KOTA KINABALU: A Sabahan who was said to be the country's oldest voter with records showing his age as 129 is actually a century younger.

State Election Commission director Datuk Mohd Idrus Ismail said a check with the National Registration Department (NRD) showed that the man was actually born in 1983 and not 1883.

“It was a technical error,” Mohd Idrus said yesterday. He said the man was born in Sabah but was now living in Perak.
