Just look at the pictures above and below showing what had happened during polling day of the 13th General Elections at about 3 pm in front of the entrance of a polling center, Lee Rubber School, Setapak, Wangsa Maju (P-116).
A disabled voter was not spared of the intimidation. How could the voters vote freely when there was such a crowd right in front of the entrance into a polling center, Lee Rubber School, in Setapak. Wasn’t this amount to intimidation of voters?
The Election Regulations prohibit any form of canvassing near the entrance of any polling center. The observers of the unregistered society known as Bersih, whose leader has been quoted in the press to have admitted that it has received fund from a foreign agency known as National Endowment for Democracy (NED), was presence. What were they doing there?

Yours truly was surprised why did the police allow such a protest to take place right in front of a polling center.
Why the Bersih Observers did not take any action to stop it? Why were Bersih Observers keeping quiet about such act of intimidation which was an affront to the democratic right of the voters?
What was the outcome of the Bersih Observer that was taken to the police station for investigation?
Such acts of intimidation of voters at the entrance of the polling center cannot be condoned. We must demand for drastic actions to be taken against those behind such acts.
