The process

Boy: Dad, look at that man there.

Dad: Which man?

Boy: That one in the white shirt and black pants.

Dad: They all wear the same, which man?

Boy: That one standing against the reception counter reading Utusan Malaysia upside down.

Dad: Yes, so whats with him?

Boy: Can't you see, he is hiding a dagger.

Dad: Oh that. If you look carefully, all the men and women here carry daggers.

Boy: But dad, isn't that against the law.

Dad: Yes, but no one cares actually and this doesn't happen everyday.

Boy: Why are they carrying daggers dad?

Dad: Its their election season so they need daggers to stab people in the back. Oh, don't pay them any attention. They do it all the time.

Boy: Why are there so many counters and Commissioners of Oath at every table dad?

Dad: This year's elections are no more decided by votes but by statutory declarations.

Boy: What's a statutory declaration dad?

Dad: You see, a voter would go to a Commissioner of Oath and declare that he would vote for so and so. The document that he or she signs would be a valid document.

Boy: Why don't they just vote? It would be simpler that way.

Dad: The candidates are afraid that after taking their money, the voters vote for somebody else who offers more money.

Boy: Oh, isn't taking money to vote a form of corruption?

Dad: No, not if you put the money in green packets. It becomes duit raya.

Boy: That means they cannot change their minds after this?

Dad: Actually last time, that is the case but nowadays its different. If we come tomorrow there will be different Commissioners of Oath to nullify the SDs taken today. Its called the Bala Retraction Oath.

Boy: They can do that? But then can't the candidate sue the voter if he nullifies his SD?

Dad: Not by law, but he could try try the last alternative?

Boy: What is that dad?

Dad: Day after tomorrow, if we come here, there will no more be Commissioners of Oath around, instead there will be officers from Jakim with Qurans for the Sumpah Laknat.

Cikgu,
For a million ringgit they don't mind doing the sumpah laknat everyday. Some of them would kill for money.

but i think even its a form of corruption, the party's diciplinary board will handle the case. they dont need interference from the ACA...boleh?

remember mad ismail? hamid said he's already been suspended by the party so no further punishment needed.

above the law diorang ni rupanya.
