被删除的选民名字 // Names missing in Electoral roll



The Luyang Assemblyman Hiew King Cheu urges those people who had found their names missing or being dumped to a far away place should come to his office to registered their complaints and provide evidence for submission to the SPR office to reinstate their names or return to the home place constituency to vote.

In the just over 13th general election, there were many names went missing or record not found. This is highly illogical and some thing is seriously wrong. How can a person who had been staying in the same place, having the same address, and had voted for eight times in the same polling station suddenly find his name went missing? The worst case is that a lady who had flew thousand of miles from oversea to come back to vote in Luyand, had found her name not on the record. A Madam Wong found her name being listed to vote in Tenom, and that is the funniest because she had never been to Tenom.


路阳州议员邱庆洲促请那些人发现他们的名字从选民册被删除或被转到遥远的地方的,可以到他的办公室提呈其投诉,并提供证据以交给选委会办事处,好让他们的名字可以重记录在选民册里,或转返回到原本的选区。

刚刚过的第13届的大选发现有许多选民的名字已不见或没有记录。 这是非常不合逻辑的,一定是那里出差错。 例如一个人一直都住在同一个地方,也没有改变过地址,同时都一直在相同的投票站参与8次的投票,然而突然却发现他的名字已经不见了? 最坏的情况是,有位女士千里从海外回来路阳投票,却发现她的名字没有记录。 此外一名黄女士发现她被搬迁到丹南投票,实际上她从来也没有去过丹南。


路阳州议员办事处将会记录所有这些证据提交给选委会,并要求他们把问题纠正。这是不应该发生的,也不可能是电脑发生故障,极有可能是有人的故意犯的过错! 我们要求正义得到伸张,我们要求当局彻底调查此事。 这已经严重造成了不公平的投票和影响候选人的票数。 此外当局必须调查‘进口选民”被允许投票的事件,因为已有证据显示这类事件是真实发生的。

此外还有许多选民前往投票站要进行投票时,发现他们的票已经被投了,许多投票站都有面对这样的问题。 张先生告诉邱氏说,他在投票日当天830分就到投票站去,却发现有人已经用他的名字投了票。 他立即向该投票站的选举主任投诉,说他是刚刚从家里来,也没被涂上不褪色墨水在他手指上,并强调他是还没投票的。 但是选举主任说他不会相信他,因为他可能已“洗走”手指上的不褪色墨水。 怎么会能这样的呢,为何选举主任知道‘不褪色墨水’是可以洗净的呢?‘不褪色墨水’简直是一个天大的笑话,并浪费人民的钱。

邱氏提醒选委会有关亚庇市的投票中心的选择和安排。 路阳加雅教师培训学院投票中心不仅是不好的,同时也可能造成危险。这是因为投票中心坐落在山脚下,所有选民必须要从陡峭的楼梯上下进出投票站。 有几个老人家还需要依靠他人的协助才能上下陡峭的楼梯。 有些选民甚至必须协助把无法行动的选民,把他抬起来并小心走在陡峭的楼梯到投票中心。 此外有一位年轻的姑娘爬上陡峭的楼梯后,导致脸色苍白几乎晕倒,因当天的天气也非常炎热。

许多其他投票站中心面对严重的交通拥堵,尤其是在投票在高峰期间,当时也没有交警在现场控制交通。 其中建山小学的投票中心最糟糕,由于该处的马路狭窄,是无法让两部车辆通过,造成严重堵塞, 导致选民不得不把车停泊在很远的地方,还要走约两公里才到投票中心。 无法走远路的年老选民,他们要如何去投票呢? 选委会必须要检讨和考量,同时要重新安置投票中心地点。


Names missing in Electoral roll

The Luyang Assemblyman Hiew King Cheu urges those people who had found their names missing or being dumped to a far away place should come to his office to registered their complaints and provide evidence for submission to the SPR office to reinstate their names or return to the home place constituency to vote.

In the just over 13th general election, there were many names went missing or record not found. This is highly illogical and some thing is seriously wrong. How can a person who had been staying in the same place, having the same address, and had voted for eight times in the same polling station suddenly find his name went missing? The worst case is that a lady who had flew thousand of miles from oversea to come back to vote in Luyand, had found her name not on the record. A Madam Wong found her name being listed to vote in Tenom, and that is the funniest because she had never been to Tenom.

The ADUN Luyang office will be recording all these as evidence to submit to the SPR and will seek their cooperation to put the record right. This should not have happened, and it is believed that this is done not because of computer but through “human deliberate fault”! We want to seek justice done and we demand a thorough investigation in the matter. This had caused injustice in the voting and the candidate’s defeat. The situation where “imported voters” are allow to vote, has to be investigated too, because there are evidences showing that this kind of incident is true.

In the case of many voters found someone had voted in their places early before they even reached the polling centre, and this became imminent in many places. A Mr. Chong told Hiew that somebody had voted in his place very early before he arrived to vote at 8.30am on polling day. He showed the Returning Officer that he had not voted because he had no indelible ink on his fingers and he had just come straight from his house. The RO said he wouldn’t believe him because he had “washed” his finger to get rid of the indelible ink. How can this happen, and how come the RO knew that the indelible ink can be washed? The indelible ink is really a joke and a waste of public fund.

Hiew further wishes to remind the SPR concerning the selection and arrangement of the polling centre in Kota Kinabalu City. The Gaya Teacher Training College polling centre in Luyang is not only ridiculous but at the same time might have caused life lost. This is because the polling centre is situated right at the bottom of the hill, and the voters have to walk down a steep staircase and climb back up to the hill top after making stop of at least three times. There were a few older people who had to be help to get down and up the steep staircase. The voters had helped to carry a handicap person down to vote in the centre. A young girl had fended and turned pale when she tried to climb the flight of the steep staircase.

Many other polling centers faced serious traffic jam during the peak hours of voting, and there were no traffic police to control the cars. The polling centre in SK Kiansom is the worst because of the narrow road which cannot allow the passage of two cars to pass by. The jam was serious and people had to abandon their cars outside and walked two kilometers in and out of the polling centre. What happen if there are older voters who cannot even walk? It is a must that SPR should review and reset the polling centers for future elections.

Hiew King Cheu.
