According to DAP's Lee Wee Tak:
'The 3 rules are designed to frustrate initiatives to detect and act against deliberate or mass manipulation of electoral roll. The people drafting and approving this piece of legislation clearly do not have idea what fairness and justice means, or worse, have certain agenda in mind and practice.'
'According to section 15 of AKTA PILIHAN RAYA 1958, PERATURAN-PERATURAN PILIHAN RAYA (PENDAFTARAN PEMILIH) 2002,
1. Objections to any addition to the voters’ roll must be made within 7 days from the date the supplementary electoral roll is open for inspection; (supposedly every quarter hence 4 times a year)
2. A person can only object against up to 10 registered names only; and
3. A fee of RM10 is to be charged for each name being submitted for protest.'
I am sure any rational person would find the above rules not only unfriendly to him, but positively discouraging. It is like telling would be complainant to forget it if you are not determined to do so! I wonder what EC staff are supposed to be doing if not to ensure accurate input of data and to amend their own mistakes. Can we be blamed for thinking they are in collusion with the ruling BN to ensure their unfair advantage in the elections?
