Who’s legal advice are they following?
What does the EC expect?
The title kind of articulates what many hoped to see avoided …. unless there is a way to right what is wrong.
The Elections Commission of Malaysia Website still carries the in their "current news" link the following:
EC will introduce the use of indelible ink at the forthcoming 12th General Elections. All eligible voters will have their index finger nail marked with the ink before being issued with the ballot paper. This procedure is adopted to safeguard against the same person casting his vote again; the ink will remain on the nail for at least 48 hours. It is estimated that some 36,000 bottles of the ink will be used during the 12th General Elections.
