Election Commission chairman Azhar Harun.

KUALA LUMPUR: Election Commission (EC) chairman Azhar Harun today issued an open apology over his earlier statement regarding Kelantan voters.

“I, as the chairman of the EC, humbly apologise to the voters in Kelantan over a statement published by the media on an issue involving ‘outstation voters’ in Kelantan.

“As the chairman of the EC, I will provide services based on the legal provisions to ensure elections are carried out in a clean, transparent, and fair manner, as well as with integrity,” he said in a statement today.

Azhar allegedly made a statement which had offended Kelantan voters who lived outside the state.
