Politically-inclined EC a mere tool of the BN

COMMENT The denial of the basic democratic principle of one person, one vote is another reason, apart from phantom voters and irregularities in the electoral roll, why Malaysians should mobilise in full force for the Bersih sit-in protest at Dataran Merdeka from 2pm on Saturday.

We should all, as citizens, press for clean, free, fair and independent elections. Election watchdog NGO Tindak Malaysia has provided irrefutable evidence of the Election Commission's (EC) bias towards BN by gerrymandering and manipulating electoral boundaries until one rural voter is effectively worth an average of six urban voters, for BN is stronger in the rural areas.
