KUALA LUMPUR: Incumbent Wanita PKR chief Zuraida Kamaruddin (pic) has called for fresh probe following viral videos of alleged PKR “phantom voters” in Selangor.
She said she found the allegations disturbing as some party workers claimed to have discovered that phantom voters were brought in to vote in some of the branches in the state.
“Some of our party workers discovered some who are not even from the branches.
“They are not party members, which I find quite disturbing.
“We want to know who took them there, this must be investigated in line with the statement made by (party president-elect) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim,” she told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Monday (Oct 23).
Videos have gone viral, showing polling officers ticking off unlisted voters during Selangor PKR's second stage e-voting on Sunday (Oct 21).
In a separate statutory declaration (SD), dated Oct 17, Sarawak PKR information chief Vernon Kedit cast suspicion on the membership of more than a thousand people in the Julau and Sarikei branches.
Zuraida, who is also Housing and Local Government Minister, said the PKR political bureau should get the election steering committee (JPP) to look into the matter.
“We want a full probe on it,” she said.
She also expects that the PKR political bureau meeting to discuss whether there is a need for recounts in Melaka and Negri Sembilan.
“It seems that there are some technical issues, which the JPP needs to fix.
“They also need to check on the results which apparently did not tally with the number of members who voted,” she alleged.
