KUALA LUMPUR: The Election Commission (EC) will display the list of names of 42,051 electors whose records are unverifiable for a week from Thursday.

The EC said in a statement that the list would be displayed together with the electoral roll for third quarter of 2011 in 987 locations nationwide.

"The list of doubtful electors is not for the purpose of objection, but for verification by the electors and their next-of-kin.

"If the electors found their names in the list, then they should clear the matter with the National Registration Department and sort out their identification records before referring the matter back to the EC," it said.

The electoral roll for the third quarter of 2011 contained 264,404 applications for new registrations and 52,215 for change of addresses, it said.

It added that those who have been registered during the exercise from July to September but found their names missing from the list should present their case by filling up Form B and sent it to state EC offices within seven days from the date of display.

Objections to the names in the electoral roll can be made by filling up Form C, it said. The EC reminded the public, however, not to make objections for the sake of objecting, but accompanying valid reasons with the objections.

The EC will also display the names of those to be removed from the list.

Between July and September, the commission removed 69,293 names of those who have died as well as 1,068 names of those who were no longer holding citizenship. BERNAMA
