Ramasamy wants to get to the bottom of issue

BUTTERWORTH: Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy is calling on the Election Commission (EC) to reveal the persons or political party that had allegedly registered his daughter as a voter without her knowledge.

“EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof recently told reporters in Kuching that a political party had registered my daughter as a voter.

“So, was it Barisan Nasional, DAP or PKR that registered her?” he asked yesterday.

Ramasamy said he gave police two weeks to investigate the matter, after filing a report at the central Seberang Prai district police headquarters in Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam, on Feb 2.

“My daughter, Sri Vaitheki, was in United Kingdom pursuing her PhD in 2011 when the alleged registration took place.”

Ramasamy said he was worried that some one might “fraudulently” cast votes on behalf of his 25-year-old daughter on polling day.

On Tuesday, Abdul Aziz was quoted in the media as saying that Ramasamy’s daughter was registered as a voter in Semenyih, Selangor, under the Hulu Langat parliamentary constituency, using an address in Semenyih on Feb 21, 2011.
