Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from state PKR cen­tral elec­tion com­mit­tee (JPP) yes­ter­day, the Tangga Batu divi­sion would have the high­est num­ber of vot­ers with 638 peo­ple fol­lowed by Jasin divi­sion with 412 mem­bers.

Mean­while, Masjid Tanah divi­sion has 232 peo­ple, Kota Melaka (180), Hang Tuah Jaya (66) and Alor Ga­jah (64).

“The re-elec­tions process will be held at five polling cen­tres (as Masjid Tanah and Alor Ga­jah di­vi­sions are us­ing the same polling cen­tre) with the vot­ing pe­riod from 10am to 5pm ex­cept at Hang Tuah Jaya divi­sion from 10am to 2pm,” the state­ment said.

The re-elec­tions process for the Masjid Tanah and Alor Ga­jah di­vi­sions will be held at the Jape­run Lendu Com­plex; while Kota Melaka divi­sion at Jape­run Duyung hall; Hang Tuah Jaya at Melaka PKR of­fice in Bukit Piatu; Jasin at Ala­manda MPJ hall; and Tangga Batu divi­sion will be held at the Jape­run Sun­gai Udang hall.

Pre­vi­ously, JPP chair­man Datuk Rashid Din was re­ported to have said its panel had dis­cussed and de­cided the re-elec­tion process, in­clud­ing at six di­vi­sions in Melaka, would be held due to miss­ing vot­ers’ data, tech­ni­cal prob­lems and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion dis­tur­bances.

The re-elec­tions process at the six di­vi­sions only for party mem­bers who turned up to vote on Oct 20. - Ber­nama KOTA BHARU: Prime Min­is­ter Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad has stressed that no gov­ern­ment posts would be of­fered to for­mer Cab­i­net min­is­ter and Ke­lan­tan Umno Li­ai­son chair­man Datuk Seri Mustapa Mo­hamad, who quit Umno and has now joined Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (Ber­satu).

Dr Ma­hathir said it was the pol­icy of the Pakatan Hara­pan (PH) gov­ern­ment not to of­fer posts for a cer­tain pe­riod of time to any for­mer Umno leader.

“They must clean them­selves from the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment’s prac­tices and (they) will see a cer­tain pe­riod of time pass (be­fore they can hold any posts),” he told re­porters af­ter meet­ing Ke­lan­tan PH lead­ers at a ho­tel yes­ter­day.

Also present were the Prime Min­is­ter’s wife, Tun Dr Siti Has­mah Mohd Ali, Parti Amanah Ne­gara (Amanah) pres­i­dent, Mo­hamad Sabu and Ke­lan­tan PH chair­man Sen­a­tor Datuk Husam Musa.

Dr Ma­hathir also ex­plained that PH wel­comed any Umno leader or mem­ber wish­ing to join PH but they must ac­cept the prin­ci­ples it cham­pi­oned.

On the quan­tum of pe­tro­leum roy­alty to Ke­lan­tan, Dr Ma­hathir said he was still scru­ti­n­is­ing the mat­ter from var­i­ous an­gles be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion.

Touch­ing on the fate of fish­er­men, farm­ers and small­hold­ers who would be af­fected dur­ing this mon­soon sea­son, Dr Ma­hathir said the gov­ern­ment would find a suit­able method to as­sist them.

“Grant­ing in­cen­tives as done by the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment is not the best op­tion be­cause we want them to have a way to tackle the prob­lem,” he said.

On PH’s six months of ad­min­is­ter­ing the coun­try, Dr Ma­hathir said he was still un­happy with the gov­ern­ment’s per­for­mance and that many things must be given at­ten­tion such as ef­forts to help the peo­ple. - Ber­nama
