100 MALAYSIANS VOTERS FROM CHINA TO GO BACK TO VOTE
Bersih Shanghai launches the “Go Back To Vote Campaign” on 8 March, offering RMB500 air fare subsidy for Malaysians registered voters residing in China.
The campaign was kicked off with an initial donated fund of RMB15,000 sufficiently for 30 persons and later top up to RMB33,000 following an overwhelming response of 66 applicants in just few days.
Following the dissolution of Parliament, Bersih Shanghai announces today that we now successfully raised a further RMB17,000 in order to subsidise 100 Malaysians registered voters from China to Go Back To Vote!
Bersih Shanghai emphasize that the subsidy is for those in genuine need to fly back to vote for GE13, who actually well-off financially should not apply, allowing us to give the financial assistance only to those in genuine need.
Bersih Shanghai launches the campaign to create awareness among the overseas Malaysians on the importance of General Election where it is one of the most decisive institutions deciding whether a Nation is growing prosperous or fail, it will decide the fate of our country and affecting all level of people.
As such, we urge overseas Malaysians voters all over the World, not only those residing in China, must Go Back To Vote this time.
COMMENTS ON EC
Bersih Shanghai is disappointed that SPR couldn’t adopt the same standard vote counting procedures at the overseas polling stations to ensure casted votes are genuinely counted in overseas, in order to avoid the risk of being replaced during the transportation to Putrajaya and the respective constituencies.
According to the Federal Constitution, Article 114 (2), “In appointing members of the Election Commission the Yang di- Pertuan Agong shall have regard to the importance of securing an Election Commission which enjoys public confidence”, the poor response of only about 5000 applicants for the overseas postal vote among the 1 million Malaysian citizens living and working overseas, proving that the current EC has lost the public confident – at least among the overseas Malaysians on their capability in organizing a proper overseas voting.
