Akmal Nasrullah Nasir, who is the newly elected PKR chief of Johor Baru, claimed that about 20,000 votes have disappeared systematically in the elections process for the party for the post of deputy president. He made a statement that the leadership for the party must look into the votes that have gone missing so that it can be ensured that the new leadership which has a term till 2021 at the office is chosen by the party members truly.
Claims have also been made by him that he had conducted an analysis of the polls and it was seen from the results that the some of the data have been deliberately deleted in some of the branches or voting polls. It certainly had an impact on the total results of the vote for the party. The new elected Johor Baru chief also mentioned that there was a difference of about 20,000 votes after the results came out from some of the areas. The number of votes that were acquired by the candidates for the post of deputy president and other positions in the central leadership did not match the number of votes which the candidates should get.
Akmal, who is also the Johor Baru MP, gave an explanation that the analysis made by him was based on the information that was collected after a announcement was made by the central election committee of the party at each and every polling centre and the results that were uploaded on the party’s election website too.
He also stated that the affected states were Kedah, Sabah, Perlis, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, and Melaka. Akmal Nasrullah Nasir added that the highest number of lost votes was recorded in Sabah and Selangor, where the 17 branches are located.
