Bawaslu to clarify on election in Malaysia

"Later tonight, we will conduct a plenary meeting, so that at least by tomorrow (4/16) morning or afternoon we can provide a final clarification and reveal Bawaslu's recommendations on the process to be carried out."
Jakarta (ANTARA) -
Indonesia's General Election Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) will immediately convey final clarifications and recommendations on the elections taking place in Malaysia.

"Today, Ms. Dewi (member of Bawaslu Ratna Dewi Pettalolo) and Mr. Bagja (Rahmat Bagja) have returned (from Kuala Lumpur)," Bawaslu member Fritz Edward Siregar said here on Monday.

Siregar made his statement after delivering a call for Peaceful Election and anti-hoax by the National Movement for Digital Literacy Siberkreasi, the Indonesian Film Artist Union (Parfi) 56, and Bawaslu.

"Later tonight, we will conduct a plenary meeting, so that at least tomorrow morning or afternoon we can provide a final clarification and reveal Bawaslu's recommendations on the process to be carried out," he said.

Fritz refused to comment on allegations of horse trading in the elections, saying that he still had to wait for clarification from the two Bawaslu commissioners who had just returned from Kuala Lumpur.

"You have to wait for a clarification from Ms. Dewi and Mr. Bagja who have just returned from Kuala Lumpur," he said.

Fritz hinted that the board's recommendations for the voting process that had taken place in Malaysia would soon be issued.

"We will decide tonight the recommendations on the voting process in Malaysia, whether it was done by post, mobile voting box, or via polling stations, which was carried out yesterday," he said.

Previously, a short video showing people raiding an empty shop house in Bandar Baru Bangi area, Selangor, Malaysia went viral last week.

Inside the shop, a number of bags containing ballot papers were found, and it had been marked in favor of a certain presidential candidates pair.

The ballots were also cast for several legislative candidates from certain political parties.
