GE15: Voters not allowed to wear shorts, slippers is fake news, says EC

PETALING JAYA: The Election Commission (EC) has reminded voters in the 15th General Election (GE15) not to believe information circulating online on a polling day dress code that those wearing shorts and slippers would not be allowed to enter polling stations.

EC deputy chairman Dr Azmi Sharom said voters need not worry because the viral news on the clothing dos and don’ts is fake news.

“The EC has only one rule and that is voters should not wear clothes or hats bearing the symbol of any political party. That’s all.

“All other news stating that shorts cannot be worn, flip flops cannot be used… those are all false.

“If you have any doubts, get explanations on the EC website,” he said when met by Bernama after voting and surveying the voting process at SK 2 Sultan Alam Shah, Section 11, here Saturday (Nov 19).

Azmi said Malaysians who are eligible to vote should come to vote at the recommended times or come any time before 6pm if there are unavoidable matters.

He said as of this afternoon, the EC had not received any serious complaints or reports regarding the GE15 process, and hoped that the voting process would go on smoothly until the polling stations close at 6pm Saturday. – Bernama
