Silent walk to protest GE results
As the de facto spokesperson of the silent walk, Chow explained her reasons for organising it.
“Having been recruited by Tindak Malaysia as a Polling Agent, Counting Agent, Barung Agent (Pacaba) trainer and facilitator for the election process, I was unhappy with the blatant use of money politics to influence voters.
“Also, I was disappointed by some of the non-BN component parties’ candidates who did not do their job to protect our votes by ignoring Pacaba’s recommendations to put emphasis on the Borang 14 forms that would have made it impossible to manipulate vote counting.” she said.
Chow explained that Borang 14 would guarantee that all candidates would have knowledge of the exact vote tally before it was officially announced, making the chances of vote count manipulation impossible.
“If all election candidates treated Pacaba seriously, they would know that blackout and ballot box swappings do not work any more because of the Borang 14 system,” she lamented.
