(Free Malaysia Today) – An ex-army personnel claimed that he was instructed by his superiors to vote for Barisan Nasional and admitted that postal votes are often subject to abuse.
Nasir Ahmad, a former army clerk at the Sandakan military post in Sabah, made the revelation at a PAS Youth media briefing on electoral fraud here today.
In the 1987 general election, Nasir said he and a colleague were instructed to open a bag and tick some 900 postal ballots according to “my taste”, an implicit reference to BN.
“I took about 400 ballots while my friend Ayub Mat took the rest,” he added.
Nasir’s admission was among the many allegations made in the past by former army personnel who claimed to have followed similar instructions.
