The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) has been informed that the issuance of postal voting ballots will commence in several constituencies today.
As such, Bersih 2.0 strongly urges all candidates to take note of this and ensure that their polling agents are present to monitor the issuance of postal voting ballots.
If candidates have not received any official notification of the postal voting issuance, they must contact the returning officer in their respective constituencies immediately. In addition, candidates must ask for the official finalised list of postal voters for their constituencies from the returning officer.
Bersih 2.0 also demands that the Electoral Commission immediately announce publicly the finalised number of domestic and overseas postal voters for each constituency. Till today, there is no announcement or information on this.
Bersih 2.0 estimates there will be more than 250,000 domestic postal voters, which will have a significant impact on the election results. The Electoral Commission’s lack of transparency over the final number of postal voters raises serious concerns about the integrity of the postal voting process.
For further information on postal voting, please contact Bersih 2.0 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 011 2860 5720.
