KOTA KINABALU: The State Election Commission (EC) has yet to receive any information relating to the accusation by Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) that Barisan Nasional (BN) was unethically transferring Bumiputera voters from Kudat to the Api-Api constituency.
According to Sabah EC Director Datuk Md Idrus Ismail (right), he was not in the know as to whether any formal report had been lodged by anyone on the matter, but he assured that any complaints on alleged election-fixing would be properly looked into.
“I cannot comment any further as I am not aware of any report,” said Idrus, who was in Kuala Lumpur on an official visit when contacted yesterday.
SAPP vice president Datuk Wong Yit Ming alleged on Tuesday that a state BN leader was abusing his position by transferring Bumiputera voters from Kudat to Api-Api constituency.
Wong, who is also SAPP Api-Api Central Liaison Committee (CLC) chairman, said the objective was to increase the number of Bumiputera voters in Api-Api and to reduce the Chinese influence. Wong claimed the transfer of voters was done at Likas Square Complex. (UB)
