‘Clean up electoral roll before adopting biometrics’


news source: Malaysiakini

The Election Commission (EC) has to ensure that the electoral roll is free from flaws before implementing the biometric system – if the EC wants to restore public trust in it, the Association for the Promotion of Human Rights (Proham) says.

The NGO, formed by former commissioners of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), met with the election commissioners led by EC chief Abdul Aziz Yusof at the EC headquarters in Putrajaya today.

NONEA report compiled from the discussion session between the EC and Bersih 2.0 on July 29 was submitted to the EC by Proham members Ramon Navaratnam, Denison Jayasooria, Hamdan Adnan and Siva Subramaniam.

Gaining the upper hand


By Zainah Anwar (article source: the star)
Re-delineation of constituencies often tends to benefit the party in power in many parts of the world.

FROM 1991 to 1993, I spent a lot of time organising election monitoring missions to several African countries that were moving from single-party dictatorships to multi-party democracy.

Most of these countries would have received technical assistance from the Commonwealth Secretariat where I worked to ensure that free and fair elections could indeed be held.

These included enhancing the legal framework, fostering integrity of the election process, promoting independence and transparency of the Elections Commission, and putting in place free and fair regulations and arrangements during the campaign period and on polling day.

Very often, the eminent persons that usually made up the Commonwealth Observer groups were able to pronounce that the results of the elections represented a free expression of the will of the people on polling day, meaning that those who wanted to exercise their right to vote were able to go out and freely vote for the candidate of their choice.

But in many situations, the observers found difficulty in pronouncing unequivocally that the elections had been truly fair. Several kinds of violations could take place, from unfair access to the media to flawed electoral rolls and political bias towards the incumbent ruling party in the re-delineation of constituencies. read more
