MACC to monitor polls

Date:

MELAKA: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) personnel will be on field duty to monitor the Melaka state election process.

Melaka MACC director Mohd Shahril Che Saad said a team had been formed for the purpose.

“We will conduct monitoring by focusing on the nomination process, during campaign period and polling day.

“We will also focus on efforts to prevent corruption which involves elements of abuse of power at the field,” he told reporters after attending a programme, here today (Oct 28).

The Election Commission has set Nov 20 as polling day for the Melaka polls with nomination day on Nov 8 and early voting on Nov 16.

The election was called following the dissolution of the Melaka State Legislative Assembly on Oct 4 when four assemblymen announced that they have lost confidence in Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali. – Bernama
