Postal Voters’ Data Incomplete


SHAH ALAM, 25 Apr: Bukit Tiga State Legislative Assembly (DUN) candidate, Rodziah Ismail (PKR) regrets that there are still shortcomings in the Election Commission’s (EC) data management, this time it is regarding postal voters.

She said that the latest electoral roll obtained from the EC did not include complete information on the postal voters.

“I received the list of 12 other postal voters from abroad for this constituency, but it was had incomplete details on where they live, how to be contacted and so on.

“This stunts the effort of candidates to interact and communicate with them (postal voters), especially about the focus and the manifesto highlighted for the GE (General Election) this time,” she explained.

Previously, the Batu Tiga DUN registered 31 postal voters with an addition of 12 more after being updated, this brings the total number to 40 postal voters.

Commenting on the electoral roll in the DUN she is contesting in, Rodziah, who is also the last term incumbent, said that as of now there are no problems regarding the matter.

“So far, in my area, there are no such matters arising. Of course there are unknown voters, but it is a small amount and it is not dubious.

“I am also grateful to the advances in technology and the social media today has helped me a lot to become familiar with the voters and bringing them closer to me,” said the Woman Exco.

There are a total of 45,005 registered voters in the Batu Tige constituency that will see a three-cornered clash between Rodziah Ismail (PKR), Datuk Ahmad Nawawi M.Zin (BN and Mohd Uzi Che Husin (Independent).
