PETALING JAYA: A decision will be made within a week by PKR's party election committee (JPP) if a forensic audit of the recent party polls is needed.

JPP head Dr Zaliha Mustafa said she was in communication with PKR's Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak regarding his complaints on the unofficial election results.

"They asked for a forensic audit and that's fair for me. So, we can consider that to show our integrity.

"We will make a decision as soon as possible, because we are looking at a few more things, such as the complaints.

"We should come to a decision in a week," Dr Zaliha said when contacted on Tuesday (May 31).

Asked how many complaints there were, Dr Zaliha said there were a few hundred complaints from candidates.

"We have a complaints panel to look at it. Some complaints are about that (vote counting irregularities), but we are still detailing it," said Dr Zaliha.

On Tuesday, Farhash reiterated calls for a forensic audit on the PKR polls' unofficial results, saying there were many complaints and objections from candidates.

Farhash claimed the results were manipulated as the vote-counting process took place without the presence of third parties or candidates' representatives.

Official results of the party elections will be announced at the PKR congress on June 25 and 26.
