The EC is rubbish. March 4, 2008

Solid proof now that the EC plays to UMNO’s tune.

He said provisions to the law needed if the ink was to be used still could not affect the constitutional right of a voter to cast his vote, even a person whose fingernail had been marked with indelible ink or one who refuses to have his or her fingernail marked this way.

“From a practical point of view, the issuance of a ballot paper to such a voter would render the EC’s proposal meaningless and will not bring about a positive result, whilst having the potential to create misunderstanding as well as altercations and arguments at polling stations,” he said.

And why the f^&$ didn’t you think of amending the constitution when you before you bought the ink? When we can make frivolous amendments to extend the EC chairman’s tenure by 1 year?

Abdul Rashid said there were also reports made to the police confirming that certain irresponsible quarters had purchased indelible ink from abroad with the intention of creating confusion and suspicion as to the status of voters.

Right, we’ll see mobs of people in front of polling stations waiting to grab you and mark your finger with ink!

The “newpapers” tomorrow will treat this as a non-event when they were praising the virtues of indelible ink before. If I recall, the Star recently had a feature outlining how to apply the ink on a person without a forefinger or without any fingers at all, and NST had an editorial mocking the opposition they would now have no way to call the elections unfair.

The tiny silver lining in all this though is that BN has probably given up all hope of attracting the votes of the urban and educated people. It’s the UMNOputras, racists, clueless – and phantom voters – that they will be going for now. Sadly though, this is enough for them to win.

Malaysiakini is now available without a subscription until March 10th btw.

Gunakan kesempatan ini untuk membuktikan kepada rakyat bahawa SPR adalah penipu dan bersekongkol dengan BN untuk menipu dalam pilihanraya ini. Jelaskan bahawa apa yang didakwa oleh BA dan BERSIH adalah benar dengan pembatalan ini. Jelaskan kepada rakyat terutama mereka diatas pagar bahawa pembatalan penggunaan dakwat ini sebagai bukti penipuan pilihanraya disamping segala bukti yang sedia ada.

Gunakan kesempatan yang tinggal untuk berkempen tentang ini terutama terhadap mereka di atas pagar, insyaallah, segala penipuan tersebut tidak dapat melawan semua undi yang BA dapat dengan adanya tambahan undi mereka di atas pagar kepada BA.

We have an empty headed EC chairman, buying RM2 millions worth of indelible ink for fingernails marking on voters and later found to be not in line with the constitutions. Then, Mr Abdul Rashid what are you going to do with those ink?? How much “halal” commission you get from this purchase??
