The EC and Deceased Voters - Why Can't They Adopt this Simple Proposal?

We have spent billions of Ringgit in ICT with Super Corriders etc and it is therefore surprising that the EC wants the families of the deceased to advise of the dead person's identity so that the electoral rolls can be cleaned up.

So what happens when the deceased is the last surviving member of his particular family? More phantom voters?

To me this is quite a simple administrative process.
The department that issues the death certificate should be authorised to advise the EC. If this is done on a weekly or monthly basis, it should cost not more than RM0.30 per name.

No deed to publicise your weakness like this, Mr EC Chairman-Who-Should-be-Retired.
