EC cancels use of indelible ink

PUTRAJAYA: The Election Commission has cancelled the use of indelible ink in polling this Saturday, citing public order and security reasons.

Its chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman said following a meeting held Tuesday, the EC was obliged to make a firm and final decision to ensure the smooth conduct of the 12th general election.

He said provisions to the law needed if the ink was to be used still could not affect the constitutional right of a voter to cast his vote, even a person whose fingernail had been marked with indelible ink or one who refuses to have his or her fingernail marked this way.

“From a practical point of view, the issuance of a ballot paper to such a voter would render the EC’s proposal meaningless and will not bring about a positive result, whilst having the potential to create misunderstanding as well as altercations and arguments at polling stations,” he said.

The Federal Constitution gives you the right to vote, and a black mark on your fingernail should not bar you from exercising this right, he said.

Abdul Rashid said there were also reports made to the police confirming that certain irresponsible quarters had purchased indelible ink from abroad with the intention of creating confusion and suspicion as to the status of voters.

“The EC views these issues seriously as the election process and public order and security cannot be compromised,” he said.

The use of indelible ink was first proposed last June to safeguard against multiple or phantom voting. Abdul Rashid then said that the system would be subject to amendments to the Election (Conduct of Election) Regulation 1981.

He said indelible ink had been chosen over other measures, such as a biometric system working off the MyKad (chip-based identity card carried by all Malaysians above the age of 12) because such such smartcard readers would have cost about RM60,000 each, and every voting stream would have to be equipped with one. Using such a system would have cost in excess of RM30mil. The commission bought about 47,000 bottles of the indelible ink, manufactured in India, for RM2mil.

“citing public order and security reasons.”

Another 2 million gone into the drain! What public order and security reasons??! Bullshits!! Security my ass!! How this is a security problem? Somebody please whack this bastard for me. If I see him around I will shove some inks down his ass!! Would using indelible ink cause us to be terrorist?? Or would we suddenly fall sick and die? Maybe people will see indelible ink on one’s finger and become stone? How is it ever going to jeopardize national security????????? Can someone give any reasons please?

“irresponsible quarters had purchased indelible ink from abroad with the intention of creating confusion and suspicion as to the status of voters”

Then it should be the duty and responsibility of the police and EC duty to ensure that such thing will not happen during election day! But, how to create confusion? Why there are people want to buy the stupid ink, spending so much money and waste it? I believe the opposition do not have the money to do so. If they have the money, they will never go around asking and pleading for donation. The opposition is dirt poor. I have seen it with my eyes. They have nothing!! Their operation room is so pathetic you would want to cry when you see it. So, that leave us with only one party, none other but the mighty rich Barisan Nasional??!!! What are they afraid of?

First, EC announced that instead of counting the parliamentary and state ballot papers separately, this time it will be done simultaneously. Means what? The opposition parties which are lacking of manpower will be at the losing end, for now they need 2 counting agents instead of 1. For Barisan Nasional, with their deep pocket they can get any sohai to do the counting job for them. It is already very tough for the opposition to get volunteers to be their polling and counting agents, with this new ruling, EC purposely put the opposition in a difficult position! (Nevermind if you do not understand this, I do not expect dumbass to understand this either, yes.. you waggawagga if you read this!!)

I do not understand how some quarters would like to buy the ink, well if yes then what they can do with it? Apply on themselves so they cannot go in and vote? That is so dumb!! He really thinks we Malaysians are that stupid?!! This is power abuse!! Cilaka this Abdul Rashid! I hope this son of a bitch rots in hell for doing this!! What a crying shame. I am utterly disgusted. Our election process is a f**king joke!!

    They spend RM2.4 million just to buy time and fool us. That’s the biggest bullshit of all, I mean those lengthy sentences used to explain the thing. I read the sentences several times and still don’t get the point. And kanasai, what threat to national security? I am pissed that we had been led around like this.

    –> I am damn pissed as well! Memang kanasai lah this EC and Abdul Ra-shit! BN is feeling the heat and they resort to underhand dirty tactics like these to win this time around. Sending letters, postcards, gerrymandering, total opposition blackout in media, issuing threats, change of ruling for counting process, now this indelible inks. What else?

    So.. where did the 2 million went? Did they actually buy the bottles? If they didn’t… then THEY LIED!! Must HAVE EVIDENCE… or its Money Laundering!!!

    No indellible ink… so? INVESTIGATE! SPR is NOT FIT to oversee the election because it IS CORRUPT!

    How can a biased and corrupt body continue with overseeing the election?

    United Nations HELP!!!

    I guess its too late by then…? I guess we have to pull down our pants *once again* and GET SCREWED for the next 5 years.. (wishful thinking… because election could be abolish.. and worst case..we have emperors for life..

    –> They are treating us like idiots, making last minute changes. they coyly ‘promised’ and made a U-TURN now. I am not laying down and wait nicely for them to screw me. Least that I can do is to bitch about them everyday so the whole world know about how much shits we endured till now.

    Allow Mydeen to respond on behalf of YBB Dek Mat. We have stood for elections, and all party members of the Siber Party of Malaysia (M) have won their seats uncontested. In fact, we’re so thrilled by our excellent showing that we’ve unveiled our manifesto and election symbol and are now going for all seats in the Parliament. Do read us to find out more.
