Tribunal should proceed despite exit of six EC members – Tommy Thomas

KUALA LUMPUR, Attorney-General Tommy Thomas has urged the tribunal to investigate alleged misconduct by six former members of the Election Commission (EC) during the preparation and conduct of the 14th General Election (GE14) last year, to proceed although the six had resigned.

Thomas also rebutted the claim by former conducting officer M. Puravalen, that the tribunal’s findings would be academic because the findings could pave the way for law reform and set a precedent for future commissioners.

“Every tribunal is a master of its own procedure,” he said at the second day hearing of the tribunal today.
