MANY voters had checked and found their names being removed from the electoral or disappeared totally. This had happened after they had exercised their voting rights many times during the past elections in the same constituency.

These people filed their complaints to the KK MP Office and they wanted the matter to be brought up and taken seriously. They said this matter is highly ridiculous and this also reflects the poor inefficiency and slake attitude of the Election Commission (SPR), or may be their names had been removed or deleted for a purpose. Only SPR can explain on why this had happened.

One lady who found her name went missing, and on reporting her case, SPR explained to her that it was due to their computer error or glitches. She said this type of explanation is totally unacceptable, she said what if the computer of SPR "went crazy" that means many names will either disappear or being "accidentally" deleted.

The KK MP Hiew King Cheu had personally helped many voters to check their voting places, he had noticed that in many cases showed "record not found". The voters are angry when their names went missing. It is not reasonable why their name can disappear. 

Hiew said the SPR computer should not have problems like this, and it should not be blamed and as an excuse for what is happening. Many voters who cannot find their names in the electoral will miss their chance to exercise their rights to vote. This is not fair to them because they are genuine voters and had voted so many times. What had actually happened?

MP Hiew urges every eligible voter who found their names missing should immediately check with SPR to have their names reinstated. Every voter should check their names on the electoral and where are their polling stations.

The last quarter of the electoral list for 2012 has finally being released by SPR for public checking and review, it is the best time to check, to make objection and to oppose on someone who is not from the constituency, and especially the dubious person who wants to register as voters.

As for the deceased person, we should immediately inform SPR to have the name removed. This can be done by going to the offices and service centers of the various political parties and to the SPR offices. It will be faster and easier to check through the web site of the SPR,

Every vote counts and it is the responsibility of everyone to elect the right person to represent us.
