PETALING JAYA: PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah and her husband party advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim have lodged a police report over the indelible ink used in the general election.

The report was lodged at the police station near the party's headquarters at Tropicana Merchant Square.

"We voted at about 9.30am but by 5pm our fingers were clear and there were no more signs of the ink.

"The Election Commission (EC) had guaranteed that the ink will last for five days yet this is not the case," he said at a press conference on Monday.

Anwar accused EC of lying about the ink's durability. On the black 505 rallies, Anwar said they would continue with the gatherings, adding the party was also looking at the next course of action.

"But we also realize that people want to move beyond rallies and we are discussing what we need to do next," he added.

He also stated that the peace undertaking initiated by former Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla which he signed was regarding ethical standards on the elections and not about power sharing.

Anwar also claimed that Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had verbally agreed to the pact but did not sign it.
