My Mind Is Wondering…

What are they going to do with RM2.4 million worth of indelible ink? 2.4 million woh! That’s a lot of Nasi Kandar man!

I picked this up yesterday:

PUTRAJAYA: The use of indelible ink on polling day has been scrapped after police received reports of a plan to “sabotage” the election process in Perlis, Kedah and Kelantan.

(source) / (source)
The Election Commission has cancelled the use of indelible ink for this general election, citing public order and security issues.

Security issues -_- This is a joke through and through! Now they are saying


Abdul Rashid said the use of indelible ink would not be effective as the country's constitution allows those who refuse to have their fingernail marked with the ink to still be issued with a ballot.

He added that the use of the indelible ink could infringe the constitutional right of a voter to cast his vote, especially if the commission tries to bar someone from voting for having an ink marked in his finger.

"From a practical point of view, the issuance of a ballot paper to such a voter would render the EC's proposal meaningless and will not bring about a positive result, whilst having the potential to create misunderstanding as well as altercations and arguments at polling stations," he said.

Then whose idea is it to use and approve this method in the first place?! Oh here’s more…

He added that the Federal Constitution gives Malaysians the right to vote and a black mark on the fingernail should not bar people from exercising this right, he said. The loophole can only be removed with a constitutional amendment, which requires a vote by parliament, which has been dissolved for elections to take place.

There. See what is the use of our constitution? EC chairman’s contract expiring! Let’s amend constitution to extend his contract! Indelible ink cannot bar people from voting! Let’s amend the constitution! Suka-suka only!

Jokers! A bunch of jokers are running my country!!! Waddup dude?! >(

Oh well, on a lighter note, the phantom voters can now all come out and play! Yay!
