ENSURING ONLY THE ELIGIBLE VOTE
(18 July 2001)

KOTA KINABALU: The Government is committed and is taking action to ensure only those eligible are registered as voters, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, Tuesday.

"The government agencies will enforce all relevant laws to ensure that the electoral rolls are authentic," Dompok said the Government will not condone anyone who tries to taint the electoral rolls by whatever means and immediate action will be taken against anyone or any party that tries to undermine the authenticity of the electoral rolls.

He said with the firm measures being undertaken, the Government will ensure the credibility of the country's democratic institution and enhance the people's confidence in the election process.

 

Yong had asked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the measures being taken by the ELection Commission to ensure that the electoral rolls were transparent, genuine and credible in the wake of the recent revelation that there were mistakes in the electoral rolls.

Dompok said the EC had been receiving close cooperation from the National Registration Department through which the citizen status of voters is being scrutinised on-line.
