‘EC’S MOVE MAY HURT BN’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

IPOH: The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion’s (EC) re­de­lin­eation ex­er­cise may re­sult in Barisan Na­sional (BN) los­ing votes, said Umno supreme coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Ta­jud­din Ab­dul Rah­man. “This is a pos­si­bil­ity if the sup­port of those solidly be­hind a cer­tain can­di­date is trans­ferred to an­other con­stituency. They might just refuse to cast their votes since they have to elect a new can­di­date in a new con­stituency,” he told re­porters here. The Pasir Salak MP’s com­ment fol­lows the trans­fer of 5,000 vot­ers from his con­stituency to Teluk In­tan un­der the ex­er­cise.
