Considering that many areas in Shah Alam and Klang are currently flooding, should the elections go on?

There has been a call for the Election Commission (EC) to postpone the voting process in the areas affected by the floods and if that is to be, it should be announced immediately.

According to a report by NST, this call comes from the People’s Justice Party (PKR) as its vice president, Nurul Izzah Anwar shared that if there is a need to postpone polling, under the law, the EC must postpone the election and not cancel it, only to start fresh later.

The Pakatan Harapan candidate informed that UMNO, Barisan Nasional (BN) are the ones pushing for the elections during the monsoon season.

“We respect the process. If there is a need to postpone polling in areas affected by the current floods such as in Klang and others, an announcement should be made now. This will make things easier for both the candidates contesting and the voters,”

“However, what cannot be accepted is the election is cancelled at a time when there is rumours going around that UMNO is left trailing behind and PH is expected to win,” she said.

Additional, Nurul Izzah explained that the postponement should only take several hours to a day, while calling the EC to be objective, professional and independent.

Malaysians are expected to cast their votes for the 15th General Elections on Saturday, November 19, but unfortunately, many are currently experiencing floods as the monsoon season has arrived.

Stay tuned for more updates.
