The Perak Election Commission (EC) has confirmed that all political parties in the state must obtain the permission of the local council before signing up new voters in public places.
NONEPSM national coordinator K Kunasekaran (left) had complained that the EC has forced it to get the permission of local councils before registering new voters in places like the pasar malam (night-markets).
When contacted, Perak EC deputy director Che Wan Muhammed Salleh Wan Adnan clarified that the rule applies to all political parties and not just to PSM.
