EC Deputy Chairman Wan Ahmad showed his true colours of lacking 3Is of independence, impartiality and integrity when he launched attacks on Bersih as Pakatan Rakyat “stooge”

If there is a nation-wide quiz asking Malaysians who could be responsible for the two following headlines on online media today, “Bersih is Pakatan stooge in bid for Putrajaya” and “Bersih Pakatan’s catspaw”, I don’t think anyone who is not in the know could get it right despite everyone being given three guesses each.

The hot favourites for these guesses would be UMNO leaders headed either by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin or the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, while others named would include the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and other Umno and Barisan Nasional (including MCA, Gerakan, MIC) leaders.

Nobody would have thought of any Election Commission high official as the culprit for these two quotes for they are completely out of character of what is expected of Election Commission officers.

The Election Commission Deputy Chairman Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, who is the culprit for these two headlines, showed his true colours of lacking the 3Is of independence, impartiality and integrity as intended by the Malaysian Constitution when he launched bitter attacks on Bersih and Pakatan Rakyat, in today’s forum “Bersih’s demands – what is the Election Commission’s explanation”.

If the Election Commission is truly independent and scrupulously stays out of the political wars between the contending political parties in the political system, the full panel of Election Commission Commissioners should convene an emergency meeting to ask Wan Ahmad to resign from the Election Commission.

Otherwise, Wan Ahmad will only be confirming perception in public minds – that the Election Commission is nothing but stooge and catspaw of Barisan Nasional, doing the BN’s bidding rather than to discharge its constitutional mandate to carry out a free, fair and clean election system.

    EC knows how the the many discrepancies of the ballot paper issued for the Parliament seat and the respective state seats arise.

    EC must have manipulate with the Government printers of the ballot papers to print extra ballot papers.

    How much is the bribe money for each additional ballot paper?

    RCI can look into all the most important issue – major discrepancies on the ballot papers issued.

    I hate to say “I told you so” because in an earlier posting I had commented that it is no use lambasting the EC Chairman as I have noticed that during press conferences he can always be seen looking left and right towards his officers for confirmation for his comments – clearly indicating that he is reliant on them for information. I had then pointed out that the person to watch is the Deputy. I have noticed several times in the past his comments were clearly biased and uncompromising.
