Despite the ‘Agong-appointed' double 00 status claimed by Election Commission (EC) deputy chief Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, which he says makes him 'bulletproof'
to criticisms from the electoral reform pressure group Bersih, it's a wonder whether the EC - sprung from parliamentary statute - is ‘On His Majesty's Service' and truly represents the people's mandate.
Indeed Wan Ahmad (right
) has used his own ‘licence' to criticise
, to open his mouth and call on Bersih to "respect the constitution" and accused
the pro-electoral reform group of "spinning issues and playing politics" but when it comes to electoral issues, it is the EC which seems to be dragging its feet and playing ring-around-the-rosy.
Though when it comes to semantics and nit-picks, the EC seems quite reactive and indeed pro-active to boot.
Observe the need to change its official colour
(yellow) for the next general election to disassociate itself from Bersih whose official colour is the same...
