All these years many parties (except for BN of course) and individual have been unhappy with the retiring Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman way of handling elections in Malaysia. This is especially so during the Dr. Mahathir regime where the redelineation of new boundaries for the ADUN and MP have been questioned. The redelineations have been seen as a divide and rule tactics in favour of the BN government.

We can see that, where there is a strong support for the BN that area would be divided to make way for more seats for the BN eventhough the population is small. Compared to the majority urban area where population is big but support for the BN is less, the area remained status quo.

Some Sabah leaders (sad to say ‘some’) have been very vocal on the issue of illegals who are given the rights to vote during elections using the “Project I/C”. Kopitiam talks are that some of these illegals are even asked to vote more then once at several places using different I/Cs. Dead people resurrected during election and manage to cast their votes. All these have been voiced out to the EC, to have the Electoral Roll cleaned up but todate nothing materialised. Each time a new Electoral Roll is gazetted, they promised that those electors who are dead or have ceased to be qualified have been expunged from the roll. All those promises and sweet talk are just bullsh**!
