MCA says no to overseas voting

By Debra Chong, The Malaysian Insider

Malaysians abroad are not qualified to vote because they are “out of touch” with the current state of affairs in the country, MCA told Parliament’s polls reform panel today.

The ruling Barisan Nasional’s (BN) Chinese party said its research showed most Malaysians outside the country only received information from questionable news sources, which it said may not reflect the “true situation” ongoing in the country.

“The future of Malaysia should be determined by those who have faith and still remained in the country,” Datuk Ei Kim Hock, a member of the MCA central committee who headed the party’s team told the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on electoral reform today.
