There are many reasons for Malaysians to be overseas. Posted there as part of their occupations. Serving the Malaysian armed forces in foreign outposts. Studying in foreign universities. Taking a long holiday. Migrated permanently and set up a home overseas, and taken up permanent residence there.
Should all of these overseas Malaysians be entitled to vote in the elections in their “home constituencies”? Isn’t it their constitutional right? Should the Election Commission be duty-bound to allow them to submit their votes by post, instead of having to come back home to do so?
If someone has migrated and not been back for 40 years, should this person be allowed to choose the ADUN/MP of a constituency here?
