KUALA LUMPUR: Pos Malaysia Berhad registered 126,000 voters at its 640 post offices over the past seven months. 

Its general manager Mohd Zin Abd Manap said about 2,000 officers were manning counters during office hours to register eligible voters. 

He was commenting on public complaints that it was difficult to register at post offices because of inadequate staff and the attitude of officers who did not take matters seriously. 

In a related development, DAP said that Pos Malaysia and the Election Commission (EC) should ensure the smooth functioning of the voter registration exercise. 

DAP national publicity bureau assistant secretary John Chung said the number of people who registered was low, adding that Pos Malaysia had failed to rectify problems and upgrade services. 

He said that Pos Malaysia and the EC should encourage more eligible Malaysians to register.
