SHAH ALAM: Klang MP Charles Santiago has demanded that the Election Commission (EC) show letters to prove several Klang residents asked to have their voting addresses transferred to Kamunting, Perak.

Santiago brought two lawyers and six of the affected residents to the EC’s office in Shah Alam today, including one resident who claims he has never registered to vote.

“I believe there’s fraud so we are requesting the EC to prove the residents requested to change their voting address as well as when the transfer was done,” he said.

He said so far, he had heard of 10 cases involving Klang residents whose voting addresses were transferred to Kamunting. Read more
