KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3, 2015:
Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan is questioning if electoral reform group Bersih 2.0 knowingly and deliberately tried to give false information to Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs.
Abdul Rahman, via his Twitter account, said Bersih had sent a letter to him saying that three out of more than 50,000 voters in Kota Belud wanted him, as Kota Belud MP, to support a no confidence vote in Parliament against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
“My officer did a quick check on the three names claimed as my voters by Bersih.
“It turned out that two names do not have records on SPR (Elections Commission) online.
“Other BN MPs also noticed funny details such as IC showing month as 26 and 10-digit IC numbers,” he said.
Abdul Rahman added that Bersih must clarify if it had delivered false letters to BN MPs.
In response, Bersih chairman Maria Chin Abdullah said the details were submitted by the public through the portal http://www.dearyb.my/, where they could sign an online vote of no confidence against Najib.
Maria said Bersih had no control over the information submitted by the public when they signed the petition.
On the other hand, she said Abdul Rahman should focus on the bigger picture, which was to file a no-confidence vote against the Prime Minister.
“Najib should resign as we now know that RM2.6 billion had been channelled into his personal accounts just before the 13th general election in May 2013.
“Instead of harping on petty issues such as wrong IC number, Abdul Rahman should do his duty as a responsible MP who answers to the rakyat,” she told The Rakyat Post when contacted.
