“Although we are ready to go ahead with the election, we respect the decision of the election committee,” he told a last-minute press conference at the state party headquarters here.

“I would like to propose that the party elections be reverted to manual method as further postponement of the election could affect the members’ morale,” he added.

Nur Manuty acknowledged that the postponement would also affect candidates who had been campaigning tirelessly for the past month.

According to him, 60,528 members qualify to vote in 24 divisions in Perak.

“We will station someone at each station to inform members that party elections had been postponed,” he said.

Technical problems due to PKR’s e-voting system — newly implemented for the party election this year — were also reported.
