The Election Commission is quick to put it as a technical fault-by National Registration Department, the EC Chief reportedly guessed. But there has been too many `technical faults’ that people are entitled to suspect that it was done with some intention-the intention to defraud the elections! Too far fetched? From past experiences there had been many cases of organised mass-migration of voters from one constituency to another eg an anonymous operator, previously working with BN and now PR, admitted that some 2 000 voters were moved from Air Itam to Tanjung Bungah in Penang when a BN politician was facing a strong challenge. He won the contest-but did he really? A house was found to have 100 voters registered in it. Technical error? Thus when something amiss like this is spotted there must be a full-on effort to locate where the problem lies-is it involving only 1 person, a whole department or a whole history? Could this be the only case, or symptomatic of the entire practice of the BN government? If more ex-BN operators/politicians who are now in PR are willing to `sing’ then we can get closer to the truths faster. Why are they not doing it-despite PR’s purported support for free and fair elections?????
More ‘instant Malaysians’ discovered after IC scam
Written by Malaysia Chronicle
After the revelation yesterday by several blogs and portals including Harakahdaily about a non-citizen registered as a voter – only to find the person’s status changed to ‘Malaysian citizen’ hours later, a PAS division has discovered many similar cases.
Right: “Rita” and “Saifuddin”, among Malaysia’s latest citizens since yesterday
According to the division’s deputy chairman, Mismah, a voter in Ijok whose status had been listed as a permanent resident holding a MyPR red card on the National Registration Department’s website before it changed to a blue MyKad, is not the last person to be that lucky.
Khairul Anuar Manap revealed a total of 52 similar cases in which the permanent residents had their status changed to Malaysian citizens in matter of hours since the news made headlines yesterday.
Khairul said his division together with the Federal Territory PAS’s IT team had been collecting data yesterday to lodge report over Mismah’s case, detecting 52 permanent residents in the second quarter electoral list released by the Election Commission.
Of these, 28 are registered in the Titiwangsa constituency (held by the late Dr Lo’Lo Mohd Ghazali of PAS), five in Segambut, eight in Batu, four in Wangsa Maju, six in Lembah Pantai and one in Bandar Tun Razak.
Khairul said the results from the NRD’s website had been screen captured for the purpose of complaints at the EC office in Jalan Raja Muda Aziz.
However, the EC officer said the 52 were Malaysian citizens according to the NRD’s system.
“All the names had become citizens in a matter of hours,” said Khairul, adding the names had been voters even before the status change.
“Is there a conspiracy between EC and NRD to ensure UMNO-Barisan Nasional’s victory?” he questioned, echoing fears by several Pakatan Rakyat leaders earlier that the government, NRD and EC were in a secret plan to approve thousands of citizenship applications in exchange for them to vote for BN.
Khairul warned the authorities not to take the matter lightly, saying there should be immediate action before the situation called for drastic measures.
Earlier yesterday, blogger “Perisik Rakyat” uncovered 169 names whose identification numbers have the two-digit “71” after the six digits denoting one’s date of birth.
When their details were cross checked with the National NRD’s online checking system (http://www.jpn.gov.my/semakic/index.php), it was found that at least one cardholder, Mismah, was listed as permanent resident.
In an incredible twist, less than an hour after our first search, a check on the same person returned a different result showing she was a blue MyKad holder.
The EC’s website (http://daftarj.spr.gov.my/) lists Mismah as an eligible voter at Selangor’s Ijok state constituency currently held by Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim.
Meanwhile, PAS vice president Salahuddin Ayub announced a press conference on the latest exposé at party headquarters.
SPR nafi penduduk tetap didaftar sebagai pengundi

Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya Malaysia menafikan penduduk tetap (PR) telah didaftarkan sebagai pengundi.
Sebaliknya, kata pengerusinya, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof kesilapan itu mungkin berpunca akibat kecuaian teknikal Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN).
NONE”Saya fikir senarai nama PR di laman web JPN adalah senarai lama yang belum dikemaskini,” kata Abdul Aziz dalam SMS kepada Malaysiakini malam semalam.
Katanya, hanya rakyat Malaysia yang boleh memohon untuk mendaftar sebagai pengundi.
“PR tidak dibenarkan kecuali Kementerian Dalam Negeri meluluskan permohonan mereka sebagai rakyat Malaysia. Jika tidak permohonan mereka sebagai pengundi secara automatik akan ditolak oleh sistem saringan SPR selepas menyemak status mereka dengan sistem JPN – Agency Link Up System (Alis),” katanya.
Namun, kata Abdul Aziz SPR akan mempamerkan daftar pemilih tambahan yang dikeluarkan setiap empat bulan untuk tatapan umum selama seminggu.
“Pengundi di kawasan itu boleh membantah (jika mendapati ada penyelewengan),” katanya.
Abdul Aziz mengulas kontroversi di mana terdapat dakwaan bahawa penduduk tetap didaftarkan sebagai pengundi dan nama mereka tersenarai pada daftar pemilih tambahan yang baru. Status penduduk tetap itu kemudiannya ‘dinaik-taraf’ sebagai warganegara dalam beberapa jam, mengikut sistem pengesahan online JPN.
