The district police are investigating reports lodged by two local men over what they claimed were “irregularities” on polling day. The first police report was made by a man in his 30s about 8.10pm on March 8 over the announcement of Barisan Nasional candidates’ victory in both the parliamentary and state seats on television before it was officially announced by the returning officer. The man claimed that the votes were still being counted at the community centre when the BN’s victory was already announced on television. Meanwhile, the second police report was lodged by another local man in his 40s about 1pm yesterday claiming that there were postal voters who worked as Election Commission staff at some of the district’s voting centres. District Police Chief DSP Charles Labung b Lawai when contacted yesterday, said that he had been informed about the police reports. “I have been informed and we will launch an investigation into the reports,” he said.
