Court: Prisoners have right to vote


KUALA LUMPUR: In a test case, the High Court has ruled that a prisoner who is registered as a voter before his conviction has the right to vote, but the Election Commission (EC) has no power to bring him to the polling station for him to cast his ballot paper.

It held that the prisoner has to apply to the Prisons Department director-general to make arrangements for him to vote.
