KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Election Commission (EC) says it has rectified a technical glitch that had temporarily denied access to the mySPR Semakapplication and EC portal.

Visitors were able to regain access to the two facilities at 8pm Sunday (March 24), EC chairman Azhar Azizan Harun said in a statement Monday (March 25).

“The EC apologises for the inconvenience caused by the technical glitch which resulted in the applications being unable to communicate with the main database of voters,” he said.

He gave the assurance that voter information in the EC database was unaffected, including information on the electoral rolls for the upcoming Rantau state by-election in Negri Sembilan.

Azhar said the electoral rolls for the by-election went on sale on March 14.

Nomination for the Rantau by-election is on Saturday, March 30, and polling on April 13.

“The EC is scheduled to distribute the voter's card beginning Wednesday (March 27) to all voters in the Rantau state constituency,” he said. – Bernama
