Selangor’s Phantom Voters Is Pakatan Rakyat’s Strategy? Twist and Turn?

Not many days ago, Anwar told the People that the council agreed with the decision of Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim not to hold a state election if Parliament is dissolved soon.

“I agree with his (Khalid’s) view that the Election Commission has yet to clean up the electoral roll.”  Anwar said.

However, Khalid surprised the People, as usual, with his contrary remarks today.

When pointed out that Anwar had said that Selangor would not hold snap elections, which had been deduced as a sign that Selangor would hold separate state and federal polls, Khalid replied that Anwar was only explaining the political strategy of Pakatan Rakyat. 

“Now it’s all about strategy,” said Khalid.

“If they do it on March 8 next year, then we won’t have separate polls,” said Khalid in reference to the polling date of the previous general election in 2008.

“He (Anwar) also does not know when parliamentary elections are going to be held. So how can he know if it will be simultaneous or not?” Khalid said.

On the state government’s campaign to authenticate new voters, Khalid said 80% had been verified but another 50,000 could not be reached.

“We will find other ways to get to the remaining 50,000 to make sure they are legitimate voters,” he said.

Pakatan Rakyat had claimed that as of December 2011, there has been a sudden rise in the number of voters in the state, amounting to about half a million individuals or 35 percent of Selangor voters.  The leaders of Pakatan Rakyat were making the People to believe the existence of a spike in dubious voters.  http://www.freemalaysiakini2.com/?p=25777.

In April 2012, Khalid said the state would use RM5 million grant set aside under the Geran Selangorku scheme to ensure that the electoral roll in the state is clean which involved state civil servants and village heads

In July 2012, Khalid promised he will present the study on the list of 500,000 new voters in all state constituencies in Selangor to the Election Commission (EC).  He said the detailed report on the study to identify the list of new voters registered since 2008, including scrutinising whether the voters and addresses contained in the EC list really existed, would be obtained in early July. http://www.thesundaily.my/news/421016.

Today, the People finally and gladly heard from Khalid that 80% voters had been verified but, disappointingly,  the detailed report mentioned above is still not delivered with RM5 million spent.

On his refusal to debate with MCA Young Professionals Bureau chief Datuk Chua Tee Yong on the Talam issue, Khalid said he was only prepared to discuss issues related to policies.

On July 3, Chua challenged the Selangor government to explain how its exercise to recover a RM392mil debt from Talam ended in questionable deals worth over RM1bil.

The state government is said to have obtained a grant of RM392mil and acquired additional assets worth RM284mil from Talam – bringing the total acquisition to RM676mil.

This RM676mil purchase of assets was said to be part of the RM1bil questionable deal.

And the People have no clue why Khalid think Talam issues are not related to policies. 

Is it because the bail out of Talam required no policies and procedures at all and that is why the white paper can never be completed as agreed?

  1. Pembohong Rakyat must apologize, they played with phantom voters issues, gave false impression that Selangor’s sudden increase in voters was BN’s plot. This is their tactics, everytime election is near, they will accuse BN for using phantom voters.

  2. These idiots use the electoral roll as an excuse so that if they do lose in the next GE, they will claim that the election was rigged. They tried that in the last election but because they won several states, they kept quiet. They again bring up this issue, after 4years, as a precaution.

    THE BERSIH RALLIES ARE JUST THEIR WAY OF JUSTIFICATION SHOULD THEY ACTUALLY LOSE.

      • He can engage me to confirm that the electoral roll is not clean…no need rm5mil, my fees is only rm500,000 but strictly based on records and representations given to me.

      • Auditors can give report based on limited scope and doc given as agreed between auditor and client namely the paymaster…in Talam case, the entity to be audited is selangor state govt, mbi nag state glc while the paymaster is also selangor state govt…obviously any report format and however little scope and doc can be discussed and agreed as limitation of opinion..which is normally stated in the report.

      • Kalau MB benar-benar bayar KPMG untuk menipu kita, dia mesti “condemn” oleh rakyat kuat-kuat!

    • Well, ex Dap, if I can confirm that the electoral is not clean in my capacity as auditor, you just have to accept it, don’t you??

      • That is why we ALL have a BRAIN, to allow us to ANALYZE and REASON out the issue. If the “AUDIT” is just a SHAM, then we MUST NOT accept it!

        We will request FURTHER INFORMATION and DOCUEMENT for our own verification.
        BUT ONE THING WE WON’T DO IS CONDUCTING STREET PROTEST LIKE SOME OTHER IDIOTS USUALLY DO.

      • What is the status now? Did KPMG or the state govt reply how they did the valuation and review?

      • PR are DEVILS masquerading as SAINTS.
        Blaming their misdeeds on others so that their stature is untainted.

        THEY EVEN STEAL FROM TEMPLE AND THEN TRY TO COVER IT UP SO THAT OTHERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT.

        THIS IS THE PR WAYS.

  3. This Talam debate seem never ending! That’s why after I studied all old and recent related blog I want to conclude MB selangor is at fault! Simple reason: inconsistencies! Too many and too often on this topic! Besides that, contradicting each other like DAPs! This I only have one word- alamak!!
