PETALING JAYA: Election Commission (EC) chairman Azhar Azizan Harun has declared that he is prepared to step down if the public is unhappy with his performance.

Azhar made the comment on Twitter on Friday (Jan 24), just a day before the Cameron Highlands by-election goes to the polls.

"I will let 30 million Malaysians judge me and the EC," he tweeted.

"And if the majority is not happy with me or EC under me, please tell the MPs to vote against me in Parliament.

"I will resign without condition if there is such a vote.

"That's my solemn promise," he said.

Azhar, better known as Art Harun, has come under fire over the EC's decision to close several polling stations, believed to be Barisan Nasional strongholds, earlier than others.

He was also criticised for alleged inaction over allegations of Pakatan Harapan's wrongdoings in the campaign for the Cameron Highlands by-election.

Azhar was responding to a tweet by a person who said the EC has become worse than before he was appointed as its chairman. 

"Today's EC seem more like a Donkey to the government," he tweeted.
