It was not long ago that the EC chief claimed that he was convinced that the BN chief cum PM was legally well briefed to promise Rm5mil to Sibu voters if they voted BN candidate from SUPP. Will the same EC chief agree that such blatant vote buying prohibited anywhere else in the world’s democracies will be stopped by the code of ethics for the caretaker government? In addition there has been mountainous amount of abuse of government resources for BN’s campaigns-will EC’s code of ethics stop all these robberies that helped BN’s victories? Don’t wait to find out what these codes of ethics will come to. If the EC cannot enforce its existing codes of ethics for election thus far -which also stipulate that incumbent party cannot abuse govt facilities during campaign, what hope is there that another code of ethics will be enforceable?
