Opposition suit against the law, EC deputy chief says

By Mohd Farhan Darwis
July 15, 2013

A defiant Election Commission deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said a suit filed in the High Court today to nullify GE13 results is unconstitutional.

He said the action by the opposition parties and several candidates who lost in the election went against Article 118 as only an election court could reverse the decision made through the ballot box.

“Their action is well outside the legal line. Only through an election petition can the court act but I leave it to the judiciary,” Wan Ahmad told The Malaysian Insider.

It’s official, Pakatan goes to court to dismiss all GE13 results


July 15, 2013

Pakatan Rakyat today went for the jugular – asking the High Court to set aside results of all 222 parliamentary seats in GE13, disband the discredited Election Commission and order fresh polls.

This unprecedented move, probably the first in any Commonwealth country, was made necessary because the indelible ink fiasco caused massive cheating, destroyed the integrity of GE13, and deprived the opposition pact of a legitimate opportunity to form the federal government of Malaysia, said Pakatan Rakyat in a suit which was filed this morning.

It noted that some 30 parliamentary seats were lost by Pakatan Rakyat by fewer than 10 per cent of the votes.

“Therefore even if a small percentage of dishonest voters were able to wrongfully vote more than once because of the deliberate failure of the EC to implement indelible ink, they were sufficient to affect the results in a significant number of seats,” said the opposition in a statement of claim.

In addition to zooming in on the many instances in which the full-proof ink was washed away with relative ease, the plaintiffs PKR, DAP and PAS also trained their guns on seven members of the EC. Each of them is being sued in their personal capacity and will have to pay exemplary damages if they lose.

Pakatan sues EC members to force re-election

Pakatan Rakyat has filed a lawsuit against all seven members of the Election Commission (EC) in a bid to seek, among others, a declaration that the results of the 13th general election are null and void.

PKR’s Subang MP R Sivarasa said this is with regard to the EC members’ alleged fraud in the botched implementation of indelible ink and ‘biased’ conduct.

“We want a specific court case to highlight and expose this issue and the main relief is the declaration that the EC failed to perform the constitutional duty, and maliciously and dishonestly engaged in fraud in the misuse of indelible ink in the 13th general election,” he told a press conference at the Parliament lobby this morning.

“If the court agrees with us, then the logical conclusion is the results (of the general election) would be set aside. We want a declaration (for the outcome) in all 222 parliamentary seats to be declared void.”

As a consequence of the alleged fraud, Pakatan is also seeking a court order for the removal of all seven EC members, including its chairperson and deputy chairperson.

Pakatan is further seeking damages from the seven EC members, but said the amount would be assessed by the court.
