Don’t jump the gun, says EC chief


KUCHING: The Election Commission (EC) is requesting all parties not to jump to conclusions implicating the EC in the on-going Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) investigating the illegal immigrants issue in Sabah.

Its chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof yesterday said as long as the RCI was carrying out its task, no one should comment on matters raised during the proceedings.

“Don’t conclude anything before the proceedings are complete. Don’t simply accuse the EC of anything. The investigation is not complete yet.”

Speaking at a press conference here, he said making a comment now was like making a premature conclusion on the outcome of a movie. — Bernama
