EC: Dry run nothing to do with us

PUTRAJAYA: The Election Com­mission (EC) will not be involved in the dry run planned by Barisan Nasional.

This was because the commission would not work with political parties when preparing for the general election, an EC official said.

Saying that such work would only be done by the parties themselves, the official said the EC was unaware of any plans by Barisan to conduct a polls dry run.

“It is Barisan’s prerogative. We are not involved.

“If they are really doing this, it is their own initiative,” a source said when contacted.

“When it does deal with political parties, the commission will give briefings about the election process and its role.”
