Malay:Unusual voter increase in KK

KOTA KINABALU: MP Hiew King Cheu is crying foul over the huge increase in the number of voters in the Api-Api state constituency which comes under the Kota Kinabalu parliamentary constituency. He said he was shocked to see this in the newly released electoral roll where it showed that the number of voters had increased by 4,369 voters between 2011 and 2012. The polling centres with big voters increase are Kg Air, Jalan Perpaduan, Jalan Masjid Lama, Taman Elok, Jalan Muhibah and Jalan Bandaran. The number of postal votes have also increased from 332 to 844 in the constituency. “The total voter increment since the first quarter of 2011 to fourth quarter 2012 for Api-Api state constituency is 10,746 to 15,115 which is an increase of 40%. “This is totally unacceptable and we really don’t understand how this can happen. From the increase in the voters, it is quite sure that there is definitely someone making a special arrangement to move to increase the voters to ensure a win. May be SPR (Election Commission) can tell us,” he said.
