KANGAR: Those with proof to back claims of the presence of voters with dual citizenship, especially along the Malaysia-Thai border, must forward the evidence to the Election Commission (EC). 

EC deputy chairman Datuk Abdullah Zawawi said the commission could not act on the claims unless evidence was provided. 

“Those with evidence should forward the information to the EC so that it can delete the names of those with dual citizenship from the electoral roll,” Abdullah said after briefing the Perlis EC and police officers at the Putra Palace Hotel here yesterday. 

On whether the commission had detected cases of voters with dual citizenship, Abdullah said there were none “except for unsubstantial claims on the presence of such voters.”  

“As far as the EC is concerned, registered voters with the proper identity cards and proper addresses are qualified to be listed in the electoral roll,” he said.  

“The EC exhibits the electoral roll in every state for public scrutiny and for protests to be made within a specific period, so the electoral roll should be genuine,” he said.
