The Election Commission has cancelled the use of indelible ink for this general election, citing public order and security issues.
且看什么是什么样的 “public order and security issues”，让选举委员会在选举四天前作出了抽出不褪色墨水的举动。
Abdul Rashid said the use of indelible ink would not be effective as the country’s constitution allows those who refuse to have their fingernail marked with the ink to still be issued with a ballot.
He added that the use of the indelible ink could infringe the constitutional right of a voter to cast his vote, especially if the commission tries to bar someone from voting for having an ink marked in his finger.
“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.
He added that the Federal Constitution gives Malaysians the right to vote and a black mark on the fingernail should not bar people from exercising this right, he said.
嘿嘿嘿，已经涂上了不褪色墨水的选民，你们为什么不如法炮制？难道他们的票比较 “矜贵” 不成？
况且 47,000 罐的墨水都已经到了，RM2.4万元 mil 呀喂！
Abdul Rashid also said there were reports made to the police alleging that certain quarters had purchased indelible ink from abroad with the intention of creating confusion and suspicion as to the status of voters.
He added that police reports were lodged in Kelantan, Perlis and Kedah between Feb 16 and 21 and as a result four individuals are being questioned by the police.
“Their intention is to create confusion and suspicion as to the status of such voters,” he said.
“This may cause chaos at polling stations which, if widespread, may be difficult to control.”
“The EC views these issues seriously as the election process and public order and security cannot be compromised,” he said.
这就是所谓的 security issues 吗？
