Election day is 8 March


After fumbling and wasting expensive airtime for about 8 minutes, the bumbling and clumsy Radio 24 finally managed to carry live SPR Tan Sri Rashid’s announcement that nomination day on 24 Feb and Election day on 8 March.

Now I’m having a nice time listening to the Election Commission chairman arguing with somebody who mentioned election rigging. “What do you mean?” “This is giving a bad image!”

Now he’ arguing about something else. “Itu saya tak mau jawab lah.” Wow. He’s not answerable. Cool.

Boycott elections: Rashid

Election Commission (EC) chairman Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman requests the prosecution right from government.

Abdul Rashid said if he had this kind of power, he would prosecute the opposition parties which libel on EC.

He said EC faced a lot of untrue criticisms including the criticism of EC only helped government and became the “dog” for government.

Therefore, Rashid said if EC owned prosecution power, the commission would certainly bring the libelers to court.

“Since we do not have this kind of power now, we choose to be silent and it is impossible for us to strike back,” he told Sin Chew Daily in an exclusive interview.

Abdul Rashid denounced opposition parties as “not educated” because they made baseless criticism.

And now, those of you with some time to spare can now proceed to do some CSI:

Try type in the IC numbers in SPR database and see some muhibbah magic at work:

>IC: 991214740101 Seer Hor Leong [Parlimen 092-Sabak Bernam]
>IC: 910815750017 Periasamy K [Parlimen 113-Sepang]
>IC: 981231081137 Hj Abd Wahab B Md Saman [Parlimen092-Sabak Bernam]
