PETALING JAYA: The Election Commission has collected evidence against those who have slandered it and is now mulling the next course of action, said its deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar.
“The EC has decided not to take the slander and allegations lightly.
“We have all the evidence and they cannot run away from it. Our legal division is studying them and will advice on what is the best action to be taken.
“The elections are over and yet these people are still slandering the EC and blatantly lying to the people,” he said Sunday.
Action, he added, would be taken against the leaders of the groups, including those in Pakatan Rakyat, whom he said had defamed the EC.
The EC has been accused of electoral fraud by the Opposition following the 13th general election which saw Barisan Nasional heading the Federal Government and Pakatan retaining Selangor, Kelantan and Penang but losing Kedah.
Pakatan Rakyat has been organising rallies nationwide to protest the poll results with PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim questioning the legitimacy of the Barisan government and alleging that the elections process was flawed and fraudulent.
