BORANG 2 TAKES AWAY THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE FOR OUR ARMED FORCES.
LIKE PAS Director of Operations, Dr Dzulkefly said this is a tough one frought with many barriers, and barriers within barriers.
PAS is seeking permission to enter the camps to do house to house campaigning. If that does not happen, they are willing to do it across the fence....2 barriers already.
PAS Youth is adamant about getting the EC to come clean and do away with Borang 2 for postal votes. A serial number on Boran 2 will reveal who our soldier boys voted for. A concerted effort in this direction would help.
In my first posting announcing the by-election I asked MAFREL, as the only recognised election watch-dog to convince the EC to allow them to supervise the postal voting in the bases.
I for all, call for the total abolition of the postal votes except for overseas students, overseas Malaysians and any Malaysian
who are out of the country but eligible to vote. Stories abound about how our overseas Malaysians are given the runaround by our Embassy people.
We are not in a state of war. The army, navy and police have trucks galore. These should be used to transport our officers to the polling centres. At Merdeka parades a big portion of our armed forces are on display and still nobody DARED to attack us. Are we afraid that the country will be attacked during by-elections. COME OFF IT!
