Even vegetables is listed as voters

PORT DICKSON: People with unusual names have become the latest headache for the Election Commission with critics ridiculing their existence but the commission says National Registration Department records prove that they are genuine voters.

The EC's detractors have been poking fun at the names of animals, vegetables as well as famous people both living and deceased in its roll of 12.8 million voters.

They have been asking why there are voters with names such as Timun (Cucumber), Kangkung (Water Convolvulus), Harimau (Tiger) and Kuda (Horse) in the rolls.
Monikers mocked: A man browsing the electoral roll. Critics have poked fun at the strange names that have appeared on it.

EC chief Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said these people with unusual names, who are mostly found in the interior areas of Sabah and Sarawak, were genuine voters.
