  • Muhyiddin has to transfer Azhar out from the EC and put his man in EC for a known reason.

  • We voters must be more vigilant on this coming GE process than we did the last time. That time we had to pressure the voting results be endorsed and escorted safely to the counting centres. This time we will have to do more.

  • Moo can't afford to have an honest man heading the EC. That's the real reason.

  • Moo trying to remove an honest person and trying to seem like he is doing something good. Its not the speakers position that is in question but rather the EC chairmans.

  • Moo's nomination make it very hard for PH to oppose as Art Harun is a well respected person.
    The Dewan will definitely pass the nomination and Moo can claim he has the support of the MPs to continue as PM8.
    The nightmare scenario will be the EC will once against being tainted and manipulated by crooks again to their advantage . Do expect the ratio of rural and urban constituencies to be increased in many folds.
