The embattled Election Commissioner Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman (ARAR) says we should be prepared for a snap poll.
He says he is not one to speculate. And yet speculate he did, big time, to tell his returning officers that a snap poll may be called anytime.
Or is this one of his hearing problem?
Remember, the govenment merely “suggested” that he cancel the use of indelible ink in the 12th General Election? He went ahead and took it as an order.
Here are the reasons why a snap poll can be called: UMNO members defecting from the party en masse; fueled by Mahathir Mohamad’s “shocking” resignation; and Anwar Ibrahim insisting that he “had the numbers”.
But me thinks, it is only for this reason a snap poll will be called – to make use of the 48,000 bottles of indelible ink!
