KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 (Bernama) -- The Election Commission (EC) is wants proof to be presented to the commission to clean up the electoral roll rather than allegations in the media.
EC secretary Datuk Kamaruddin Mohamed Baria said any party who wanted to ensure a clean, accurate and orderly electoral roll could review it on the EC's website.
"If there is anything that is unclear, one can approach the EC on the matter.
"It is the intention of the EC to see the existing electoral roll clean, accurate and orderly and the EC requires the cooperation of all parties in the matter and not to make allegations in the media," he said in a statement here today.
He said registered voters have been advised to check their information so that corrections could be made if there were mistakes.
Kamaruddin said this was because only the voter knew his personal information including the real residential address.
Commenting on the allegations of a pro-opposition newspaper that 6,164 names found in the 2012 Third Quarter Electoral Roll in the Batu Caves state constituency were phantom voters, he said the allegation was a mystery to EC as the additional voters register for the Third Quarter (3/2012) was not ready yet.
He said the registration of voters for the period would only be starting on July 1 and ending on September 30, 2012.
Kamaruddin also denied allegations that EC was drawing constituency delineations arbitrarily, saying the commission was correcting wrong localities according to sub-regulation 25(3) of the General Election Regulations (Registered Voters) 2012, which does not involve amending borders as had been reported.
