[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih Dan Adil (Bersih 2.0) ingin menzahirkan rasa simpati kepada keluarga dan rakan-rakan Adun PKR Sungai Kandis Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei yang telah meninggal dunia dua hari lalu.

Dalam masa yang sama, Bersih 2.0 benar-benar mengambil berat mengenai legitimasi dan integriti pilihan raya kecil di Sungai Kandis yang bakal tiba, sekiranya enam pesuruhjaya Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) sedia ada masih kekal di pejabat pada waktu itu.

Kami menuntut agar para pesuruhjaya SPR bertanggungjawab terhadap penglibatan mereka atas kegagalan dalam melaksanakan pilihan raya umum 2018 yang bersih, bebas dan adil, sepertimana yang dibuktikan dengan bukti penipuan dan salah laku pengurusan yang jelas semasa pilihan raya.

Walaupun bekas pengerusi SPR Mohamad Hashim Abdullah telah memilih untuk perletakan jawatan awal, tidak seharusnya dinafikan bahawa enam pesuruhjaya yang lain sama-sama tidak kompeten dan tidak layak untuk melaksanakan pilihan raya dan telah berniat memanipulasi pilihan raya umum 2018.

Memandangkan pilihan raya kecil Sungai Kandis bakal diadakan segera, kami sekali lagi menuntut perletakan jawatan segera pesuruhjaya SPR yang selebihnya. Sekiranya mereka enggan meletakkan jawatan, satu tribunal untuk penyingkiran mereka mesti ditubuhkan berdasarkan Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Kami juga ingin menegaskan sekali lagi bahawa pelantikan pengerusi dan para pesuruhjaya baru bagi SPR yang berintegriti, tidak berpihak dan bebas daripada parti politik serta mempunyai kepakaran dalam hal ehwal pilihan raya perlu diselesaikan secepat mungkin.

Langkah ini adalah penting dan segera untuk mengembalikan kepercayaan awam sebelum pilihan raya kecil Sungai Kandis yang akan berlangsung dalam tempoh beberapa bulan sahaja lagi.

Clean up the Electoral Commission before Sungai Kandis by-election

The Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) would like to express our sympathy for the families and friends of PKR’s Sungai Kandis assembly member Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei who passed away two days ago.

At the same time, Bersih 2.0 is deeply concerned with the legitimacy and integrity of the upcoming by-election in Sungai Kandis, if the current six Electoral Commission commissioners remain in office by that time.

We hold the six commissioners responsible for their complicit role in the failure to conduct a clean, free and fair 2018 general election, as proven by the blatant evidence of fraud and mismanagement that happened during the election.
Although the then Electoral Commission chairperson, Hashim Abdullah, had opted for early retirement, we must not put aside the fact that the other six commissioners are equally incompetent, unqualified to conduct elections, and manipulated the 2018 general election in bad faith.

As a by-election has to be held in Sungai Kandis soon, we again call for the immediate resignation of the remaining six commissioners. If they refuse to resign, a tribunal for their removal must be initiated in accordance with the Federal Constitution.

We would also like to reiterate that the appointment of new Electoral Commission chairperson and commissioners with integrity, impartiality and independence from party politics, and expertise on electoral matters must be done as soon as possible.

These steps are urgent and crucial to restore public confidence before the Sungai Kandis by-election, which will be held within months to come.
