“They (impostors) realized their mistake and apologized,” Ahmad told the journalists on Sunday.
Similar incident was reported in Selangor where the observer became overzealous on nomination day. He was noticed violating the regulations by obstructing the EC officer in carrying out his duties.
The observers were set free after being warned not to repeat such action. According to Ahmad, the EC has appointed 1,176 domestic election observers from 17 different NGOs nationwide to help monitor the election process. Also, 35 foreign observers from five Asian countries including Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar and Cambodia are present to examine the election processes.
