Ijok: We shall return

We walked from shop to shop to thank the people of Ijok in Batang Berjuntai. Almost every shopkeepers believe that PKR would have won the by-election if not for the extensive vote-buying and great number of phantom voters.

PKR leaders were not disheartened by the Ijok setback. They received a very warm welcome in Batang Berjuntai town when they were going from shop to shop to thank the Ijok voters for their support.One of the residents who were present at the coffee shop in Pekan Ijok this afternoon told me that Khalid is his YB and he would not recognise Partiban as his wakil rakyat.

Anwar and other PKR leaders thanked DAP and other opposition parties for their undivided support. They also extended their gratitude to the Ijok people. Khalid has promised to set up a service centre in Ijok besides taking a pledge to check on Partiban.

In my address to the people of Ijok, I said that PKR would have won the by-election if the Umno-led BN coalition have had not turn it into a “buy-election”. I pointed out that Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang has estimated that no less than RM100 million has been spent by the BN camp in winning Ijok. I strongly believe that the missing 142 ballot papers were being used by the BN agent to buy votes by rotation , and the two bus load of makciks all the way from Perlis were actually phantom voters. And we have no idea of how many phantom voters have slipped through quietly.

I also stressed on the importance of opposition unity and cohesive cooperation between the DAP and PKR. I said that despite of maximum bribes, threats and frauds launched by the BN camp, PKR has done quite well by winning 50 to 60 percent of the Chinese votes. I also estimated that Khalid has gotten around 40 to 45 percent of the Malay votes and about 10% of the Indian votes. I believe that Ijok will fall into the hands of opposition come general elections in another six months.

I expressed my hope that DAP and PKR will team up to challenge the Umno-led BN coalition; and likewise, PKR should also team up with Pas. I said that although DAP may not be able to team up with Pas, but we certainly can help each other in the spirit of opposition unity. We have no reason to be unfriendly with each other because our common enemy is the Umno-led BN coalition.

We should keep up the momentum from Ijok to Selangor and right up to the whole country . Based on the support we have gotten from Ijok, the opposition in Selangor, on paper, has a fairly good chance to affect a change of state government in the impending General Elections.

Khalid has decided to set up a service centre in Ijok. The party has registered some 50 new members on the spot.

    Probe mystery of missing ballots, EC told
    Soon Li Tsin
    May 1, 07 8:07pm Adjust font size:

    The Election Commission is coming under fire for its nonchalant respond to scores of ballot papers reported missing in one of the polling stations in Saturday’s Ijok by-election.

    According to the official results, there were 142 unreturned ballot papers in one of the five voting groups at Ijok’s Pekan Berjuntai Bestari Utara polling district.

    The number of missing ballots amounts to nearly 30 percent of the total of 500 ballot papers issued in the fourth voting group in Bestari Utara. Apparently, one in three voters had decided to take the ballot paper with them without casting it.

    How this could have happened under the watchful eyes of a team of Election Commission officers and party scrutineers remain a mystery.

    Voters in each polling districts are categorised according to their age in different groups, called voting streams. Generally, older groups are in voting streams 1, 2 and 3 while the youngers ones are in 4 and 5. [Click here for the official results according to voting streams]

    All ballot papers in the other eight polling districts were accounted for except for Jaya Setia, where one ballot paper in the first voting stream was not returned. [Click here for the complete results]

    In the hotly contested Ijok by-election, Parti Keadilan Rakyat candidate Khalid Ibrahim lost to Barisan Nasional’s K Parthiban by a 1,850 vote majority amidst allegations of election irregularities and phantom voters.

    In an immediate reaction, Election Commission secretary Kamaruzaman Mohd Noor argued that the practice of some voters of not returning the ballot papers occurred at every general election or by-election.

    “The EC is unable to do anything. The booth to mark the ballot paper is a private place. If the voter keeps the ballot paper as a souvenir, there is nothing we can do,” he told Bernama.

    This is despite that offenders could be charged under the Election Offences Act and face a jail term of up to two years or RM5,000 fine.

    Kamaruzaman’s response did not go down well with several election experts when asked by malaysiakini to comment on the matter.

    Here is what they have to say:

    Wong Chin Huat, elections expert

    This is a serious problem. How can people carry out their ballot papers? I can’t make sense of this because there are effectively five pairs of eyes on a voter when they cast their ballot.

    I can only think of two situations as to how this could happen. One is that a clerk tore off more ballots than were given out, and second, voters might have cast a dummy paper into the ballot box (and took out the ballot paper). But what are the chances of that happening because surely when the EC officers tally the vote, they would see a bunch of papers which are not ballots?

    It shows there could be some hanky-panky going on. If the polling agents had paid attention, this cannot possibly happen. Something very fishy is going on. Even one missing ballot is fishy, let alone 142. But what can the EC do? That’s a good question.

    This is not a new occurrence either. In the 2004 general elections, Dungun (in Terengganu) recorded 1,598 missing ballots for the parliamentary seat there. There are similar incidences and yet nothing had been done. This reflects badly on the EC

    Dr Mavis Puthucheary, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (Ikmas)

    It is very difficult for a person to not cast a vote. There are representatives from both parties present and the ballots are counted in front of them, and these have to tally up. I would ask EC to explain the situation as to what happened and why weren’t there any protest from those party representatives to this. It would be interesting to find out what they would say.

    I would pursue this with the EC on the large discrepancy in this particular voting stream. I’m puzzled about this. I have never experienced such an occurrence. Some explanation has to come from Kamaruzaman. His earlier explanation is not good enough.

    Ramon Navaratnam, Transparency International Malaysia president

    There has been too many complaints on poll irregularities even before this by-election. I would appeal to the EC and for the government to urged the EC to revamp its whole system in the interest of integrity, transparency and democracy.

    There is a need for greater accountability to taxpayers whose funds are paying EC to do their work. There must be confidence in good governance and this can be seriously eroded if the EC does not undertake to investigate the complaints between now and the coming general elections.

    The EC must be responsible. It cannot dismiss the matter lightly because this goes to the survival of the country’s democratic election process.

    One of the lessons I learned in the Ijok by-election was that we should not pose any picture with any BN leaders and members (especially cunning fellows like the MCA MP Loo Seng Kok) on polling day. Loo insisted that I should take a picture with him. When I obliged, he and other MCA members pushed a poster of Partiban to cover the picture of Khalid held on by me. By doing so, I was seen as if I was holding the picture of Partiban in the midst of MCA members. Who knows they may publish the picture one day and claim that I have supported Partiban instead of Khalid.

    Ronnie,
    Any plans to go to court to nullify the results. Worth the try.

    In General Election 2004 results, lot of areas have been a 3-corner fight between BN, DAP, PKR. Hopefully DAP could reach a compromise with PKR to avoid such split votes. DAP could have captured Taiping parliamentary seat if without PKR inteference; and deal a major blow to M.Kayveas.

    The Ijok by-election results have been marred by allegations of irregularities and abuse of government machinery resulting in some poll watchers calling it one of the dirtiest by-elections in the country’s history.

    On Saturday, Barisan Nasional’s K Parthiban defeated Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Khalid Ibrahim with an increase majority of 1,850 votes in the hotly contested by-election. Parthiban bagged 5,884 votes against Khalid’s 4,034.

    The following are some responses from key poll watchers:

    Wong Chin Huat, elections expert

    The Malaysian election process is threatened by three things – ghosts, thieves and beasts.

    The ghosts are the phantom voters. Thieves are those who buy votes using state money which does not belong to the party. They are stealing public money to woo voters.There are also those who buy votes with their own money so they would have a chances to steal from the public later.

    Beasts are those in the electoral process who use actual physical violence on voters to intimidate them.

    There are two ways to fight this. Law enforcement and government agencies should be given the authority to act and the voters should punish them (those who threaten the democratic process). If not, the democratic process will continue to deteriorate.

    This concerns all of us and if we don’t solve this issue, the entire election process will not get the respect and confidence of the public. People will then use other means to attain power if the ballot box is useless in bringing change.

    Dr Mavis Puthucheary, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (Ikmas)

    I have only been to Ijok once to see the campaigning. Just by looking at the political situation alone, the BN candidate had a clear advantage. The deputy prime minister (Najib Abdul Razak) was allowed to visit polling stations and the PM had arrived in Ijok in a helicopter. The voters were given the impression that the government and the party are the same.

    In 2004, the EC said no more ‘pondok panas’, which I thought was a good idea. Campaigning stops at midnight before polling day but you see there are all these vehicles carrying party flags and banners and shuttling voters to the polling station and indirectly campaigning (for the party).

    Clearly this work to the disadvantage of the opposition as this process is clearly biased in favour of BN.

    It is dangerous for the people to think that BN and the government are not separate. Even at the nomination centre, those who are allowed to enter are all government officers.

    I have seen on nomination day where the candidate was a former minister was given special privileges and given tea and a special seat.

    I did think the opposition has quite a bit of support and it’s a reflection of the voters. The votes for them were respectable given the fact that large amounts of money was used by BN in their campaign.

    PKR did not have the same resources and they relied a lot more on their public rallies to get votes.

    The 200-odd vote increase in the majority for the BN out of an increase of more than 1,000 voters showed that the intensity of BN’s campaigning has gotten people who had never voted before to vote.

    PKR would have done slightly better if the percentage of voters were less and if the BN did not carry out such intense campaigning.

    Abdul Malek Hussin, Malaysians for Free and Fair Elections (Mafrel) chairperson

    We will come out with a report from our monitoring team in Ijok so I will not say anything now.

    The first parties to receive it will be the Election Commission and other government agencies like the police. We will also include an analysis on the pattern of the next election based on the previous by-elections in Pengkalan Pasir, Batu Talam, Machap, Ijok and Sarawak state election.

    And I can give you a clue, it does not look positive.

    Liew Chin Tong, election strategy advisor to DAP secretary-general

    I think there is no doubt that this was the dirtiest by-elections I have seen. With the massive police presence at all the roadblocks and the emergency-like atmosphere, this is very unacceptable and it is not good for democracy.

    It reinforced the impression that the atmosphere was created with the purpose to scare voters. The government wanted the people there to feel that PKR could create trouble. They were portrayed as a party of street demonstrators and violence.

    After throwing so much resources in Ijok, I think that this was not a total victory for BN.

    This by-election saw an increased voter turnout but both sides did not lose support. PKR failed to nail the Malay votes and there was a massive increase in Malay votes for BN. These semi-rural Malays are quite happy with (Prime Minister) Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s agricultural policies and the contracts dished out to them under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

    He is also seen as a nice and pious man.

    There is a lot of soul searching to be done by PKR in facing the situation that the rural Malays are not voting for them. This is the reality that the opposition has to face and they need to think on how to address the issue – that despite the dissatisfaction in urban areas, the government is gaining ground in rural heartlands.

    PKR also had higher expectation which left them disappointed when the results came out.

    80% of Ijok Indian voters supported BN
    May 2, 07 3:49pm Adjust font size:

    MIC President S Samy Vellu today said that almost 80 percent of the Indian voters in Ijok had supported the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition in last week’s by-election.

    However he indicated that the percentage could have been higher if all eligible Indian voters had registered themselves as voters.

    At present there are 3,369 eligible Indian voters in Ijok and Samy Vellu said there were many more who weren’t registered.

    In some cases, he said, a single house had as many as four or five unregistered voters.

    To overcome this, the party has set a national committee to spearhead a voter registration campaign.

    According to Bernama, the committee would be headed by one of the party’s three vice-presidents.

    “We want every eligible Indian to be registered as a voter to face the next general election,” Samy Vellu was quoted by Bernama today.

    “The Indian votes are very crucial for the Barisan Nasional as evident from the Ijok by-election,” he said.

    The Works Minister also said that more than 4,000 MIC branches had been given a month to submit to the party headquarters the list of eligible but unregistered voters nationwide.

    “The MIC headquarters will then assist the Election Commission to register them,” he said.

    The party branches have also been instructed to make house-to-house visits to identify the new voters.

    The party president also said that MIC branches had been told to identify voters who had changed their house addresses so that they could be traced during an election.

    In the Ijok by-election, MIC retained the state seat when its candidate K Parthiban defeated Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Khalid Ibrahim by a majority of 1,850 votes.

    Partiban, 38, polled in 5,884 votes and Khalid, 61, garnered 4,034.

    The by-election was held following the sudden death of K Sivalingam on April 4.

    Changing mentality

    Sivalingam was also a Selangor state exco and his death has created a vacancy for the party to fill up in the state cabinet. Sivalingam’s portfolio was Unity and Plantation Workers.

    Relating to this, Samy Vellu was quoted in another Bernama report as saying that he had proposed a name to the post.

    “I have made my proposal in a letter to Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo and it is up to him to decide and announce the name,” he was quoted as saying.

    He also said that the Ijok by-election has taught a lesson to the party that all MIC elected representatives and divisional and branch leaders must go down to the ground to serve the people well.

    “We need to change our mentality in serving society,” he added.

    “All MIC division leaders would have to submit to me their reports on what they have done for their respective areas.”

    Voters in Ijok had expressed their dissatisfaction with Sivalingam, stating that he had not brought any progress to this tiny constituency.

    The dirtiest by-election in history
    Kim Quek
    May 1, 07 1:24pm Adjust font size:

    Despite the ruling Barisan Nasional obtaining higher votes in the Ijok by-election against opposition PKR, the real losers are BN and Malaysia.

    Why? In an orgy of abuse of power and violation of the constitution and election laws by BN, the latter’s villainous role is exposed to the hilt, Malaysian election has been debased to the lowest level imaginable, and the nation has lost the last semblance of a democracy.

    How? Through massive official and covert bribery, phantom voters, and violence.

    Is there a winner in this election? Yes, it is Anwar Ibrahim and the entire opposition.

    Why is that so? BN’s desperate attempt to win at all costs – committing the worst breaches of laws and exposing Malaysia to ridicule of the world – is by itself a demonstration of the extent of its fear of the Anwar factor in Malaysian politics.

    Through conducting the dirtiest election in Malaysian history, BN has ironically achieved the opposite of what it set out to do – to prove to Malaysians and the world that Anwar is a spent force, and to snuff out the Anwar resurgence.

    In the process, Anwar has re-emerged as the undisputed icon of the masses with his firepower intact, opposition parties have been thrown closer together than ever, and BN has proven to be the rogue that tramples on the constitution and betrays the people’s trust.

    The great tragedy is that, except for those who follow the election through the Internet, most Malaysians sleep through the entire catastrophe without realising it, thanks to the abetment and cover-up of these crimes by the local press and television channels.

    You might ask: what is the proof of all that? Evidences are plenty, enough to fill up a whole book. For this article, I can only briefly relate the more important ones.

    Bribery galore

    Even before nomination day on April 19, BN had commenced instant infrastructure projects just like cooking instant noodles.

    Numerous construction teams had already been working around the clock all over the Ijok constituency to pave and widen roads, installing street lightings, constructing drains, laying water pipes, etc, under an instantaneous fund allocation of RM36 million announced by Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo.

    In addition to this RM36 million allocation, BN leaders led by Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had been announcing new and instantaneous fund allocations amounting to many millions almost daily throughout the nine-day campaign period in this constituency of only 12,000 voters.

    These are for the construction of a new mosque in Taman Purnama (RM5 million), refurbishing and upgrading numerous mosques, suraus, schools, including a donation of RM1 million to Yuk Chih School to complete a new hall and the rehabilitation of a landfill (RM2.3 million).

    Also, 400 land titles were awarded on the spot.

    To further entice the electors, Works Minister and MIC president S Samy Vellu proudly announced to the voters in Tuan Mee on April 26 that he had got estate owner KL Kepong Bhd to agree to the low-cost housing proposal put up by them only two days ago (according to Samy).

    This project, announced in the presence of the company’s senior manager Chuan Chong Meng, will give options to the estate workers (who are also voters) to purchase at the preferential price of RM35,000 per unit against the list price of RM42,000 for others.

    No doubt, this is another feather in the cap for Samy Vellu in his effort to rope in the corporate sector to grant instantaneous favour to voters with the obvious purpose to induce votes in favour of BN.

    Perhaps the most dramatic of such vote-inducement is the moment when Najib was caught red-handed doing a land-for-vote deal in the video, which is now widely circulated in the Internet.

    Just hours before the closing of election campaign at midnight April 27, Najib announced in Tuan Mee to a jubilant crowd of Indian voters that he personally guaranteed that the land applied for by the Indian community there would be speedily granted by the BN government.

    In return, the audience promised to make Tuan Mee the district that would give BN the strongest electoral support in the by-election.

    Earlier, the residents were given 200 units of sewing machines as gifts by MIC.

    For such explicit vote-buying and supported by such irrefutable evidence, Najib (and Samy) should be charged under Section 10 (a) and (c) of the Election Offences Act 1954 and punished under Section 11 of the same Act, which stipulates that such convicted offender shall be barred for election for five years, in addition to a maximum imprisonment of two years and fine of RM5,000.

    The Election Commission and the attorney-general should therefore waste no further time to charge these offenders, failing which PKR should initiate immediate court action to bring the culprits to book.

    Meanwhile, PKR should seek a court injunction to suspend the result of this election, pending a hearing to declare this election null and void.

    Abuse of power

    Since the beginning of the election campaign, the entire Ijok constituency was heavily manned by police and the Federal Reserve Unit armed with riot gear, giving Ijok the appearance of a war zone.

    Then, just days before election day, the police, backed by FRU, began to move in to disrupt opposition ceramah (political talks) on the ridiculous ground that the opposition had no police permit, when no such permit was ever needed during elections.

    This sudden clamp down by police was obviously prompted by their political masters, who must have felt panic in the rising tide of support to PKR, following the arrival of the top guns of DAP and PAS to reinforce PKR’s campaign.

    As a result of this police disturbance, many opposition rallies were halted and cancelled. This is a breach of police discipline, as its function in the election is to maintain peace among contesting parties and not to play partisan political role.

    BN’s abuse of government machinery had also extended to the other ministries such as those of Tourism, Information and Higher Education, whose personnel and resources were unabashedly deployed to support BN’s campaign.

    The worst abuse takes place at the Election Commission (EC), which have been made to function more as an arm of Umno rather than an independent body under the constitution to conduct free and fair election.

    Worse than doing nothing to check the avalanche of abuses that had destroyed the legitimacy and legality of this election, EC chairman Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman abetted such abuses by declaring that these instantaneous allocations of development funds to induce votes during the election is an acceptable practice that does not amount to vote-buying.

    With such endorsement from EC, is it any wonder why BN had gone haywire in its unrestrained throwing of public funds to buy votes?

    Opposition members of parliament should move to censure the EC chairman in Parliament for this betrayal of his constitutional role. And BN should also be similarly censured for making a mockery of our election system through such blatant abuses.

    Phantom voters

    Through a door-to-door checking against the electoral roll, PKR had found many cases of irregularities and discrepancies, grouped as follows:

    Non-existent electors: Malay voters’ addresses are occupied by Chinese who have been living there for decades. And vice-versa. In one village alone, there are 35 such cases.

    Electors cannot be found at the listed addresses, where the current occupants profess no knowledge of the listed electors.

    Electoral roll stuffed with improbable voters: there are 31 voters aged above 100, and over 200 voters aged above 90.

    Many electors are long deceased.
    The above dubious electors are fertile loopholes for phantom voters to cast their votes.

    Coupled with those who sell their votes for cash (recorded clips of such wheeling-dealing are circulated in the Internet), PKR estimated before election day that there would be 1,700 to 1,800 phantom voters.

    Indeed on election day, two bus loads of some 80 un-uniformed women from Perlis leaving the Bukit Badong polling station were intercepted by PKR at 4pm on tips that some on board the buses were carrying two ICs.

    A scuffle between the two camps of supporters erupted and the buses were taken to Ijok police station. The Perlis women were released at 8:15pm while PKR leaders who made the police report were detained and released only at 9:30pm on police bail, and Umno leaders who made similar police report were allowed to walk out freely.

    According to PKR leader Ezam Mohd Noor who was at the police station, in addition to being barred from talking to the Perlis women, PKR was totally kept in the dark as to what actually transpired in the investigation of the Perlis women.

    PKR was not even informed when the Perlis women left the police station. If there was nothing to hide, why the total secrecy and why the attempt to deliberately isolate the complainants and keep them in total darkness?

    Look at the blatant double standard in treating PKR leaders and Umno leaders, while the former were detained as suspected criminals, the latter were allowed to walk out freely.

    And as usual in this country, culprits walk free while whistleblowers are criminalised. And this, I am afraid, is the label of the BN government.

    Najib and other BN leaders have denied there was any phantom voter, but the facts speak for themselves.

    In the Bukit Badong polling station, where the two suspected buses were parked, the voter turnout was an implausible 90.1 percent. Similarly, the overall polling rate for the entire constituency is also an unprecedented 83.1 percent.

    Violence and Khalid attacked

    One feature that marks off this election from any other election is the abundant and ready use of violence to sabotage the opponent, and the main culprit is Umno Youth.

    The latter used violence to prevent PKR election workers to enter areas deemed BN territories, and even PKR leaders were attacked.

    PKR candidate Khalid Ibrahim himself narrowly escaped attacks twice while a photographer in his entourage was wounded.

    In another incident on April 27, where 50 Umno Youth members encircled and blocked 15 PKR workers at the entrance to Taman Sunuh Bestari at Rantau Panjang, PKR pamphlets were forcibly taken away and torn to pieces, while PKR leader Xavier Jayakumar was kicked.

    Opposition solidarity

    An unexpected windfall to the opposition was the solidarity forged during the embattled campaign by PKR.

    Alarmed and disgusted by BN’s dishonourable tactics of rampant bribery, squandering of public funds, abuses of government machinery and excessive use of violence, both DAP and PAS quickly joined forces with PKR to fend off BN’s mounting assault.

    The vigorous efforts put in by PAS’ president and deputy president, and by DAP’s top leaders including opposition leader Lim Kit Siang at the last phase of the campaign auger well for cooperative effort among opposition in future election.

    As for PKR, it should take pride and comfort that in spite of such intensely adverse conditions, it could clinch half of both the Chinese and Malay votes.

    This is an achievement of great significance, for Ijok’s mixed race and rural characteristics represent the kind of constituency where BN is traditionally the strongest.

    Garnering half of Chinese votes in a rural area is indeed a breakthrough for PKR, for the former are traditionally BN supporters.

    And retaining half of Malay support despite the advocacy to replace the New Economic Policy with Anwar’s non-racial New Economic Agenda is a reassuring signal that Anwar is making good a start in his reform crusade among the Malays.

    I have telephoned Tan Sri Khalid last night about my suggestion-to bring the Ijok case to the attention of the His Majesty Yang diPertuan Agong.

    The Ijok case which was filled with bribes, threats and frauds warrants the attention of our King. If the BN Government and Election Commission (SPR) continue to ignore the clarion call for electoral reforms, we have a right to bring the matter to the King.

    We should also urge the King to sack both Tan Sri Rashid and Datuk Kamaruzaman for their failures and biased attitude.SPR under their leadership functions like the 15th component parties of the BN coalition.

    Ronnie, just a suggestion ….. can Tan Sri Khalid sue TV3? Why, because the night before polling day, Buletin Utama (8:30pm) report on the bi-election made Khalid looked like an arse! It was so obvious that it was not only a one-sided reporting but more of a subtle way of campaiging for the Barisan and smearing Khalid at the same time. I really felt so sorry for Tan Sri Khalid when I saw those clips. I hope he can ask his lawyers if it is worth while in taking up a case with the media giant.
