Your vote is secret, IGP assures police personnel


KUALA LUMPUR: Your vote is secret, the Inspector-General of Police has assured his personnel nationwide.

Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the police force consisted of public servants who are professionals.

"We do not determine which party they can vote for.

"All votes are secret and this is definitely something we practise within the force.

"They (the personnel) will decide, it is their right to vote for the party they choose," he told reporters at Bukit Aman on Friday.

He said within the police force, there are 111,702 early voters with 5,660 voters at Bukit Aman and 106,042 voters at the respective states nationwide.

"The process of early voting is expected to start at 9am on Saturday (May 5) and will end at 5pm.

"We have set up voting stations at the Officers' Mess and Perkep House here at Bukit Aman," he said, adding that early voting centres would be set up at each state police headquarters.

He said 7,695 retired police personnel are also among the early voters, explaining that they were categorised as such because they were still registered to vote at their respective police contingents.
