Pas Youth rejects two indelible ink colours

(NST) The Election Commission’s (EC) proposal to use two indelible ink colours to differentiate early voters during the general election was rejected by the PAS Youth central committee today.

The party’s general election department chief Mohd Sany Hamzan claimed that there would be room for manipulation and cheating if the proposal was implemented.

“The use of different coloured inks would still not resolve the issue of duplicate votes.”

“The PAS Youth central committee insists that EC uses only one colour and also ensures the electoral rolls are “cleaned up” completely,” he said in a statement here today.

Yesterday, EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof was reported to have stated that a decision had been made to use different coloured indelible inks to separate early voters from regular ones to enable a smooth, transparent and fair general election.   

He was also quoted as saying the colours would not be revealed until the day of the general election for security reasons. — BERNAMA
