PAS seeks EC meeting over Kelantan voter shifting

KUALA LUMPUR: PAS will seek a meeting with the Election Commis­sion (EC) to protest what it claims to be a massive shifting of voters in Kelantan in favour of Barisan Nasional.

PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said the movement of voters was made possible because the new EC ruling did not require the electoral drafts to be made public.

He said EC had informed the political parties of the new ruling on electoral drafts.

“We will lodge a protest with the EC as we found that there had been a massive shifting of voters, particularly in several constituencies in Kelantan,” he told reporters after chairing a special PAS central working committee (CWC) meeting at the party headquarters here yesterday.

He added that the CWC would direct PAS lawmakers in 195 state and parliamentary seats to report to the party if there had been movement of voters in their constituencies.

Temangan assemblyman Datuk Mohamed Fadzli Hassan, who also attended the press conference, said the movement of voters was aimed at ousting PAS in Kelantan during the general election.

“The focus is to increase the number of seats for Barisan to overthrow the (PAS-ruled) state government. This is undemocratic,” he said.

Mohamed Fadzli claimed the voters who were shifted were hardcore Barisan supporters.
