Hard to Resist

When you get a report with dodgy claims.

pic of face that makes me wanna make puke is from the Malaysian Insider.

"Independent political analyst Ong Kian Ming said his Malaysian Electoral Roll Analysis Project MERAP found some 100 000 problematic names and combined with other previously highlighted issues would “easily amount to over 400 000 dubious voters."
How in blue blazes can TMI regard this person as "independent" is beyond me.

In a Loyarburok article "Reflections & Observations From The 2011 Sarawak Elections – Part 1 (Stories from the East)" by the same "independent" DAP supporter who operates in a context where the ‘science’ of politics is not very well understood whether by voters, politicians or even himself.
"I was based in Sibu for two weeks, as part of the Democratic Action Party’s campaign there."
I don't give any credence to anyone who is an interested party that gives a negative view of the Election Commission.

Here is The Star report, "Electoral roll accurate with 99.6% match in listed details"
Survey findings of a national voter registration audit (VRA) shows that the accuracy of the electoral roll was high with a 99.6% match in the details listed in the identification cards and electoral roll of the voters.

The survey was carried out by the National Institute for Democracy and Electoral Integrity (NIEI), Centre for Independent Journalism and Merdeka Centre in December 2011.

The study to assess the accuracy and completeness of the electoral rolls found that from the sample of 2,400 respondents, most details listed in the MyKad were accurately captured in the roll except for a few cases where there were typographical errors and one case where two voters shared the same identification card number.
You believe what you want to believe.
