208 out of the 295 Chinese in Batu Enam Belas chose BN. How does Gerakan knows this? Are not our Votes secret?


Gerakan Deputy President and Kedah Gerakan chief Dr Cheah Soon Hai in elaborating further said 208 out of the 295 Chinese who voted in Batu Enam Belas chose BN. This mean 70 percent Chinese support for BN.

Similarly, in Sg Limau Dalam, 480 out of out of the 605 Chinese who turned out to vote opted for BN (79 percent) while in Simpang Tiga 204 out of the 285 Chinese who turned up to vote favored BN (71 percent).

"At all this three major polling stations, the total turnout are actually 1,185 with 892 of them voting for BN. The other two polling stations were not taken into account due to the small number of Chinese voters.
This is a stark contrast with DAP's assumption during GE 13 on May, that the Chinese support for the PAS in the constituency is between 45 and 55 percent.

Can some one tell me how the Gerakan Deputy President and Kedah Gerakan chief Cheah Soon Hai is able to get such detailed information about voters in the recent Sungai Limau by-election recently? From this can we deduce that if he so wished he can even know their names, where they work…..anything else that he requires to know in order to reward or punish them for voting Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakayat?

Are not our votes secret?
If I recalled the deputy chairman Wan Ahmad Omar assured voters in March this year that:
“EC clerks at polling centers are disallowed from writing down numbers or anything. This is the law,” Wan Ahmad said the clerk will check the name and confirm that the individual is a voter before staining the finger with ink and giving the ballot paper.
“Each book has 50 ballot papers and they will be given by sequence. Voters cannot pick the ballot papers as it is against the law and regulation.
“The ballot papers have serial numbers. For example, the serial number 100  is unique and is used for a specific polling stream.
“This is to prevent voters from one stream to take the ballot papers and cast votes at another stream.”
Wan Ahmad stressed that nobody will know the candidates chosen by the voters.
“Voters can come to the polling centers at anytime as they are open from 8am to 5pm on polling day.
“As such, there is no way of matching the voters with the ballot papers.” BERNAMA
So how the hell have all these details about whom the Chinese voted for in the Sungai Limau by-election been made available to Gerakan?
