Challenging task ahead for EC

KUALA LUMPUR: The Election Commission (EC) expects a more challenging task in managing this coming 13th general election as the contest between the parties is expected to be more intense than in previous elections.

Anticipating such a situation, EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said the commission would ensure the election officers and workers understood and enforced the election regulations to prevent any untoward incidents.

“We urge all parties to give their full cooperation to the EC. We cannot do it alone.

“We need their cooperation to ensure the contest goes smoothly,” he told Bernama and RTM after an interview by Klasik Nasional FM radio at Wisma Radio, Angkasapuri, here yesterday.

On the names of voters in the electoral roll who are categorised as dubious voters, Abdul Aziz said they could vote if they were genuine voters.

“When they come to the polling centres, we will do the necessary checks before allowing them to vote.

“The EC will not deprive them of their rights, but it is the responsibility of the voters to check their status with the EC, either by going to its website or calling the office to resolve the problem earlier,” he added.

In a statement on Monday, Abdul Aziz said efforts would be made to ensure adequate facilities for disabled people to vote.

“However, the proposal to have ballot papers in Braille cannot be done yet,” he added. — Bernama
