SERI KEMBANGAN: A total of 28 out of 31 police officers and personnel in the Balakong state by-election had cast their votes at the early polling centre in the Seri Kembangan police quarters as of 9.15am today.

According to the Election Commission (EC), this is the smallest number of early voters with only 31 voters registered.

An EC source said the three other early voters did not vote as it was understood that their service had been terminated and they had disciplinary problems.

The early voters, who began casting their votes as soon as the polling centre opened at 8am, were part of the total 62,219 registered voters eligible to vote in the Balakong by-election.

The EC also announced that the polling centre would close at noon as previously fixed.
