The use of indelible ink during Malaysian election this year has been scrapped. Reportedly, some people have brought in this ink to mark unsuspecting village dwellers so that they would become disqualified to vote on the election day. I must say these crooks were brilliant. I didn’t think of it! It’s a case of not doing enough “what-ifs” scenarios on the Government part. There goes a RM2.4 mil plan for securing the voting process. Admittedly, this is not a big amount. But some people could get rich from this botched scheme. Oh, well. At least, we will return from the election poll stations without falsely believing that the mark on our fingers are the signs of transparent and secure election.
“Makcik, makcik sokong siapa?”
“Oh, Makcik sokong ________”
“Kalau macam itu, tanda jari Makcik untuk menunjukkan tanda Makcik sokong”
“Oh, boleh. Jari yang mana satu?”
“Jari yang itu”
