), Sibu Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Persatuan Melanau Sibu, Persatuan Cina Miri and Federation of Orang Ulu Association Malaysia, whose appointment letters will be presented on February 5 in Kuching.

    Persatuan Sejarah Malaysia Cawangan Sabah, Persatuan Belia Sabah and Persatuan Gabungan Cina Sabah will receive their appointments in Kota Kinabalu on February 6.

    “The conditions are to ensure the general election is conducted smoothly, and not meant to constraint the observers. (Admin: What they say is exactly the opposite of what they intent. It's pathological. They can't help it.)
    “The appointed NGOs are most welcome to communicate with the EC (through the 13th general election Observers Special Unit Call Centre) on any matters or questions pertaining to the observers’ role,” Abdul Aziz said. — Bernama

    Pelantikan pemerhati tempatan untuk memerhati perjalanan Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 adalah satu daripada beberapa penambahbaikan yang akan dilaksanakan SPR untuk meningkat keyakinan awam terhadap pelaksanaan proses demokrasi di negara ini.

Semua aktiviti dan proses yang dijalankan, dari tarikh pembubaran Parlimen sehingga keputusan diisytiharkan, dijalankan secara telus mengikut undang-undang, peraturan-peraturan dan tatacara kerja yang ditetapkan. Pelantikan pemerhati ini jelas membuktikan bahawa SPR telus dan tiada apa yang hendak disembunyikan.

    Pemerhatian pilihanraya ini akan dijalankan oleh NGO-NGO yang dipilih dan dilantik oleh SPR. Pemilihan NGO ini dibuat berdasarkan kriteria dan syarat-syarat berikut:

    a. NGO yang berdaftar;
