Sarawak DAP is furious with the way the Election Commission (EC) had handled the delineation exercise in the state which was announced on Monday.
“The new delineation exercise has dispelled doubts the EC is helping BN consolidate its position and power base,” said Sarawak DAP Chief Chong Chieng Jen, when commenting on the proposed 11 new state seats for Sarawak.
Chong, who is the MP for Bandar Kuching, said the new delineation exercise has defied the basic principle of one-person-one-vote-one-value, pointing out that the most glaring anomaly was the Bandar Kuching parliamentary constituency.
It was already one of the most populous constituencies (52,000 voters). But with the addition of Batu Lintang state constituency, the number of its voters had increased by another 25,000 to more than 78,000, he said.
