It’s Bersih 4.0 if EC does not clean up its act, and electoral rolls, warns Ambiga

(TMI) – A street rally has been promised if the Election Commission proceeds with its delineation of parliamentary and state constituency boundaries before cleaning up the electoral rolls.

Bersih co-chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenavasan (pic) vowed that the Bersih 4.0 rally will be held.

“This is not a threat. It is a promise,” Ambiga said, adding that it had to be taken out to the streets to make those in power realise that the people were serious about their demand for reforms.

The ongoing Royal Commission of Inquiry on illegal immigrants in Sabah has clearly revealed that the electoral roll in Malaysia needed to be cleaned up, The Star reported her as saying.

Besides the electoral roll, the indelible ink issue during the general election was another sticky issue which the EC has not taken responsibility for.

“If the EC proceeds with the delineation exercise without cleaning up the electoral rolls, nothing will change and we will be stuck for the next eight years,” she said.

She was addressing a crowd at a Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) fundraising dinner at a school hall in Kuala Lumpur last night.

“When Bersih 4.0 will be held depends on the response of the EC,” Ambiga said.
