GE15: Voter in Penang barred from casting vote dressed as Predator


GEORGE TOWN: A voter was barred from casting his ballot at a polling centre here as he refused to remove the mask of his costume.

The mystery voter had turned up at the Desa Intan 7A polling centre in Farlim dressed as the Predator – the alien hunter from the movie, comic book and video game franchise.

The police personnel present told him to go back and change if he wanted to exercise his right as a voter.

When interviewed, the mystery voter declined to give his name and other personal details and the reason for appearing as the Predator.

At the SK Sri Aman in Kampung Melayu, Muhamad Shah Rizal Mat Sahat, 32, turned up as Captain America.

“I turned up as a superhero to encourage more 18-year-olds to come out to exercise their voting rights. This is my first time voting in a superhero costume,” he said.
