  • The commissioners must go because they have derelicted in their duties and did not uphold the democratic process during the recent election. They were also very biased in their actions towards the previous government, hence failing in their duties to act honourably as commissioners. They have failed the people of Malaysia and dont deserve to be on board the EC!!
