BUTTERWORTH: Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy has asked Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof to determine the authenticity of Ramasamy's daughter's registration as a voter.
Ramasamy said his 25-year-old daughter who is pursuing her PhD in United Kingdom submitted a photocopy of her identity card and signed the registration form when she was overseas.
"If a political party submitted my daughter's application form, then I want to know which party submitted and the assistant registrar who processed the forms," the Batu Kawan MP and Prai assemblyman said at a press conference in his Prai service centre today.
"I want Abdul Aziz to get to the bottom of the case and reveal the truth and not to give unacceptable and illogical answers to the issue," he said, expressing surprise at Abdul Aziz's statement that Sri Vaitheki registered as a voter through normal channels in 2011 in Kajang, Selangor.
On Feb 3, Ramasamy lodged a report at the central Seberang Prai police headquarters in Bandar Perda over the matter.
He said he learnt about the matter after receiving a New Year message via a letter from the Selangor Barisan Nasional which was mailed to his house in Semenyih, Selangor and suspects fraudulent exercise in voters' registration.
Ramasamy added he was waiting two weeks for the outcome of the police investigations before deciding the next course of action.
