Its chairman, Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun said also received were 11,869 applications for electoral change from registered voters.

He said the names are among the information contained in the EC’s 2019 Fourth Quarter Supplementary Electoral Roll (RDPT) which will be on display at 914 locations nationwide from tomorrow until February 12.

Applicants who have applied to register as new voters and registered voters who apply for an electoral change from October 1 to December 31 (2019) are advised to check their names in the (RDPT) and relevant protests can be made by filling in Form B or Form C, he said in a statement here today.
