KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — The Election Commission (EC) said today that it is not worried about the election ink that can be washed off, stressing that voters cannot vote twice with one IC number.
Several voters have reported washing off the election ink, which is meant to be indelible to prevent double voting, after casting their ballots today, with just soap and water.
“I’m not worried about indelible ink washed off today because tomorrow you cannot vote,” EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar told reporters at SMK Bukit Bandaraya polling centre in Bangsar here today.
“How is he going to vote without a MyKad or an IC number? One rakyat’s name is only stated once,” he added.
Asked about the quality of the election ink, the main safeguard against fraud, Wan Ahmad said: “The supplier sent what kind of quality, we don’t know.”
When pointed out that the EC had a year to get the best quality ink, Wan Ahmad said it was a “complicated” process.
A businessman, who only wanted to be known as Mr Lee, showed a clean index finger separately to reporters here despite being marked with ink after voting in Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya.
“I don’t think this is indelible. I used detergent from the kitchen. It’s one of the cheap brands,” said Lee, adding that he had come here to meet a friend.
Election 2013, which is touted to be the tightest electoral race in history, has been marred with reports of indelible ink that can be removed easily, vote-buying and phantom voters.
Wan Ahmad, however, dismissed reports of phantom voters in the 13th general election, saying: “Everybody can make reports. I went to tell the people, don’t believe them.”
He stressed that foreigners did not have MyKads, and hence could not vote.
The Election Commission (EC) said today that it is not worried about the election ink that can be washed off, stressing that voters cannot vote twice with one IC number?? Then what for you use Indelible Ink for this 13th General Election??
I have seen a lot of my friends or the voters sharing their concern about this indelible ink and proven that it could be removed easily and it’s not serving it’s purpose at all and it’s just wasting the money I guess?
I have voted as a responsible Malaysian. Have you voted yet? Please go vote now no matter what, as there’s only few hours left!
I tried to clean / wash away the indelible ink using cif dish washer and bingo! See how reliable is the indelible ink supposed to prevent double vote and all??!
Check this as one of my friend using cif also able to clean the indelible ink without any single mark pun!
Use what to remove the general election indelible ink? Some used bleach, some used cif, some used toothpaste and all success! Check out this video uploaded by a voter earlier this morning and it clearly show that this indelible ink is not so indelible and it’s not permanent.
So conclusion is what? They claim that it’s because never goncang well? Never shake the indelible ink then apply? Hmm what say you? Can you clean the indelible ink on your index finger after casting the vote?
I think everyone trying to wash or clean away this indelible ink just to try how indelible it is but then no point as it’s know fact so just leave with it and show a proof that you done your part! #inikalilah #ge13
Please go to vote as early as possible tomorrow okay! This is because if you arrive late, you may not be able to vote due to the time limit or even you found that someone voted for you? Inikalilah! Jom Ubah!
Undi awal amat penting, sebab mungkin anda tidak layak untuk undi sebab masa tak cukup ataupun kemungkinan orang lain sudah undi untuk anda?
1. Go to vote very early (bring food， drinks ， camera & phone)
2. Stay after voting (with friends, don’t act alone)
3. If you see people not from your neighbourhood, be friendly, smile and ask “apa khabar?”, ask them where do they live, judge for yourselves whether they are a Malaysian.
4. If you are very certain they are non-Malaysians, please advise them that only Malaysians are allowed to vote. If they refuse to listen, contact ABU & Pemantau.
5. Take pictures and videos.
6. Make a police report. Send the police report, pictures and videos to Bersih & email to myDurianTV@gmail.com
